POLL TIME!!!

...OK, y'all, time for a bit of  'interaction'...we haven't had a poll in awhile, so, here goes... the topic?
Which 'screen cap' used to this point in the GingerFilm reviews is your fave? Now, there's no such thing as a bad Ginger pic, right? But, a lot of these early films were just so far gone, quality-wise, it was nigh to impossible to get a decent cap... but, there WERE a lot of AWESOME ones so far, and these are my 'picks' to this point:
Follow The Leader


The Tenderfoot


42nd Street


Gold Diggers of 1933


Sitting Pretty




Flying Down to Rio



Chance at Heaven


...well, that's the lineup...pretty dang tough - as soon as I settle on one, I look at another, and say, "Hey, that's one's awesome, too!!!" This is NOT to 'toot my own horn', as far as my 'technical prowess' goes...it's just that Ginger is a pretty impossible subject to mess up!!!

Well, off to the polls with you...vote early and often... I've made it so you can vote for multiple ones, just to 'beef up' the results a bit...

KIG, y'all!!!

  2. ...thanks for the kind words, A.T.!!! These were pretty awesome...unfortunately some of the other films were 'bad picture quality', so just didn't have very good results...plus, some of those films really didn't do may 'close-ups'... a shame!

    Thanks again! - and, as always...

    KIG!
