    1. ...looks pretty good for ginger in this round... a bit worried about going up against Judy in the finale, tho... I'm already flipping thru those 'off-set' Barkleys pics with G&F along with Judy...

      OK, check out the 'header, as there's ANOTHER poll that's cropped up... this one is just a 'flat-out' 'who's the best actress pre-60s? It's gonna be tough to get past those top dawgs (Kate andd Bette), but Ginger is 6th now... needs more votes to jump up a spot or two, anyway...
      I need to jump over and 'catch up' on the proceedings on your awesome journey! It's been a bit hectic this week...blah. Looking good for the weekend, tho... stay safe and KIG, of course!!!

    2. Wow - I'm impressed that you actually got links to work in a comment! But yeah, those are incredible pics! My ALL-time fav pic, and one I would hang on my wall if properly framed, is the one where Ginger and Lela are eating ice cream at the counter, with Oscar standing between them... somebody knew what they were doing with that photo-op!

      Thanks, Lady F!!! AND, Kat, of course! :-)
