...a rare 'non-Gingery' post to wish an incredibly Happy Birthday to...
Most of these pics were compiled by...er...dang it, I can't remember...but a hearty 'THANKYEW!!!' to whomever compiled them...
Of course, there IS a 'Ginger Angle', as Barbara and Ginger were in a movie together, 'Quick, Let's Get Married'; or, The Confession'; or, 'Seven Different Ways' (note: when a movie is known by three different titles, there's your 'red flag' regarding it...oof) - anyway, I thought how can this film NOT be at least DECENT with Ginger AND Barbara in it????
Well...it WAS possible, VERY unfortunately... it's 'watchable', but just by a bit...
Maybe on subsequent viewings my opinion will change on this one... but for the record, Ginger LOATHED this film, so...ditto for the Hu-ster... even tho she liked most everyone IN the film...of course she also got to 're-unite' with Ray Miland in it, but after production they were on the 'outs' due to the film's floppiness...
Ok, well, here's a few more wickedawesome Barbara pics, because...it's her BIRTHDAY!!!
...OK, y'all, Keep It Gingery...AND Barbara-Eden-eee!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
