...er... have y'all looked at the 'blogs I follow'...
"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause*...Coming Soon to 'The Corner'... HAT CHECK GIRL (1932)"
(* - can be taken as the proper spelling in this context... )
...now, when you click on the link, it sends ya to her site, but no info as of yet regarding HCG... I honestly have heard some 'rumblings' here and there regarding a supposed copy of HCG floating around... if it DOES surface, that would be pretty much the coolest thing to ever occur in Gingerology's short history (well, for me, being at 100 West Moore Street in Independence, MO. on 07/16/11 was pretty awesome...) but, THIS would obviously complete the GingerFilm collection...well, save for a few of her early 'shorts'...
SO, here's hopin', right? Molly has dug up a LOT of Gingery stuff over the last year or so, so... until proven otherwise, I'm drinking that gingery-infused Kool-aid!!! How bout Y'ALL???
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
