Anyway, we just kicked around the idea that she should do a 'guest post' for G-ology...and, I noted that it doesn't necessarily even has to be 'all Ginger' (I did a birthday post for Barbara Eden a few months back)... although, as we've said before, all paths ultimately lead to VKM, right? So, without any further ado, here is Katie's wickedawesome post about the incredible actress Julie Andrews, and how yes, there are some Gingery connections afoot... thanks again, Lady OGRE!!!
Hey Gingerologists - SassyGinger here! No I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth - no worries Huey has been keeping tabs on me to make sure I'm staying out of trouble. ;) In the meantime our Fearless Leader has invited me to the first if not one of the first "guest bloggers" here on Gingerology. What to do with my space??? Well I figure I could broaden everyone's horizons and talk about one of my other favorite actresses - the star of Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and of course The Sound of Music - Julie Andrews.
But if I'm going to write about Julie on a Ginger blog don't you think I should find SOME connection? Not as hard as you might think!
First of all - as mentioned just a couple of posts ago - at the ripe old age of 14 Ginger won the Texas State Charleston Championship in 1925. And of course she danced a little Charleston in Roxie Hart and on an episode of The Lucy Show. :)
In 1965 Ginger co-starred as The Queen in a television production of Cinderella.
One of my favorites - We all know that in 1944 Ginger starred in the film Lady In the Dark...which wasn't such a big hit for her (but she got to wear that amazing dress)
