Have a GINGERY 2013, y'all!!!

...from all the good folks at Gingerology!!!
...in celebration of Gingerology's 80th (and last) post for 2012 (a record for 'posts in a year' for G-ology...for whatever that's worth...), and generally, just because I love this video, here is...well, this video, originally aired December 5, 1964 -  although I'm sure most of y'all have seen this one...it's new to me, and pretty dang awesome:
video
...I'm pretty sure Ginger is 'lip-synching' here, but...so what? This is 'middle-age' Ginger footage, which Hu needs a LOT more of!!!  :-]  BTW, her hair is just perfect here...I REALLY dig how it gets a bit more 'dark' at the 'ends'... yepyepyep...
...I just ran across it on YouTube, which, honestly I don't 'search' as much as I should...it's amazing there's stuff like this out there, considering there wasn't any VCR action going on in the early 60s... this must be from a 'master tape' somebody had somewhere... a sincere G-ology 'thanks' to whoever set this up!
-----
...thanks to all of y'all who have supported G-ology this year... there's been some very Gingery stuff afoot this past year, with of course the big Boston trip at the top of the Hu list... here's hoping that 2013 is even more Gingery!!!
Stay tuned for some 'new' features for the site soon...well, I'm contemplating some things, anyway... along with 'development' of the 'GingerFilm' blogs, Hu should have a lot of stuff to do...
...and yes, "Roberta" is still on deck... well, the film review, that is...although... would love to 'contact' Ms. Olden if possible... stay tuned...

And remember...it's YOU that makes G-ology tick!!! so, thanks again! ...and, of course....

Keep It Gingery in 2013!!!

    1. wow...I thought you might have been the author of this clip... good to be able to get one out folks are unfamiliar with...there are actually a few out there I haven't seen... not that I don;t have enough GingerBlogs to keep up with, but...I will most likely set one up dedicated to 'GingerTV', which will be....yup, Ginger clips from various TV shows!!! I know a heap are on YT, but...hopefully the 'dedicated blog' will be a much more 'precise' avenue...

      KIG, GF!!!

    1. great stuff...when Ginger 'breaks' the frozen prop bottle over dude's head...classic!!!

      I honestly have yet to watch the Zane Grey, altho I have it...well, it's on YT as well, now... but one of these days I will 'round up' all of these in some kind of format...a 'dedicated blog' (see reply to GF)...so stay tuned...

      KIG in 2013, 'e'!

    2. I love the breaking the bottle on the head gag and all of that sketch really. Especially when Ginger has to fight to not completely crack up :) I'm looking forward to a GingerTV blog. She was on a lot of TV shows too so you'll have plenty to work with. I forgot about this Hollywood Palace appearance on You Tbe:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIXqlAIPjx8
      Ginger is exceptionally cute in the first dance number and splendiferous in the "I Like New York in June" song and dance. Have you seen it?

      A great 2013 to you too and I'll KIG in June, how about you? ;)

    1. yupyupyup...this whole clip is pretty awesome...the first 'routine' was so cool...did conjure up a few of the epic GandF dances... and the second one, while the 'skit-song' was a bit choppy, ginger more than compensated by...being GINGER!!!

      Have a great and Gingery 2013, LF!!!
