You better watch out...

...or Christmas will sneak right up on ya and leave reindeer footy-prints across yer backside!!!

...but I know that won't happen to any of y'all...you know, last-minute shopping, prepping for the big meals, keeping all the extended fam happy upon their visits, wrapping presents, and... beginning the recovery process... oh yeah, somewhere in there is the actual Christmas observance, of which I hope y'all remember what all this is REALLY about... and yeah, 'y'all' includes moi, thank ya very much... and yeah, we're hitting the mall (again) tomorrow...

ANYWAY, not really sure what brought all that dissertation on, but... all that to say, hope all you Gingerologists out there have a great, yet reflective Christmas...

----

As to 'odds and ends', first off, we GOTTA have a few GingerPics, right? So...
...always thought this pic is just...Christmas-y... er, which film is this pic from, y'all? ...I REALLY should know this stuff by now, right?


...Ginger would have been an awesome mom, y'all...


...Ginger and the Three Wise Guys... er, are these the Tom, Dick and Harry Santas???


...and this one...well, may not be overtly Christmas-y, but...honestly, just too beautiful to matter...Merry Christmas to Hu...


...here's a screen cap of the short vid below...Ginger appears (ALL too briefly) around the 1:15 mark...
video

...well, Ms. Lombard got some nice face time, anyway...something tells me she's gonna take the Big Best Actress competition in the works this year...well, you know the one Monty and Mythical Monkey headed up last year, where we propelled our girl to victory!!! ...BTW, they are 'retiring' past winners, i.e., Ginger, and Irene Dunne... so, THIS year, y'all just jump over there (I'll post stuff when it nears...) and vote for...whomever... but Lombard is the odds-on fav, it appears...

-----

Ginger's Ma, Lela, was born on Christmas Day, 1891... just throwing that out there for your knowledge, if ya didn't already know...

-----

Hey, TCM is showing 'Twist of Fate...this morning! Hope y'all get to see (and/or 'record') this one if ya don't have it, as it is one of the 'more elusive' GingerFilms out there... it's a pretty good film, but not your typical 'Ginger-centric' feature... it's more of a suspense deal, so... check it out.

-----

...yeahI'mdoin'screencapsforRobertarightheredirectlysodon'taskaboutit...it'sgonnagetdonetrustme...

...and to prove it...well, that sounds a bit tacky... let's just say...here's a few I've done so far, with a few choice comments regarding the process, or painfully evident lack thereof...
...Roberta...the GandF film which may prove too elusive for a HueyReview...



...it's kinda 'sad' to see Ginger smoking (glad that she quit), but...this is one of those 'caption this photo' deals, to be sure...


 "...it's been, what, at LEAST two months, and NO sign of Huey! ...I mean, has he gone around the bend or something? ...it's like that time David Lee Roth went to the Amazon for a few months without telling anyone..."


 "...you know, I thought Hu was starting to 'slip' a bit when he whipped up that 'Star Trek Convention' theme for us...I mean, where did THAT cockamamie jive come from?"


 "...you know, it's YOU who have driven that poor sap to his current state... the way you dress and doll up... he keeps running out of drive space with all the screencaps... he's up to Terabytes on account of you! And that number ya got on there isn't gonna help the state of his 'prt scr' button..."


 "...listen, Huey will be fine, you flippin' huckster...he just needs time to... ease back into this writing thing... he's had a lot of irons in the fire lately... I'll try to keep my presence 'subdued'... and quit making that 'stinky face', please..."


 "well, so much for 'subdued'... ...about as subtle as a bag full of live porcupines dumped upon your noggin...   ...the South Gingerville paramedics are on standby at Huey's Lair... I feel the screen cap quota for this scene will not end well at ALL, y'all..."

 ...so, there's a snippet of it... the 'full review' will... be... at a point... beyond this exact point... in TIME...

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family Huey! Just a quick question, I so agree she would have been a wonderful mother, but does anyone know if it was her choice to not become one or did it just not happen? Again, Happy Holidays!!!

  2. ...I am somewhat sure she could not have one... but I could be wrong... I do know her mom had one miscarriage before Ginger, and Ginger herself had a pretty rough entry into the world, if I remember correctly...

    sad, but... she gave so much to her work, it would have been tough to provide time for a young'un...although if anyone could have pulled it off, it would have been her, no doubt...

    Thanks for reading, Catarinah! and have a great Christmas - holiday time!!!

    1. honestly - thanks for the kind words, LF!!! ...it's looking like 2013 before the Roberta will be accomplished...but, should be fun...just the few scenes I watched were awesome...I luv Tanka Scharwenka, yes I DO!!! ...and I've got some ideas for Gingerology2013... now that we've made it thru the Doomsday scenario... If I'm lyin', I'm Mayan... :-)

      Hope y'all have an incredible Christmas as well, LF! Mr. T should have a fun one, as it should be the first one where he knows what's going on... Reed is pretty hopped up about it this year for the first time...

      KIG!

  4. Good thing the Mayans got it wrong so we all still have a chance to see the Roberta review. And a nice little tease you have put together already. With Ginger only being in half the movie, you should be able to contain yourself fairly well...No? haha

    Have yourself a Merry little Christmas. I'm sure Santa knows just how good you have been this year and will reward you for it. I'm looking forward to a very gingery 2013 on Gingerology too. KIG!

    1. ...hope you and yours do as well, 'e'!!!

      and it looks like I have a 'reprieve' to do the review 'proper'... I think it will be seeing the light of day not too much farther out...work load at work is 'leveling off', so should be the opportunity to get 'er done...

      KIG!

  5. I remember I posted that video such a long time ago. What can you do about Ginger only appearing a few seconds? At least we get to see her gingery presence! :)

    Have a very merry Christmas, and can't wait for the Roberta review.

    1. ...I was trying to remember who sent me that one...thanks! I was trying to figure out what studio that was for...wasn't DeMille an MGM guy? Ginger appeared to be in the 'RKO' range there, age-wise...

      Hope y'all have a great Christmas as well, GF!!! and yes, G-ology will jump into 2013 with gusto! :-)

      KIG!

  8. I heard there were a bunch of big storms and tornadoes that went through Alabama today. I hope they missed you and that you and your family are all alright.

    1. Thanks, 'e'... they were down in south Alabama...we are near Birmingham, in the 'upper third' of the state...we did get some strong wind and rain, but no damage or power outages, so...no worries here.
      ...but yeah, Mobile got waxed a few times...last I heard there were no fatalities, so that's a blessing... but it's a kick in the head to get heavy storms on Christmas... well, some folks to the north are getting a 'white Christmas', but looks like that's gonna be a bit more than what is desired at any one time as well...

      Hope you are doing well at your locale... and hope Christmas was a great one!

      KIG, 'e'!

  9. A belated merry Christmas, and thanks to putting pressure on Carole to win this year (he said with good-natured sarcasm). BTW, you've probably run this pic of Ginger and another '30s star before, but just in case you haven't...

    1. ...thanks for the link, VP! I have seen that one a few times, but honestly I don't have it in my 'GingerChristmasPic' stash...so thanks!

      AND, yep, I'd say Ms. Lombard should get the W in the contest this year...I know she will have my full support, for sure!

      Thanks again, VP! ...KIG - and Carole-y!!!
