First off, an article about the passing of federal judge Robert J. Kelleher, who was also an avid tennis player, died Wednesday in Los Angeles, aged 99... check the link below... the Ginger angle? Well, jump to the last sentence of the article for that...
Robert Kellher obit
This next article addresses an event probably wrapping up as I type...sorry I didn't find it a bit earlier, but...it's concerning Ginger's Duesenberg, which is appearing at a car show in Kansas City AS I TYPE (Sunday, 6/24)...well, hope someone out there got to see it, but to me, it's pretty cool the owner is 'taking it around' to different shows...good sign... and I think that it may be Ginger's way of dropping a hint to ME to get cracking on that REVIEW! :-]
Ginger's Duesenberg at Kansas City Car Show
Well, wrapping up with a pretty thorough review of the new book, The Astaires, by Kathleen Riley. I haven't read it yet, but will try to one of these years (oof) ...my Ma HAS read it (she's an avid reader), says it's pretty interesting, but not much Ginger mentioned...well, after all, it IS about Fred and Adele... but this review has its first few paragraphs discussing Fred and Ginger's routine in 'Night and Day' from The Gay Divorcee (yeah, yeah, Ginger, I'll get right on that review...) ...and how it circumvented the Hays Office... as it was QUITE the 'interpretive dance', shall we say... :-]
NYT review of 'The Astaires'
Well, that's all I got...for now... oh, did I mention I'm working on the review for The Gay Divorcee? ...hope y'all are having a great weekend, and until that review is reality,
...Keep It Gingery, y'all!

Which of the Mark Sandrich - directed GandF films is your favorite?
Anyway, there's the poll... hopefully I'll make a decent dent in the 'Divorcee' review this weekend...I'll most likely 'minimize' the number of screen caps for the dances, and MAY defer to the 'Divorcee' blog...THAT'S probably gonna be the norm from here on, as the 'uber-Ginger-face-time' movies will just be impossible to have all the caps in one review post... I KNEW there was a reason to set all of those up!
Hope the weekend goes well for all of y'all out there...we have clear skies and upper 80s, so I'll probably do some outdoor stuff... about that time, right?
Remember, vote early and often! ...and,
Keep It Gingery!

...speaking of which, I hope y'all have checked out the YoungManOfManhattan blog, which is the 'rough draft' of how ALL the film blogs will eventually be set up... again, if you have ANY suggestions for setup, please reply...most likely to this post...I'm going to try to keep up with any comments in the film blogs, but I may just set up a 'general comment' section at the top of each blog... and, as for G-ology, comments are 'pending approval', which is unfortunately a product of our times... oh well.
Glad to be back... I have a test on Saturday Morning, but should be back at it after that...so, until then...
Keep It Gingery!!!

Well, The staff of Gingerology is off on vacation in a few days, but a post MAY sneak into the plans whilst away from home base... otherwise, the 'construction' of the 'FilmBlogs' are still underway... I am going to set up all 'general' features on the first 'full length' film blog, Young Man of Manhattan...so, be checking in on that one every now and again, and PLEASE throw in any suggestions for the blog 'content'...once YMOM is 'set-up', then it's on to all the others in similar fashion, one-by-one... and of course, The Gay Divorcee is on the way, review-wise...That one may require a 'two-part' review... Hmmm... stay tuned...
Hope everyone is having a great intro to summer... stay safe and have FUN!!!!
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
