...Thoughts and Prayers...
This Day in GINGEROLOGY - December 3rd
1910: Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science (which Ginger practiced), died in Newton, Massachusetts, at the age of 89. Lela Owens McMath was approximately a few weeks into her pregnancy which would ultimately result in the birth of Virginia Katherine McMath on July 16th, 1911.1965: Ginger is crowned “Miss Ziegfeld 1966” (by MZ 1965 Julie Newmar) at the 28th Anniversary dinner of the Ziegfeld Club Charity Ball.
Next GingerFilm(s) (on TCM - all times Eastern):
December 13, 2016 @ 1:15 A.M. Bachelor Mother (82 min)
Next GingerFilm(s) (on FXM Retro - all times Eastern) - NOTE - the FXM Retro site is kinda 'cryptic' as far as specific times, so please check local listings for 'specific times':
...None currently scheduled...
Next GingerFilm(s) (on GetTV - all times Eastern):None Currently Scheduled...Honestly, this channel is 'morphing' into a 'Nick at Nite / TVland' type deal... lots of Westerns and series from the 60's and 70's... which is fine, but less and less films being shown... so... this 'item' may well just fade out...I'll still check their schedule each month, but nothing in November... they DO show Merv Griffin specials, among other 'variety show' events, so maybe Ginger will turn up on some of those...

...GingerPoll Time, y'all!!!!
Hu is in the house, and is ACTIVELY working on the 'Roberta' review this weekend! ...still a bit to do, but...it's getting there!
With that, after 'review' of the movie, I got to thinking...of course as far as HueyReviews go, there's the ultimate 'Rankings Board' for the films...and, since the 'level' of GandF in Roberta is somewhat comprable to 'Rio', save for a few more dance routines, I got to thinking... which is the more 'Gingery' character, Honey Hale or Tanka Scharwenka? Well, of course, I couldn't choose between these two, as I would gladly tote a fully loaded steamer trunk across Grand Central Station for either of them... although Ms. Hale had a lot more 'trouble' with those trunks, if memory serves... :-]
Anyway, since this is a new year (BTW, Happy Twenty-Thirteen, y'all!!!), what better way to kick it off than with a GingerPoll - which has been awhile since we've done one, so...
The Question at hand: Which character is more 'Gingery'...
Yeah, it's pretty tough, but... well, y'all can be pretty opinionated at times, so...have at it!!! The poll is at the top of the blog for your use!!!
Be sure to comment as to your reasoning behind your vote...we stress accountability here at G-ology!!! ...or at least some modicum of protocol... however you go about THAT...
Y'all keep it Gingery, now...y'hear?
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
