First off, hope y'all had an eventful Groundhawg Day... ...I think we are in good shape here, although it's still around freezing at night...
...still plodding along on Roberta...it's my New Year Resolution to get that out before....whenever. I'm tired of setting a deadline for it... currently I am doing more screen caps.... see, here's the deal... I was cruising along pretty well until I got to Ginger doing "I'll be Hard to Handle"... and 100 screen caps later, I feel a 'reset' is in order... First, the dance scenes will be submitted on another post (or two...or tres), as previous routines have... and another issue is that it really appears I am going to have to 'break' the review text from the 'alternate plot' cap section...so, look for two posts back-to-back...in fact, it's probably how most of the future ones will be presented, as there will be just GOBS of Ginger caps in the future... she's not even IN this one that much, y'all... (I can't even fathom how Kitty Foyle will be, cap-wise... more bytes, please!) but here's a few caps from the Tanka solo for reference:
So, please have patience...these things take time in order to achieve proper execution...
As for Ginger on TV, TCM is firing up their Oscar Month deal, which is ALWAYS a great time to catch (and capture, if possible) some of the overall greatest films ever... it appears like about this time next week will be RKO week, and of course films with Ginger and Fred, as well as Ginger solo, are well represented - please see the page detailing upcoming GingerFilms on TCM...
Also, I have found another source of when Ginger is to be on TV... they include a few channels I am unfamiliar with, but I will update soon and put on the site... for that matter, if there are folks in other parts of the globe who can direct me to a schedule for channels in their region showing GingerFilms, please reply...I'd love to have as much info as possible on here regarding that, in order to inform folks of when and where our girl will be featured Internationally!
Until some time later...hopefully SOONER than later...y'all...
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
