...the Roberta files have been moved...

...to the Roberta blogsite!!!
...mainly, the review and the 'Huey Treatment', as well as ALL of the screencaps... ...400+ screencaps... ...yes, that's right... ...so... ...check them out on the site HERE .
...told ya you'll be seeing this one again!  :-)

...as for the 'filmblogs' in general, I'm in the (long) process of setting up info on all of them, which will hopefully once 'established' will be of benefit to all... it is a time-consuming process, since any one 'feature' on a blog has to be replicated 75 times or so, but is 'unique' to the specific film... but hey, it's Ginger, so... nothing but good things, right?

...speaking of good things, congrats are in order to the Lombardians....as their girl (and my fave this year as well) won the 2013 Classic Movie Actress tournament in convincing fashion over Bette Davis... Carole and Ginger were buds to some degree, anyway, and I know they both enjoyed tennis, so something tells me they played a bit when they could.

Hope everyone is having a nice April thus far... so far, so good here...just pollen up everyone's snoot here in South Gingerville, but... we'll survive...

Until then,

KIG, y'all!!!



  1. I was just checking out the Roberta page. That is a lot of fun. How did you manage to decide which screen caps to use in your treatment with so many!!! You made it very tough on yourself ;)
    I don't know if you want to add this Roberta poster to your collection.
    It looks like it is a variation of one you already have.

    Nice work (and oh what a lot of work!) on the Roberta page. It makes it a lot easier to KIG!

  2. ...thanks for the poster/lobby card pic! It will find its way over there, for sure!!! :-)

    Screen caps are great... even with a bunch, they are fun to run thru. speaking of which, it's on to Star of Midnight... along with lots of other ideas I want to kick around, post-wise...

    And, have been on FB a bit the last few nights...kind fun when 3-4 of us G-ologists start 'chatting'...ya should go in there and join up! Of course, you could be like me, in that... I'm only in it for the Ginger!!! speaking of which...

    KIG, 'e'!!!


  3. Thanks for your support in the 2013 FCMAT!

    1. no problem at ALL, VP!!! Carole is MORE than worthy!!! Glad I 'caught' you on here, as I have a question (which somehow I feel I've asked before, but... you know, middle-age and everything going on for Hu...) - HOW can one comment over on Carole and Co.? I've tried quite a few times but to no avail... which usually indicates 'operator error! Any info is fine...or if you just don;t allow comments, that's fine as well...

      Congrats again! Nice to have both of our lovely ladies in the winner's circle!!! And Irene isn't bad at all, either!!! :-)

      KIG, and Carole-y!!!


  4. To comment, I believe you have to become a Live Journal member (it is free, and you're under no further obligation). We also have a backup site at WordPress, http://caroleandco.wordpress.com.

    1. Will do... I need to get 'on' more of the 'media' formats... well, at least I have somewhat figured out FaceBook!

      thanks for the info, VP!

      KIG...and Carol-ey!!!
