Professional Sweetheart turns 80...
The only 'fail' this film has is that they dubbed Ginger's singing spots with another singer, a soprano-type... Norman Foster plays his 'aw shucks' character to nice effect, and the strong supporting cast includes Frank McHugh, Allen Jenkins, Zazu Pitts and Franklin Pangborn.

...hey, where does this one rank in YOUR list? Hopefully y'all have seen it...while there is no 'official' DVD currently available for it, TCM shows it on a fairly regular basis... so hope you get to catch it soon.
As for Hu, I am a bit under the weather, with a sinus infection...of sorts, anyway... cut grass all day and sucked in too much dust and other niceties, so... but I'm medicating, eating hot salsa and other stuff to get things shook up in the snoot... it usually gets knocked out overnight (I'll sleep sitting up on the couch, tho...) ...all that to say, this will delay the HueyTreatment of SOM a bit... but hopefully not too much.
In the meantime, hope y'all are having a splindiferous weekend, and remembering to...
Keep It Gingery!!!
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
