...Happy GingerFall, Y'all!

...well, I prefer to say 'Autumn', but... doesn't really sound the same when Ginger is before it!
...ah, Miss Rogers is dressed for the approaching season in grand fashion, as usual!!!

...hope everyone is doing well out there... a few things here and there to note...

FIRST...Arianna has informed me that, after a LONG wait, one of Ginger's most beloved 'non-Fred' films is FINALLY making it to DVD...WB Archives has released 'Vivacious Lady', Ginger's only film with James Stewart as her leading man...
...for those who haven't seen it...it's MANDATORY...trust me. a bit 'goofy' in places, but hey, it's a 'screwball comedy'! Here's the link to WB Archives: Vivacious Lady on DVD - WB Archives 

SECOND...Monty's 2013 Lombard Cup is WELL under way...hope y'all have been participating in it...if not, well...NOW would be a good time, as our girl's number has been chosen... Ginger is up against Esther Williams, who is pretty awesome.... but in the wrong place at the wrong time, unfortunately... HERE'S the link to Monty's site, which ultimately links ya over to Kristen's blog, Journeys In Classic film (see the end of Monty's post...or heck, just click HERE ...doesn't appear to be 'set' yet, as of this posting...)
...hey, Ginger swam a good bit, too, ya'll!!! 
...but with that, I think everyone knows that Esther has no equal in aquatic acrobatics/pyrotechnics, of course :-)

Happy voting, y'all!

THIRD...as of yet, still haven't gotten around to making screencaps from TopHat... but hopefully soon... VERY soon... stay tuned... once I get time to crank them out, it goes pretty fast...

FOURTH...With that, the 'FilmJam' deal for 'The Major and The Minor' was pretty neat, even though I was only around for the last ten minutes or so... hope you got to join in!
And if not, or if you aren't 'in' with the FaceBook Gingerologist 'community', well..ya NEED to be! Pretty incredible stuff there... I find it hard to keep up at times, which I never thought I'd say regarding Ginger!!! :-)

FIFTH...and LAST...I think... I'm actually 'road trippin' to...Atlantic City, of all places...a work deal... will be out a week from today (9/29) and will be back Friday (10/4)... just a programming note, as it were... wonder if there's any Ginger connection up there? I feel pretty sure she passed through there a time or two back in the day... heck, probably had some of her stage shows set up there, I reckon...

SO, until then...

KIG, y'all!
