Gingery Halloween Poll!!!

Hi, y'all!!!  ...welp, it's been a few since the last post, for whatever reason... but no matter, cause here we are again... with a POLL!!!! It's been a while since we did one of these, so, here goes...a pretty 'simple' one, with only two choices... which generally fit into the theme of the observance of Halloween (sorry, if you don't get an off-day for it, it's NOT a 'holiday'...)

...which Ginger 'suspense' film do you prefer...

THE THIRTEENTH GUEST

...or A SHRIEK IN THE NIGHT?
...generally, the only two 'suspense' films Ginger were in, unless ya wanna count Star Of Midnight, which is more of a mystery... these two are pretty similar, down to having the same 'leading man', Lyle Talbot, who worked pretty well with Ginger... SO, vote early and often (SEE POLL THINGY AT THE TOP RIGHT OF THE PAGE HERE...)...polls close Halloween night...scary, huh? :-)

...still no TopHat caps... yeah, yeah... lots of just...stuff...happening...well, nothing too involved, but... seems like this time of year is busy, and of course with the holiday season cranking up, it will continue to be so... but Hu is gonna keep the Ginger rolling, for sure... remember there's LOTS of Gingerfilms heading our way on TCM in November and December, so...stay tuned!!!

...and, if you aren't on FaceBook yet, roll over there... there's SOOOOOO much Ginger stuff afoot there, it's unreal... see ya there!!!!

KIG, y'all!!!!

  1. Keep up the good work Huey.
    I love both SITN and TTG. Cheaply made movies, but nonetheless entertaining, and of course with a very young Ginger, which makes them special.
