Have a VERY Gingery New Year's, y'all!!!




...and thanks for following Gingerology!!! Here are some new (to me, anyway) pics of our girl which I have 'gleaned' from FaceBook entries over the past year... there's just no end to GingerPics, which is just perfect with me!!!

...as to what's ahead in 2014, the biggest news is... it appears that the lone 'lost' GingerFilm has...been FOUND!!!
Yes, not only has "Hat Check Girl" been found to exist, it is also being restored, according to Molly Brown (a.k.a. GingerPeachy). GP actually broke the news a week or so ago over on FaceBook - her blog is "The Trade Corner for Ginger Rogers" .
Now, what happens with the restored copy afterwards is not specifically known... at minimum, the film may be shown at film festivals... maybe a TCM Festival?  Which would be awesome... but of course, the OPTIMUM situation would be to sell the rights to 20th Century-Fox (HCG was a 'Fox Films' production) so they can distribute it as part of their "Cinema Archives" collection (if they could also get a restored copy of 'Broadway Bad' out in this series, life would be REAL good!)  ...anyway, stay tuned for further details regarding HCG and its potential 'access'... I will definitely post updates about it!

...and regarding the future of this blog...to put it in the most emphatic phrasing I can muster: ...it ain't going NOwhere, y'all... ...although there's no doubt that the awesome community of Gingerologists over on FaceBook has 'demanded' a good chunk of the author's time which heretofore was allotted for blogging.
However, there's still a heap to do here at Gingerology!!! I roughly posted an entry a week in 2013, which is a bit below average, but I also made some headway on the GingerFilm Blogs...but lots more work to do on those... and there's lots of topics and 'features' still untouched which I need to get going on here - and we won't even mention the purt near dormant state of the HueyReviews...so, PLEASE stay tuned!!!

...finally, there are a few other things which may be popping up here in 2014, which have not been finalized yet, and may NOT, but... time will tell... again, stay tuned!

Finally, on this last post for 2013, I again wish to thank ALL of y'all who support this blog...hopefully it is of interest, entertainment, and education regarding all things Ginger Rogers... and remember, feedback is MOST welcome!!!

Have a Appy Noo Jeer, Y'all!!!
...and of course, KIG!!!

  2. Thanks, Ron! Hopefully more Gingery goodness is soon to follow... I have a new printer/scanner which I am needing to set up...so, once that is cooking, should be OK -and will allow for more pics, as it is a 'wide format' scanner, which can scan up to 11x17 or even a bit more... LIFE mag pages are now 'fair game' :-)

    Hope all is well with you and yours, and that the holidays were good to ya!!!

    KIG, Ron!!!
