Roberta wins the 'Final Frames' poll!!!

...well, not too surprising... ...after they had just melted everyone with the EPIC 'Smoke' routine, and then the film cuts away to those other folks in the elevator doing something, blah blah, yada yada yada, happily ever after stuff... and THEN returning to the awesome final 'happy dance' that GandF crank out!
But it was interesting that Barkleys didn't scratch at ALL... I thought there were some big fans of that one out there...well, heck, we luv 'em all, right?   Anyway, congrats to Miss Scharwenka and Huck for the poll victory...
----------------------------------------------------------------
...well, it's that time of year again... Monte and friends are cranking up the Fourth Annual Classic Film Actress Tournament, and the field is pretty much wide open this year, as Miss Lombard ran off with it last year...of course, Ginger won it two years back, and Irene Dunne won the inaugural tourney.
SO, y'all go vote!!!! Here's the link to Monte's blog, ALL GOOD THINGS - I'll pin the link to the top of the page here as well....should be fun!!! 
----------------------------------------------------------------
As for Gingerology 'production', hope to be getting a few things up and running soon... my 'true profession' has picked up volume the last week or so, so... unfortunately it may bite into some G-ology time...but I'll try my best to get some posts in... and with that, I think I've hinted at this before, but...
...yes, yes, I know, Miss Rogers, More HueyExcuses... 

 ...as to the GingerFilm reviews...they are still in production, but...the 'Huey Treatments' will probably be a bit more rare...they just take up a good amount of time, and time, as mentioned, has been at a bit of a premium lately... but, I'll add more screencaps to the 'review proper', and maybe throw in a brief 'Huey-fied' scene here and there... so should still hopefully be of interest to all.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Well, that's about it for now...dang, hope folks are hanging in there with ANOTHER round of winter... looks like South Gingerville will be 'spared'...heck, we were at 75 degrees today...but the high tomorrow? only 38... but no precipitation issues, so... cannot complain...now, a LOT of y'all have PLENTY to beef about, unfortunately... dang it!

Stay safe, and until next time...

KIG, y'all!!!
