In Rememberance...

...of Miss Ginger Rogers, who left us nineteen years ago this day...
Always a rough day on the Gingerologist's calendar, but as always, this time should really be spent viewing your fave GingerFilm (or two), listening to some GingerTunes, and in general just remembering the lady and her legacy, and what it means to all of us...
...and I also take this time to SINCERELY thank all of you for following Gingerology...I wonder what Ginger would think about the blog, and all our voraciousness for GingerInfo over on FaceBook... I kinda like to think she would jump in there with us every once in awhile and set us straight about dates and times, and fill us in on details... wouldn't that be COOL?

Hope to have some things posted in the near future, and the Stage Door post is nearing as well...

Until then,

KIG...

  1. It isn't easy to write about the anniversary of the passing of a star you admire; I go through the same situation every Jan. 16. However, I sense both Ginger and Carole would be thrilled that their legacies continue to inspire people decades after leaving us. It's part of the beauty of film, recordings, photographs and other media that such people never really are gone.

    On a less philosophical note...the magazine Screenland now is part of the Media History Digital Library, and while doing some Lombard research regarding her presence in that fan mag in 1930, I found a bonus article you may not be aware of, so I felt obliged to share it with you. It's at the close of http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/689680.html.

    1. Thanks, VP! I'll go check that article out. It's been a bit melancholy today, but at least it's Friday... and it IS more of a 'remembrance' for us, in just how these ladies have touched us with their awesome collection of work...

      KIG and KIC!!!
