...and yet ANOTHER birthday from 1934...

...this time it's Miss Peggy Cornell we place in the spotlight, from the First National / Vitaphone film "Twenty Million Sweethearts", which also starred Dick Powell.

This one's a pretty 'straightforward' tale of a dude coming outta nowhere and becoming a singing sensation, and a fair damsel (...um, that's Ginger, of course) falling for him... then falling away...then back...well, you know how these tales usually wrap up, and most of y'all know this one by heart, anyway...
...this was one of those screencap sequences which resulted in the need for extra network capacity for Gingerology...

This one produced one of my fave GingerTunes, "Out For No Good"... I am apt to break out in tune at any given moment of the day "Baby, what are you out for? Baby what am I in for?" Classic Tune...

Ginger is just INSANELY cute in this one...it's REALLY one the WB Archive folks should take the scrub brushes to... I mean, it's a WB FILM, y'all...git wit it!!! And Ginger with Powell was a pretty cute deal... good thing Joan and Ginger were buds in some capacity...

...you know, 'real' life in 1933-1934 was probably not too fun on a 'day-to-day' basis, but I think if most of us were placed back in that time, we would basically just be bleary-eyed from camping out in theaters for days on end watching all the GingerFilms over and over and over... sounds cool! 

Well, hope all are having a safe weekend, and again, thank you to all who served, and please remember all of those true heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

KIG, y'all!!!
