GingerNews for February 2015...

Hi y'all! Well, it appears there are a few things happening here and there which are quite Gingery in nature during the month of February... Here's a few:
FIRST, this is pretty cool... the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC is featuring Ginger in their February 'Acteurism' series... a quartet of of well-known GingerFilms will have multiple screenings: Top Hat, Follow The Fleet, Stage Door, and Vivacious Lady. here's a few links to the schedules, as well as the 'general overview' of the series, which begins TOMORROW (2/4/15):
MoMA Press Release - Acteurism: Ginger Rogers - February 2015
MoMA Schedule - Acteurism: Ginger Rogers - February 2015
...although these are films we know by heart, it's still a cool experience to see a GingerFilm in public (well, I guess... unfortunately I haven't had the chance...) and perhaps share with others and discover new Gingerologists out there!

SECOND, The TCM Classic Film Festival, from March 26 to March 29, 2015 in Hollywood, will include a 'World Premiere' screening of a restored version of the 'film that saved Warner Brothers', 42nd Street. Here's a link to Festival info:
TCM Classic Film Festival 2015 INFO
...BTW, a pretty cool poster for it above, but a fatal flaw...NO GINGER!!!
...hope some of y'all get to attend...I know the premiere of Hat Check Girl was a great event for those lucky few who got in... the prices for this event are quite steep, at least from Huey's ledger...

THIRD, check this link out... a COOL recent 'caricature' of Ginger from John Fisher...incredible artist! The drawing is from the pic above, one of my fave 'early blonde' GingerPics... be sure to mosey on over there and leave a comment...

FOURTH, here is some interesting prose from Ward McBurney regarding Ginger and Fred's classic 'Top Hat'...  again, comments here and/or there would be of interest...

and FIFTH, THIS site has a nice presentation and info regarding one of Ginger's 'shorts' from 1930, Paramount's 'Office Blues'... including the whole 15-ish minute clip, which is also on youTube - well, it may depend on what day it is regarding YT, so... this site will hopefully have a 'permanent' access to it. 

WELL, that should hold y'all for a few, anyway... I hope to be doing these 'GingerNews' deals at least once a month, just to document Gingery happenings...a lot of things are posted on FaceBook, but dang, things get buried QUICK over there... so, here we are, to be the 'in case you missed it' spot. And I will give credit if anyone finds GingerNews which is ultimately posted... no problem!

And I will also 'transfer' GingerPics collected from FB over here, and just set up a 'pic-post' every now and then...if anything a nice 'backup'...and again, will give credit to whomever unearthed any GingerPic in question... we've got some great 'hunter / gatherers' over there!!!

Hope everyone out there is having a VERY Gingery week!!!

Until next time...
