Gingerfilms...on Freddie's Day on TCM...


Well, TCM is dedicating this Wednesday - August 5, to Ginger's favorite dance partner, Fred Astaire!




...and with that, of course many Ginger and Fred films are being aired that day - in fact ALL of them, except for The Barkleys of Broadway... and not in 'chronological order'.

...so, it may be a good day to crank the DVR up and let it do it's thang all day...  just see the schedule in the 'Ginger on TV' section above...

In addition to Ginger and Fred films, TCM is also airing quite a few of Fred's best 'non-Ginger' films as well, just after 'Shall We Dance' wraps up... "You Were Never Lovelier", with Ginger's VERY lovely distant cousin, Rita Hayworth... "The Band Wagon", with dynamo Cyd Charisse... "silk Stockings", again with Miss CC... and "Royal Wedding" with Jane Powell.

Hope all is well with everyone... I've been a bit busy catching up from work this week, since the vacation the week before... but it's getting 'stabilized' now... kids start back to school in a few weeks... ALWAYS something cooking around here, but... still wanting to pick up the GingerActivity here... as noted in the 'banner message' above, I didn't get to get to Ginger's birth house in Independence... the closest I can say is we stopped at a McDonald's in Independence on the way out for breakfast...
...um, I don't think the one we stopped at was the same one Ginger's at in the pic above... ANYway, KC is a cool area in general, and lots of cool stuff to do there... highly recommend it!

Until then,
KIG, y'all!!!
