...New GingerBinge Summer film for viewing IS...

...Don't Bet on Love!!!
...this one's special for a few reasons, but PRIMARILY because Ginger is teamed up with her soon to be husband (i.e., Gooberhead #2), Lew Ayres...  Ginger wrote in very glowing terms in her bio that Ayres was her dream man... ...sigh... which makes him all the more a GOOBERHEAD! - sorry... anyway, this is one of the dozen or so films Ginger was a part of in 1933, and, while not a great film, it does give us some interaction between Ginger and Lew, which is interesting, and is, as ALL are, honestly, required Gingerologist viewing...
She is VERY glowing in spots of this film, documenting her love for Ayres... he seems to have that same look... but, as for the film proper... it's a neat little tale, if not very predictable.

Well, I'll write up a few things over on the DBOL blog... and will update this post when THAT post is... posted...

UPDATE: HERE it is...

...and a general FYI - it's a bit much to watch a film AND do the blog 'overviews', so... henceforth on the Summer GingerBinge I may well watch one night, and do the 'overview' stuff the next... just sayin'...

Until next time...

KIG, y'all!!!
