...Happy Gingerween, Y'all...

...well, it's hard to believe that October is dang near over... before you know it, the turkeys will be stringing Christmas lights and dropping the ball  on Saint Valentine's Day... but we're getting ahead of ourselves... let's just focus on the Halloween deal...
...Ginger is chomping at the bit for trick or treat... As a rule, Hu is not really all that 'into' All Hallow's Eve, but it appears that Ginger at least had fun with it, so... that's cool with me.
As to 'Scary Ginger Moments' in film, here are a few I compiled... I'm sure there are more, but late Sunday Night dictates the following as all I could think of...

...Here's a pretty intense scene... from Black Widow... Well, if y'all haven't seen it...


SPOILER ALERT!!!! Gloss over the next few lines past the GIF below if you haven't seen this film!!!



OK, I've alerted y'all who need it... so... skip on down... yeah, that's right...

...well, for those who are left... this scene is really a pretty 'unGingery' one... and pretty scary, at least for the chicky there... ...probably a good argument for you ladies to not wear neck scarves...

-----------------------------------------------

...Next up, a bit 'lighter' scare, but definitely in keeping with modern day 'creepy clown' themes... ...yeah, y'all know where I'm headed with this one... Get yer Yama-Yamas out with Vernon and Irene...
...now, I'm not into clowns, but... Ginger is, as usual, a VERY notable exception... she's so cute here it's painful... in a most exhilarating way, of course...

-----------------------------------------------

NEXT next up... one of the few 'horror / suspense' films Ginger did, this one from The Thirteenth Guest...which is really a bit scary, especially for 1932... I guess...
...yeah, not too big on someone freaking out my girl... grrrr.... 

----------------------------------------------

Well, although Ginger had a few 'damsel in distress' roles, for the most part, she was doling out the pain on others, as in this classic knife-wielding scene from Fifth Avenue Girl...
...somehow, giving Ginger a weapon is kinda like giving Godzilla a BIC lighter... she just doesn't need any more help... ...in other words, she can do bad all by herself...

--------------------------------------------------

...Another case in point, where she goes dawg huntin' in Carefree...
Freddie's having his on Nightmare on Skeet Street in this scene...

---------------------------------------------------

...although, sometimes Ginger can be serene in the face of evil... Oh Men (i.e., gooberhead), Oh Women (i.e., angelic goddess)...
...sigh... Ginger is just... ...so... ...well, y'all know... ....SIIIIGGGHHH.....  OK... onward...

-----------------------------------------------------

Well, honestly, that's about all of them, although this scene from You Said A Mouthful STILL seems pretty 'bloody' to me just at face value...
...it's like Joe E. Brown is saying, "Don't worry, I'll be back to smooch ya again after I go slaughter some more people with my bare hands..." ...you know, just keeping in the spirit of the season, y'all... ...um, alrighty then...

Well, with that, that's that... that it is.

I'm sure I missed a few 'scary / weird' scenes here and there, so please reply with them...

Hope y'all have a great Halloween if you desire... otherwise... just have a good Monday / Tuesday, depending on your global position.

KIG, Y'all!
