1935: The song “The Continental”, written by Con Conrad and Herb Magidson, and sung by Ginger in “The Gay Divorcee”, won the very first Best Song Academy Award; the ceremonies were held at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

...GingerFilms List...

...well, it looks like it's time for Hu to make a 'new' list of GingerFilms...
Not sure this will be of interest, but... wondering if any of y'all have something similar... this is the 'Master List' which Hu has used the last 5-6 years with regards to the catalog of GingerFilms - although at this point I'm pretty sure I can roll thru all of these in order... as can most of y'all... But this list has helped out in quite a few GingerEndeavors... such as general availability of GingerFilms, quick reference for blog post info, and also to aide in that perpetual 'GingerQuote' game over on FB...

Looking at it, not sure what some of the highlighting / markups are on there... the only highlight which I can verify is the pink ones, which are the films where I've compiled the actors / actresses Ginger worked with... for the This Day in Gingerology posts...dang, I've still a ways to go in THAT endeavor...

The 'DVD', 'TCM' and 'OOO' in front of each film indicates the form in which I own the given GingerFilm... although I've bought all the DVDs of GingerFilms which are currently available... the 'DNH' stands for 'Do Not Have'...which of course is limited to Hat Check Girl (which is at least in existence, thankfully) and the two 'early shorts' which are generally unaccounted for...
...um... wish SHE would compile a new list for me...

...speaking of which, the order of films here are as compiled by Ginger in her bio... which is the 'gold standard' regarding the order of GingerFilms...even if it is 'technically' incorrect, chronologically... so...THERE!!! Yeah, yeah, IMDb as well as TCM has some differences in the order or release for several of the films (especially in the 1933-1934 timeframe), and are most likely more accurate, but... Ginger... ...supersedes, y'all...

The few words scrawled on this sheet are generally dates when a GingerFilm was airing somewhere... and the most interesting is the 'Ginger 144, Natalie 25' note, which was voting results from the Classic Film Actress contest over at Monte's blog 'All Good Things' from a few years back... sorry, Ms. Wood...

So, time to retire this list and type out a new one... I guess... probbaly will add data here... most notably, need to add Ginger's character names, as well as the running times for each film. Not a bad project to do for the new year...

Well, hope all of y'all had a great Christmas, and any other observance / holiday you observe...

KIG!!!
