...well, it's been a few, y'all... and QUITE a few since we've done a Gingerology Poll... so... let's get right to it, shall we? Remember that the poll 'area' will be at the top right of the site - I'll leave it active for a week or so...

The category: WHAT GINGER AND FRED FILM HAS YOUR FAVORITE 'FINAL FRAMES'? ...now, not the 'final scene' necessarily, but literally the LAST few images you see before this shows up:
well, unless you're viewing the Barkleys, which would be THIS:
ANYWAY... the only real 'criteria' I used in compiling the films involved is that GandF have to be dancing, or just finishing a dance at the very end... that eliminates Rio, Follow The Fleet, Swing Time, Carefree, Castles (yeah, it's a 'infinite dance', which is cool in more ways that one, but it's just... a SAD ending...). SO, we are left with:

The Gay Divorcee


Top Hat

Shall We Dance

and Barkleys of Broadway
...pretty tough! Remember, it's ultimately which one you think is the COOLEST 'final frames' for a given film... I'm not sure which one I'D go with, honestly...they're ALL pretty dang cool!
Well, hope everyone is doing well out there! More Gingery goodness to follow, y'all...
Until then,

    1. perhaps my fave... pretty neat ending as they end up together after the 'break-up'... well, heck, aren't most of them like that? :-)

      Thanks for voting, GP!!!



  2. Yes, I do like Shall We Dance...they're looking at us, the audience! But I like that 'end dance' in Roberta....

    1. SWD is maybe my fave GandF film... my daughter loved it, and watched it over and over...so it's pretty familiar to me... and a cool ending, yes!

      Hope all is well, Ron! Come over to FB and join up with the G-ologists there...there are a DIZZYING array of Ginger pics and info...
