This Day in GINGEROLOGY - April 21st

1926: Ginger appeared on the stage of Hunt’s Craterian Theater (‘Craterian’ is a ‘play’ on the phrase ‘Criterion’ for theaters of the 20’s – nearby Crater Lake inspired the ‘unique spelling’) in Medford, Oregon, during her six-month tour as the winner of the Texas State Charleston Champion; today, the theatre (well, the stage, anyway… grrr…) bears her name, after she became a resident of the Rogue Valley area in which it is located.

1940: Richard Robles, who starred with Ginger in the film “Flying Down to Rio” (as Lackey), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 37.

1973: Merian C. Cooper (born Merian Caldwell Cooper), who produced the Ginger films “Professional Sweetheart”, “Rafter Romance”, “Chance at Heaven”, “Flying Down to Rio”, and “Finishing School”, died in San Diego, California, at the age of 79.

1975: Rex Moore, who starred with Ginger in the film “Flying Down to Rio” (as Dancer), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 75.

1982: Joe Sawyer (born Joseph Sauers), who starred with Ginger in the film “Campus Sweethearts” (as unnamed character), died in Ashland, Oregon, at the age of 75.

POLL TIME!!!

...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



Roberta






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,
KIG!!!
