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!!!
