Ginger on TODAY...January 2014
...ultimately, just cool to see our girl in the 'current media', in any capacity... and danged if I haven't seen this pic before! I wish I had a nickel for every GingerPic out there...
Hope y'all are all well out there, and DON'T forget the 'sync' viewing of Barkleys of Broadway over on FaceBook tonight - 9 P.M. Eastern...it's a 'running dialogue' of the film as all participants view it simultaneously... pretty fun stuff!
Until then, hope y'all...

It IS pretty awesome that a year or so Fox released a lot of Ginger's classic films for the studio, which of course Hu purchased... and of course holding out hope that Hat Check Girl will find its way to DVD - although it's SO cool that we at least now know that it not only EXISTS, but has been restored!
Ginger had quite a few of her 'latter' films at the studio, including one of my faves of hers on the 'screwball' side, "Monkey Business", with Cary Grant...BTW, for those of y'all who don't know, Tina Louise named her character on Gilligan's Island after these two...Ginger Grant! Here's those two now - Ginger in a ponytail is so cool...
Maybe Fox will 'revamp' things and get back to airing 'classic' films from their archives... if not, we may just send Rox over there to straighten them out!
Hope y'all are having a great year thus far...

...and one of a, well, NOT as young (but still VERY stunning) Ginger:
Now, on to other issues... FIRST...yes, Top Hat needs a Huey Treatment.... BADLY. I've gotten about a third of the way through the screen caps, and need to pick them back up soon.
HOWEVER, henceforth, it's gonna be pretty tough to get a 'Full Huey Treatment' out for each Ginger Review, since we are now in the 'MaximumGinger' region of her filmography. As a result, I am resuming the 'general reviews' in chronological order, and will work in a 'Huey Treatment' here and there... I LOVE doing them, but... they are time-consuming, y'all... which holds up the 'general reviews', which shouldn't be the case.
SECOND...I have a LOT of GingerPics, y'all...(...no, REALLY!!! :-P ) ...I am ultimately going to sort them out and place them in their appropriate GingrFilm blogs, BUT... I'm gonna need y'all's help on a few pics...as in what film did a particular pic come from...or if it even is CONNECTED to a film...for example, any ideas on this one (which is a FAVE of mine)? It looks 'Mag Doll'-ish, but....not sure...
THIRD... Rolling out NEW features on the blog... One BIG deal is that Hu and the Crew have purchased a new printer / scanner which is pretty bodacious... an extra-large scanning pane allows images larger than 11x17 to be scanned in, which helps out for quite a bit of Gingerbilia documentation...like SUCH...
FOURTH... More POSTS!!!! Even a few Gingery items two or three times a week will keep the blog fresh, informative, and hopefully entertaining for all. This may entail some correlation with FaceBook posts, from myself or from fellow Gingerologists, with their permission, of course... which leads me into the....
FIFTH item... a call for guest Gingerology posters!!!
And...well...that's all I can think of for now, other than the general 'upkeep' of the blog, including 'This Day in Gingerology' - which I am going to expand by searching more stuff, and also by noting (by link) posts from Gingerology past... that should be a hoot of sorts...
SO... a lot to say, but...now I just gotta get to work!!!! :-P
and with all of that... thanks for y'all's support over the years (weird I can actually say that now... time flies, don't it?) ...and, as we sometimes say here...
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
