GingerTrivia!!! Topic: Varmints in GingerFilms...

...well, first off, this is Gingerology post #350! Not sure of the significance of that, but...just an FYI...of course, thank to all who have kept up with G-ology over time... this post will hopefully be one of many more, at a more frequent rate... and BTW, this pic above of Ginger walking a large feline varmint is just SO cool...

...and with that, the topic proper is... Trivia questions regarding GingerFilms which have animals in them! Ready? OK, then!

Question #1: What was the name of the 'main monkey' in the film "Monkey Business" who mixed the 'magic elixir'?


Question #2: In the film "Shall We Dance", how many dogs was Petrov (Fred) walking simultaneously when he was trying to impress Linda (Ginger) on the ship's deck?


Question #3: What kind of varmint was the 'court reporter' in the 'Jenny dream sequence' from the film "Lady In The Dark?"


Question #4: What was the name of the monkey who tried to help Huck out with Sherry in the film "Follow The Fleet?"


Question #5: In Ginger's opening scene in the film "Fifth Avenue Girl" as Mary Gray, she asked Mr Borden if he had a  ?????  in his pocket...


Question #6: What was the name of Anytime Annie's doggie in the film "42nd Street?"


Question #7: What movie sees Ginger's first appearance in bed, being awakened by a phone call, and panning over to another bed with a doggie on it?


Question #8: What varmint-related item was Rose Gilray (Ginger) trying to sell in the film "The First Traveling Saleslady?"


Question #9: How did Ben Castle (Jack Carson) mount his horse in the film "The Groom Wore Spurs?"


Question #10: In the film "I'll Be Seeing You", what type of dog attacked Zac Morgan (Joseph Cotten)?


Question #11: We all know about Ginger's ostrich feather dress from the film "Top Hat"; but what earlier GingerFilm saw her using an ostrich feather fan to GREAT effect?


Question #12: What was the name that Irene (Ginger) gave to the doggie that brought her and Vernon together in the film "The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle?"

GingerNovember...

...is dang near OVAH!!!

This month has flown by... and a late Thanksgiving means an early Christmas... so lotsa stuff going on for all of us. Still hoping to get back into a 'regular deal' regarding posting... a few things are 'pending', so we'll see...

BUT, there's at least time for a few GingerNotes, right?

...first off, it's been a bit too cold for mid-November, y'all... Ginger has her furs already in heavy rotation, so no worries there... BTW, this is SUCH a cool pic...Ginger is so 'fresh' looking! Just perfect! Hope all of y'all who have ALREADY had heaps of snow are hanging in there... looks like a long winter, unfortunately...



Well, with Turkey Day fast approaching (as noted perfectly by Ginger at the '58 Macy's Parade...), guess the big question is, "what am I THANKFUL for?" Well, there's been quite a few good things this year for Hu, with the biggest being a successful eye surgery for a detached retina... left untreated would have resulted in losing sight... but it's great now! Still a bit of 'distortion', but will have to get new glasses soon... I have one more 'check' by the surgeon in January to make sure all is well, then get fitted for new 'cheaters'... I will probably forgo contact lenses at this station in life...have been hearing some bad stuff about them lately, anyway. and of course, family and friends are VERY much on Hu's 'thanks' list...which of course includes Gingerologists... y'all are the GREATEST!!!

...HEY! Hu FINALLY ordered all the GingerFilms which have been released on DVD this year... 'You Said a Mouthful', 'Magnificent Doll', 'Forever Female', and 'Cinderella'... so HoHoHoToHu! :-)

yupyupyup... sheer awesomeness!

...well, hope all is well with everyone out there - of course I will yak with most of y'all on FB... if not, you REALLY need to get hooked up over there, as there is pretty much an unlimited supply of Gingery Goodness happening perpetually... which is AWESOME!

Oh yeah, just a few days left on the 'hair color' poll...looks like 'non-blonde' has gotten quite a bit more love this go-round, but blonde is tough to beat... if you haven't yet...go VOTE!!!

Until later...

KIG, y'all!!!
