...KittyBinge-ing...

...well, FINALLY got the Kitty Foyle 'overview' done over on the KittyFoyle blog... well, not much text, but... trust me, y'all will dig it!
...this should give you a hint as to the content of the post over there... I love how she kinda pokes her jaw out at the end of this loop...

Well, on to the next pick... this weekend, for sure...

Until then -

KIG!

...JUDAS PRIEST!!!

... no, not the Rob Halford version... the...
KITTY FOYLE version!

GingerBinge summer continues with the apex of Ginger's career, her Academy-Award-winning performance as an office girl from the 'working side' of Philly, Miss Kitty Foyle... folks wonder which GingerFilm is my fave, and, while it's pretty impossible to choose, there's NO way Kitty could EVER be left out of the conversation. Also a bit weird I pulled this one directly after Perfect Strangers, in the sense that Dennis Morgan occurs in each... hmmm....
Most Gingerologists know this film coming and going, but for those newer ones out there, this one is truly one of the 'must-watch' GingerFilms... it's "wall-to-wall Ginger", which in and of itself would put it towards the top of the list, but her work here is perfect... Kitty gets to you pretty quick...

Well, this one has to get the attention it deserves, so... TENTATIVELY, I'm going to get the viewing in tomorrow and update the KittyFoyle blog... should be pretty fun.

As for the future, I have the two young 'uns headed back to school in a week or so, so... the viewings will predictably wane a bit, in favor of homework assistance... hope to keep up as much as possible, and the goal now is to view the rest of the GingerFilms by the end of the year... a reasonable goal, no???

Well, hope everyone out there is having a great summer (or winter, depending upon your spot on the orb), and of course, keeping it GINGERY!!!
