...GingerFilms List...

...well, it looks like it's time for Hu to make a 'new' list of GingerFilms...
Not sure this will be of interest, but... wondering if any of y'all have something similar... this is the 'Master List' which Hu has used the last 5-6 years with regards to the catalog of GingerFilms - although at this point I'm pretty sure I can roll thru all of these in order... as can most of y'all... But this list has helped out in quite a few GingerEndeavors... such as general availability of GingerFilms, quick reference for blog post info, and also to aide in that perpetual 'GingerQuote' game over on FB...

Looking at it, not sure what some of the highlighting / markups are on there... the only highlight which I can verify is the pink ones, which are the films where I've compiled the actors / actresses Ginger worked with... for the This Day in Gingerology posts...dang, I've still a ways to go in THAT endeavor...

The 'DVD', 'TCM' and 'OOO' in front of each film indicates the form in which I own the given GingerFilm... although I've bought all the DVDs of GingerFilms which are currently available... the 'DNH' stands for 'Do Not Have'...which of course is limited to Hat Check Girl (which is at least in existence, thankfully) and the two 'early shorts' which are generally unaccounted for...
...um... wish SHE would compile a new list for me...

...speaking of which, the order of films here are as compiled by Ginger in her bio... which is the 'gold standard' regarding the order of GingerFilms...even if it is 'technically' incorrect, chronologically... so...THERE!!! Yeah, yeah, IMDb as well as TCM has some differences in the order or release for several of the films (especially in the 1933-1934 timeframe), and are most likely more accurate, but... Ginger... ...supersedes, y'all...

The few words scrawled on this sheet are generally dates when a GingerFilm was airing somewhere... and the most interesting is the 'Ginger 144, Natalie 25' note, which was voting results from the Classic Film Actress contest over at Monte's blog 'All Good Things' from a few years back... sorry, Ms. Wood...

So, time to retire this list and type out a new one... I guess... probbaly will add data here... most notably, need to add Ginger's character names, as well as the running times for each film. Not a bad project to do for the new year...

Well, hope all of y'all had a great Christmas, and any other observance / holiday you observe...

KIG!!!

GingerDecember!

...alright, y'all... what is UP?
...looks like Ginger is tidying up the ol' barn for the Advent Season... of course, every year, we here at Gingerology run thru some Gingery Christmas Films... but to be honest, I don't think we've ever broken down the few GingerFilms which are set during Christmastime, or at least which give the APPEARANCE of such... SO, I'm gonna go down the list and try to remember these films... feel free to call out anything I miss...



The first film chronologically which Ginger is involved with Christmas is Finishing School (of all films!), where she tries to get ...um... Francey there (I can't remember character names, save for Ginger's... for the most part) to go with her back home for the Christmas break... of course, Ms. Dee had OTHER plans...


...well, technically, it KINDA seems like Star of Midnight is sorta during the Yuletide season... Ginger certainly LOOKS all furry and fine here... of course, she needs to snuff out that snipe and rinse out that mimosa vessel... but, even with all the bad stuff here, she STILL is radiant...   ...final analysis, there's really no Christmas-y stuff going on in this film... eh, maybe the title throws me...


...of course, it's all snowy (and sometimes frosty) in Swing Time... no real MENTION of Christmas, but... any snow scene is a candidate... right? Well, unless you're in Nome or something, where it's pretty much all the time snowing...


...Seems like Vernon and Irene were pretty festive... this scene is where they ultimately get hitched, which is sometime in the snowy season... there are a lot of scenes here which are wintery... the 'Fox Trot' demonstration where Ginger has the 'poodle' outfit on is VERY Christmas-like, to me... although not sure what the connection between Christmas and Poodles is...


...OK, Bachelor Mother is a TRUE Christmas film, IMHO... I mean, Polly starts off as a 'Holiday Associate' for the ol' store there... Merlin... and winds up with a very unique present. It's truly one of my fave GingerFilms, even without the Christmas angle...


...Miss Kitty had her ups and downs, and, although it's not too clear as to the 'real time' point of the year, it's snowing quite profusely, so... just kind of SEEMS Christmas-time... the snow globe helps this cause...


...I'll Be Seeing You... perhaps the MOST Christmas-y GingerFilm... of course some pretty heavy issues afoot, but... a hopeful ending... I would have liked to have seen it wrap up after the 'tours of duty' were completed... ...BTW, I've probably said it before, but Spring Bynington is by FAR the best Ginger Mom on film (other than Lela herself, of course...) ...well, she's an Aunt here, but... close enough...

...and, that's all I got... I KNOW I've missed some Christmas scenes from other GingerFilms, but... that's where YOU come in... help me out. y'all...

And with that, we here at Gingerology hope you and yours have a VERY Merry and Joyous Christmas!!! And/or any other observance you partake in at year's end!

Until later...

KIG, y'all!!!
