This Day in GINGEROLOGY - April 21st

1926: Ginger appeared on the stage of Hunt’s Craterian Theater (‘Craterian’ is a ‘play’ on the phrase ‘Criterion’ for theaters of the 20’s – nearby Crater Lake inspired the ‘unique spelling’) in Medford, Oregon, during her six-month tour as the winner of the Texas State Charleston Champion; today, the theatre (well, the stage, anyway… grrr…) bears her name, after she became a resident of the Rogue Valley area in which it is located.

1940: Richard Robles, who starred with Ginger in the film “Flying Down to Rio” (as Lackey), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 37.

1973: Merian C. Cooper (born Merian Caldwell Cooper), who produced the Ginger films “Professional Sweetheart”, “Rafter Romance”, “Chance at Heaven”, “Flying Down to Rio”, and “Finishing School”, died in San Diego, California, at the age of 79.

1975: Rex Moore, who starred with Ginger in the film “Flying Down to Rio” (as Dancer), died in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 75.

...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!!!
