Welcome to my blog! I have joined blogspot so I can share things about Ginger Rogers, or maybe other Classic Hollywood things. Besides Ginger Rogers, I love so many other people. But how I became a huge fan was all because of my mom. We were watching So You Think You Can Dance. And saw a couple dancing to swing music. My mom said to me that they reminded her of Fred and Ginger. Of course then I didn't know who any of them were, so I asked her. My mom told me Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were one of the greatest dancers back in the 30's. Then I questioned her if they made any films together. Luckily, my mom had some DVDs of their movies, and she gave them to me. Later that night, I decided to watch one of the films. The very first one I saw was Swing Time. Once I saw Ginger make her entrance, I became a huge fan. When they danced their first dance in the film,(Which is Pick Yourself Up) I saw Fred and Ginger dance for the first time. Throughout the whole movie, I was agape at Ginger's dresses. They were very pretty and cute. Then I stayed up longer and watched Shall We Dance. I thought that was a magnificent film as well. But I just loved her dresses in that film. After watching Top Hat and Follow the Fleet. I wanted to know more about this actress. Although then I didn't know what Ginger's name was, so I had to look at a DVD box. As I read about her, I became interested in Ginger Rogers. After that, I finished watching all the Fred and Ginger films, and started watching films of Ginger. I figured out she wrote an autobiography, so I made my mom buy it. Her book was fantastic after I finished it. Ginger; My Story has become one of my favorite books. Ginger Rogers is THE BEST!!!
