This is very interesting!!!!


Hi everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!(I know I did!)


I have about three things to point out to you though:(And #3 is the best!)


1. First of all, what is going on with the official GR website??? Nothing has been updated since 12-18-08 about the paperdoll book. I mean, they do have the showtimes updated, but what about everything else!? That website has become so boring now, and for it being "official", why aren't there any "super rare" photos??? They're all photos from GR's book practically.....But you know whatever................


2. Second of all, I've decided to join the club on Hat Check Girl. Seriously that film MUST BE SHOWN!!! I can't believe that TCM hasn't shown it to the die hard fans of GR. So I went ahead and put a comment on the film begging them to play it. Hopefully they will show it someday for us.


3. And last but not least, something very interesting. Today I was searching on google some GR stuff, and came across this:http://sps.k12.mo.us/mann/Photo%20Gallery/Famous%20Missourians/Famous_Missourians.htm.

I think it's very interesting. In Missouri, some school had fourth graders do a awesome project. It was where the kids had to research famous Missourians, and design a poster with pics and saying 3 reasons why they should be voted in The Hall of Fame. And you know what? One girl had chosen.....GINGER ROGERS. When you check out the page, it's the last group under Mrs. Grant's fourth grade class on the left. The girl has blonde hair all curled like GR with a pic of the poster and some items, and movie boxes. When I saw this, I was thinking how lucky they were! I wish the schools could do something like that here.................

  1. ..great stuff, GF11!!! Liked the 'Famous Missourians' deal...
    And I have been harping on the lack of activity on the 'official' Ginger Rogers website for some time...it is basically a 'dormant' site... sad, but true. I just wonder what it would take to 'take over' the responsibilities of that site...it is run by the Church of Christ - Scientist, which Ginger of course was, and most likely left a lot of her 'stuff' to, since she had no children...but it seems like they would do a better job with keeping the site current...

    Also, great job on Hat Check Girl!!! Maybe they will rustle it up for us sooner or later!

  2. I love how so many of the kids picked classic movie stars! I'm pretty sure I had no idea who Jean Harlow was at that age.

  3. The teacher may have had a list of people to pick from... I can't imagine the students thinking up that many people!
