Gingerfan11 is back in business!!!! :D

Well, sorry I haven't been on for AGES! The computer had caught a virus, and then I had to use my mom's IPhone, but that was very hard. So now I am using a laptop! Sorry I'm saying this very late, but hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. For Christmas I got lots of goodies, and most were GR ones. Although I think my most prized present is the huge Barbie doll of her. IT'S SO AWESOME!!!!! Nice collectible too. And the other things are a Films of Ginger Rogers book which has TONS of pics I've never seen before, the Ginger Rogers and the Riddle of the Scarlett Cloak. The original 1942 book that was written by her mother. I read that thing in one day, it kept you on the edge of your seat cause of all the suspense. And of course GR is the main character. Then I got little postcards and that kind of stuff of Gingery things. My mom gave me really pretty vintage earrings, and purses. I love them a lot, the earrings are pink and really cute!!! And that is mainly it.

Also New Years was fun!!! Hopefully 2010 goes smooth. And btw, I heard(from Jwalker) that GR is the star of the month in March!!! I think it's so cool. Even though I've seen all those films, I'd love to watch them. And I can get Professional Sweetheart back on the dvr BECAUSE my MOM had to DELETE it! It was an accident, but she is glad that it is back on now and says she doesn't feel guilty anymore.

Another thing. Have any of you heard of that Broadway play "Backwards and in High Heels"? It was a play back in 2007 that was about Ginger's whole life. Well, now they have it again...only one problem is.....it's only going to be shown in L.A.. ANNOYING!!!!! : ( Hopefully someday I can see it though..........)

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend. But soon I am going to audition for a musical at my school. It's called "Into the Woods". And I'm so nervous. Auditions will be going on Feb.8th and 9th. The song I will sing for auditions is Let Yourself Go. You know, from Follow the Fleet. Ya, but it's just so nerve wrecking!!! I signed up for Feb. 8th at 3:05. Up there with the first few people.... So hopefully I'll get the part I want the most!!!! BTW my birthday is coming up. On Jan. 27th. Can't wait for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. I'm sorry you can't see the play. Maybe someday!! It's neat they have her in March. I just wish they would start coming out with more of her movies here in the US to buy. Yes you made out well during Christmas. I hope you enjoy your birthday. We will have fun:-)

  2. Great to have GingerFan11 back! Hope your rehearsal goes great! Just don't drink any dixie cups of water before you sing! :-) BTW - great pic of VKM! I don;t have that one! dang, you have some great 'sources' for pics! I will try to post some more soon, hopefully you need! And great Christmas stuff! I pretty much did all my VKM shopping in the months before Christmas, via eBay, so by December not much left for me... oh well.

    hmmm...never heard of the 'play of Ginger' - not surprised there is one - and obviously would love to see it...but unless 'L.A.' stands for Lower Alabama, I won't be able to... maybe it will tour and stop in Atlanta or something...

    SCD - you know, it's weird why there are not more Ginger movies available...like Bachelor Mother, Vivacious Lady, In Person, etc... maybe one day Warner (who owns the RKO library) will gather together a collection of the ones not currently available - AND have some special features - I know it is pretty tough to round up 'deleted footage' and such, but there is some out there...

  3. I'm waiting for the day they come out with Vivacious Lady on DVD. Not sure why they can't come out with these movies and only have them in the UK when they are American movies. So frustrating!!



  5. I played The Baker's Wife in Into the Woods in high school! It's one of my favorite musicals, so clever!
    By the way, my blog has moved to silverscreendream.blogspot.com
    Glad to have you back!

  6. Jwalker:THANKS!! My bday was awesome!

    Maggie:Really? That's so neat! My friend is trying out for the Baker's Wife. Yup, I love Into the Woods too!
    Oooh, I'll check it out!
