Okay, so today we have Ginger Rogers collection # 3!!! This time we have collectible type of items.
First up we have two boxes of CDs that have Ginger's radio appearances:
Here's the back of them:
I've listened to some and I do say it's really interesting! :)
Next we have these two books:
I've read both, and they are both good. Although, Kitty Foyle at some parts were kinda awkward, I still read it. If you've seen the Ginger film or read her autobiography, you know the whole story. She won an Academy Award for best actress as the role. The book on the right is an awesome book. It's has Ginger as the main character and she tries to figure out a mystery with the cloak. Even though it's a chapter book, there are some neat illustrations on some pages. The interesting thing about the book is this:
It was written by her mother! I thought that was pretty neat. :)
This next piece I actually never used cause I don't dance, but I saw it at the book store, and had to get it:
It has instruction booklet inside with pictures of Ginger and Fred, CD, and attachments to put I guess on your tap shoes.
Here's the next item:
This is a magnet of the film. I bought it at an antique store a few years ago.
These are figures from 1984(I think). They come from avon. I thought they were really neat, but the only sad thing is Fred's cane is broken. You can kinda tell in the pic because it bends slightly.
I really love the next one:
I think these plates were made in the 1970s. All the other info on it is in the pic above.
The next collectible is a pretty awesome addition:
I got this doll as a Christmas gift three years ago. It's so awesome! Unfortunately I don't have the Fred doll because they are really, and I mean REALLY expensive. Was lucky enough to even get this.
The last item I think is one of my MOST prized:
This item I think is one of my favorite, and as I said earlier, MOST prized! I don't know how many of these are left, but I think they are rare and hard to find. It's just neat to have something that's from the ranch.
Hope part 3 was interesting. My next post is going to be about records. It will be shorter than this one since I don't have too many records of Ginger.
If you just saw this, here are links to the other parts:
Until next time, KEEP IT GINGERY!!! :D
