Just looking at Ginger

A very rare, quadruple threat in American cinema would have turned 102 years old today.  I haven’t a clue how to put into words the joy she’s brought to so many through the years by way of her extraordinary talents.  I never tire of watching Ginger Rogers.  As with so much of concerning being a fan of classic films, I am not alone in that.  I am also not a biographer and admit I take very little time in preparing these posts.  But they do come from the heart – it is almost always the image that captures my imagination.  And it is by way of images that I pay tribute to one of our greatest stars today.

To the actress, singer, dancer, comedienne.  To the glamor, tears and laughter.

To Ginger Rogers, a joy to behold – with or without music.

Shines as part of an incredible ensemble in Stage Door:

As Academy Award-winning actress:

As dancer:

“My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months”

On television:

The Ginger Rogers Show (1961)

And teaches Lucy ‘The Charleston’

In character:

They can’t take that away from us.

In a moment’s time so many memories.  This is as much for me as it is for anyone who may happen to stop by for a look.  I hope you enjoy a very special treasure, gliding along the clouds eating her favored ice cream.
