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:
“My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months”
The Ginger Rogers Show (1961)
And teaches Lucy ‘The Charleston’
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.
Such wonderful pictures and clips! You’ve really captured her sass! Of course, my favorite is the trailer for STAGE DOOR, which really is one of my favorite films. I hope you’ll enjoy my post about Ginger Rogers – not so many pictures as you’ve got, but I hope you’ll find it interesting.
I love all your posts so sure I’ll love this one too! Did you see my The Barkleys of Broadway write-up? This one to Ginger is just a pictorial. She was so amazing tho. Anyway, thanks as always, Margaret!
