  5. We lost so many great people this year. One of my absolute favorite actresses, Anita Page, just passed away this September. I'm happy TCM included her in the tribute, but it just makes me so sad to see it. I think I can only handle seeing it once, it's so sad and depressing. We've been losing classic stars left and right lately, it seems.
  6. Hi there, everybody! I'm new around here, and just thought I'd make a quick introduction. I'm a teenager and I love classic movies. I watch tCM almost everyday. My favorite movie stars are: Jimmy Stewart, Ginger Rogers, Anita Page, Fred Astaire, Myrna Loy, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, James Cagney, Donna Reed, Grace Kelly, Humphrey Bogart, and so many more. This list could go on and on, but I said I'd make this short, and you'll find out more of my favorites from my posts. This looks like a swell place and I look forward to start posting more and chatting with you folks around here. I'm glad to be here.

  10. Has anyone seen this film? It was made in 1931 and stars two of my favorite actors of all time, Anita Page & Buster Keaton. I just saw it, and personally, I loved it! It was absolutely hilarious. I've read that many people consider this to be Buster's worst movie, but I can't understand why. I know MGM ruined his career and most of his films made there aren't his best, but this one (& Free And Easy) I really liked. But I did like this one more then I liked Free And Easy. I guess I just love seeing Anita & Buster together. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? What did you think of the movie? Also, Sidewalks of New York is going to be playing on TCM December 2, 2008 as part of their full-day tribute to Anita Page. -GRF

I LOVE Miss Ginger! > > I don't even know how MANY of her films I have seen! > > I think my fave would have to be *"Once Upon A Honeymoon"* , but I also adore her pairings with Fred. And I love her early musicals. And *"The Major And The Minor"* was too, too funny! Also, I loved *"Roxie Hart"* She was excellent at drama, but genius at comedy! > Once Upon A Honeymoon is a great movie! Ginger had such great chemistry with Cary Grant. The Major And The Minor is SUCH a funny movie! I love it. Roxie Hart is really good, too. ALL of Ginger's films are good. Heehee. Her movies with Fred are brillant. Ginger could play any genre wonderfully. She was THAT amazing! > Sadly all my library carries anymore of her are: The Fred musicals, the Busby Berkley's, *"The Major And The Minor"* , *"Stage Door"* , and *"Monkey Business"* hardly a full collection...considering what they used to have! > Oh you must try and see Monkey Business if you haven't yet. That one is amazing. It's so so funny! > I will have to say when I watched both *"Gold Diggers..."* and *"42nd Street"* I lived for Ginger's parts. Compared to her everyone else was BORING! > I like Gold Diggers of 1933 and 42nd Street. But I admit I probably wouldn't have watched them if Ginger hadn't benn in them. > > > -ILRM > > *P.S. What did you think of "Kitty Foyle"* ? I really like Kitty Foyle. Ginger certainly deserved her Best Actress Oscar for that picture. She clearly earned it. The part was perfect for her. I think the movie has all the right elements in it to make a great movie-- drama, romance, and a touch of comedy. Plus a great cast and director. I'd recommend it. -GRF *Nikkymo* -- Thank you for the welcome! Your Grandmother must have great taste in movies, since she recommened Ginger to you. You're so right, Ginger is magic! That scene in Vivacious Lady is sooooo funny! You don't want to mess with Ginger! LOL! -GRF Message was edited by: GingerRogersFan

  13. > {quote:title=Nathan_Dodge wrote:}{quote} > I'm a relative newcomer in my adoration for Ginger Rogers, but when TCM showcased her in the 2006 Summer Under the Stars, I fell in love after seeing Ginger in *Stage Door* and *Weekend At the Waldorf*. After that, she became my favorite actress of the era. I'm still waiting on a Weekend At the Waldorf DVD release! I love her timelessness and unmannered performances which are always fresh. Plus, she looks like my wife! Weekend At The Waldorf definitely screams for a DVD release. I love that picture! And I agree with everything you said about Ginger-- her performances are timeless and still just as fresh as if they were being made today.
  14. Ohh what a great thread! I adore looking at all of the lovely photos!
  15. No problem. I love them, too! They made a really adorable couple.
  16. MissMusical-- In her autobiography, Ginger said that she was asked to be in His Girl Friday. I certainly would have loved to see her play the part! Thanks JackFavell! Ginger & Lew divorced because he started drinking, I'm not sure it was to the point of an alcoholic or not, but he did start drinking and going to parties a lot, something Ginger never did. She didn't drink at all and I suppose she divorced him because he started drinking too much for her liking and because he was never around much. She said she regretted it though, and wished she would have worked harder at their marriage because she really loved him. They seperated in 1936 but Ginger didn't file for divorce until 1940, and they weren't officially divorced until 1941.
  17. I absolutely love Bachelor Mother! It's one of my favorite movies. It's really funny and cute. I love the part where Ginger & David Niven go to the New Year's Eve party and Ginger trys to speak Sweedish! And at the beginning when Ginger is at the dance. I could watch her dance all day and never get bored.
  18. Yes, I wish the owner would share them with TCM as well. There many early films of Ginger Rogers' that I would love to see. Also many Anita Page movies I wish could be shown on TCM. Maybe someday...let's hope.
  19. Ginger is my favorite actress! I just love her. It's almost impossible for me to choose a favorite movie, but my top three are probably Swing Time, Rafter Romance, and Black Widow. To jump in on the Vivacious Lady discussion, I absolutely adore that movie! Ginger is great in it as usual, and she had great chemistry with Jimmy Stewart. There's some really funny parts, too. It's an all-around nice picture. -GRF
