    Ginger Rogers

    Recently I have become interested in the life of Gonger Rogers.Hoping to get her autobiography shortly.I think her name deserves a mention in this forum.Was looking to get a contact email for Robrta Olden ,Gingers assistant.

    She made some classic movies for old movie buffs like me she is of course mostly remembered for her films with Fred Astaire, But did great work without him in 'Bachelor Mother' and 'Kitty Foyle' (For which she won an Oscar)

    I think people like Ginger/Fred and Gene Kelly are kind of forgotten these days, unfortnately.
    The survival of everyone on board depends on just one thing: finding someone on board who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner.

    Hey, Gene Kelly will NEVER be forgotten amongst movielovers. I mean ' An Amercan in Paris and 'Singin' in the rain' are embedden in movie history forever, And I'd rather F**k him than Fred, Though I love them both. I also wanna forgive my bad english since I am from Sweden

    Thanks to a program at the University of Connecticut, I was able to spend half a year at the University of Lund back in the 80s. Yes, I love ABBA


    ...and Carola and Roxette...


    "Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels."

    Yea!

    Well, ABBA is ok but Carola and Roxette is pure crap and a big shame to anyone who enjoys good music

    Aw, c'mon! Carola's Livets Ord is utter crap but her voice is good. Right now, I love the soon-to-be-a-threadliner on the findadeath forum: Amy Winehouse. She's a Barbara Payton in the making but with more talent.

    I agree that Carolas voice is great, but if she don't have the brains to bring it to good use then she is pure crap.

    I saw Follow the Fleet earlier this year. And after seeing Ginger Rogers in a short black skirt, I can tell you that I will never forget her. To say nothing of her awesome performance in Carefree:

    The best part: she liked fishing and was a good shot.

    I mean, what was there not to like?

    Agree, fortunately i believe that artist like Gene never will forgotten as long as there are some people left in this world that get a kick out of watching those wonderful and timeless films.
    Long live to Old Hollywood!

    Like the old saying goes, Ginger did everything Fred did, only backwards and in heels!! That took a lot of talent.

    My daughter had to a biography on Ginger, and had to dress as her part...... I was not happy putting ruby red lips, a glamour dress and a blonde wig on her. LOL Ginger was an amazing woman, and so beautiful.

    Unfortunately, Ms Rogers had a lot of hair on her face and needed lots of makeup to cover it. Judy Garland was fired - no one says why - from a movie staring Ginger. Judy sent Ginger a huge shaving mug, accompanied by a note saying good luck.

    Ah! Stage Door. Great film with a beautiful Lucille Ball as the icing on the cake. Kate Hepburn and Ginger Rogers were fabulous.

    She was here in the early 90s, promoting / signing copies of her bio. Her rudeness to the staff and general hatefulness are legendary among those at the bookstore who had to deal with her.
    I hate to think of her being this way, so in my own mind I've constructed a scenario whereby she was elderly and probably not feeling well. Most authors say that book tours can be very difficult, Ginger probably was just not really up to it.
    LOVED her in the old Busby Berkeley musicals (she was kinda chunky then and SO cute)!!

    I just was reading about all the hair on her face, I guess they didn't have the technology of today for hair removal!! LOL
