A little Ginger

Another centenary today - the original icon of glamorous Hollywood during the Great Depression, Miss Ginger Rogers!

By all accounts in real life a complete bitch - she always maintained a fanatical Republicanism, and informed on numerous fellow stars and individuals in the movie industry to the MacCarthy anti-Communist witch hunts - she nevertheless was a radiant figure on that silver screen...

Now if THAT doesn't cheer us up on a wet Saturday, I don't know what will!

  1. Justin Vivian Bond's new book, written about his young teenage years (and fantastic from what he read at his recent show) is titled Tango, backwards and in heels after a quote by Ginger Rogers.

    Justin V Bond would be great for a future Polari.
