To Ginger Rogers' 100th birthday!
I want to show my appreciation for her by spamming this blog with loads of Ginger-related posts on that day (which is July 16th) and reviewing (of course) one of her movies. But this time, no Fred Astaire involved! I've been planning to watch the film that gained her her very first and only Academy Award win for Best Actress, Kitty Foyle (1940). In fact, the movie was also nominated for Best Picture, though it lost to Rebecca. I expect this to be quite a film, and I just can't wait to see Ginger act a more dramatic role, compared to the usually light and comedic roles she did with RKO Pictures and Fred. This might change the way I look at Ginger as an actress... in a much better way!
