GINGER ROGERS (1911-1995), born Virginia Katherine McMath
Haven't you seen The Major and the Minor (1942)?
This comedy costars Ray Milland. Ginger's real life mom plays her mom at the end.
Watch this and then see these other four films.
Vivacious Lady (1938) This comedy costars Jimmy Stewart. Beula Bondi plays Stewart's mom and is wonderful when she does the Big Apple dance!
I'll Be Seeing You (1944) Costars Joseph Cotton. Ginger plays a convict out on parole, touching story.
Having Wonderful Time (1938) Another comedy which costars Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Ginger goes on vacation, watch for Ann Miller among the campers!
Top Hat (1935) This musical costars Fred Astaire. I love all of the Roger/Astaire movies but this is my favorite one. You can't beat songs like "Cheek to Cheek", "Top Hat", and "White Tie and Tails"! Lucy Ball is the flower shop girl.
