I just finished Ginger's autobiography. What a sweet and fascinating lady. I'm working my way through interviews of hers on YouTube and also her non Fred movies. Watched Storm Warning last week. Loved it. I want to see more of her dramas.

Do they have any other Ginger/Mame numbers on youtube?

Her "Mame" number is up, from a Royal Command Performance.

Ginger also did That's How Young I Feel on The Dean Martin Show.



Supposedly there was a London Cast Recording made of Mame, but Ginger exercised a clause in her contract that if she wasn't happy with her vocals, they couldn't release it. Although we all know how unreliable Mame rumors can be.

I actually saw Ginger in "Hello Dolly"!   I badgered my mother to take me to Portland for a matinee and bought the TOP TIER ticket priced at $5!  ($36 in today's dollars. My, how times have changed.)

What I remember (it's been so long ago) is that when Ginger/Dolly sat down at the restaurant, a waiter pulled the chair out from under her and in split-second timing put the chair back just as Ginger sat.  It got a big laugh and Ginger broke character and said to the audience "I'm just as surprised as you are!".   Obviously this was planned.  

Ginger owned property in southern Oregon on the Rogue River and in her curtain speech mentioned that she was a fellow Oregonian. 

I mentioned this to Carole Cook who got a sour look on her face.  Apparently on the LA leg of the tour, Ginger's contract allowed her 2 weeks off.  When she found out Carole was going to take her place, she didn't take her vacation, preventing Carole from wowing them in LA like she did all over Australia for TWO YEARS.

I heard she had excellent timing in the dumplinging earing scene from some who saw her on Bway.

As for the LA portion do you think it was more about giving the fans in LA a chance to see her during a big city run and maybe not a slight to Carole, which seems how Carole took it.
