I don’t know about you, but I believe that everything is just a little bit better with a bit of Ginger sprinkled on it. Of course, in this case, I refer to the glorious Ginger Rogers. This Academy Award winning actress is probably best known for the multiple dance epics that she made with the elegant Fred Astaire. But, ever filled with an eclectic energy, this perky powerhouse actually began her career appearing in a couple of Gothic mystery-thrillers.

thirteenth_guestThe Thirteenth Guest and A Shriek in the Night feature the typical, gutsy work that was the Rogers’ trademark, but as she croons below, follow-up appearances in the terror genre were obviously just not for her!

Until the next time, SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Fred Astaire

The essence of cool suave in an every man’s persona, Fred Astaire lit up dozens of enjoyable musicals for a stretch of over twenty years.

His final role in the film adaptation of Peter Straub’s powerful Ghost Story, meanwhile, saw him adding a nice helping of contemplative sorrow to the spooky proceedings.

Of course, this celluloid ease was put to grand display in The Gay Divorcee, one of the classics that he made with Ginger Rogers, his most notable dancing partner. Cole Porter’s Night and Day may have been sung better by others, but it never looked more grandly elegant.
