Rare recording of Ginger in Mame resurfaces after all these years

Well, I wasn't expecting it anymore. After all those years, I was starting to believe the negative narrative that such recording didn't exist. Well, once again, the old saying ''Nothing is impossible'' is prove right.

Soon available for trade, a full and restored recording of Ginger Rogers as Mame on Drury Lane (1969). Meanwhile, here's a excerpt.

And what are my plans looking ahead you ask? Well, I declare the hunt for the recording of Ginger in Anything Goes (1980) open!

If you're interested in a trade, let me know!

 Hat Check Girl discuss on Ginger Rogers' IMDb BoardWell, it's official! HAT CHECK GIRL, the long lost Ginger Rogers movie from 1932 has been shown to the public again for the first time since it's commercial release over 80 years ago. It was part of this year selections for the TCM's Film Festival, which was held in L.A. week.
Presenting the movie was MoMA's very own Associate Curator, Mrs. Anne Morra. Mrs. Morra is the good soul behind the restoration of HCG that made this showing possible. 18 months ago, when I started my quest to find a copy of this long lost Ginger Rogers movie I found a 35mm master print safely tucked away in Mrs. Morra's museum. When I approached Mrs. Morra, she was kind enough to listen to my arguments and to hear my plea and in a matter of months, she was able to get a restoration project started on the master print. And here we are, only a year later and Hat Check Girl is already hitting the big screen. Another showing of HCG is schedule this fall at the MoMA's film festival ''To Save and Project''
