A lucky star's above

I love this photo of Ginger Rogers talking to George Gershwin. I had a tough time finding it, let me tell you. It was one of those photos I could picture in my mind's eye but I couldn't find it anywhere and was beginning to think I'd dreamt it! I finally remembered that I had it in a collection of photos that came with the Fred and Ginger boxed set so I scanned and voila! It's such a cute photo. And, in my opinion, Ginger is totally flirting with George (can you blame her?).

In her autobiography, Ginger: My Story, Ginger Rogers talks about going to a soiree at the Gershwins' and how George told her he'd written "But Not For Me" for her. How amazing would that be?


  1. Ohmygosh! This is so magical! Love it.

  2. ...ladies always fall for musicians... although I think they were 'just friends', so to speak... but I don't think too many dudes she ran across were content with being 'just friends' with her...

    BTW, I've always loved that dress... wonder what color it is? Something tells me the flowers are red, and well, the dress itself is pretty much white, I suppose...

    Thanks for the pic, Sally!!!
