I goofed and let my Now Playing subscription lapse after the January issue. While I wasn’t too upset missing out on February’s Oscar month guide from TCM, I was really hoping I’d receive the March issue in time to mark it up. Well, now I’m holding out for April.
The schedule on TCM’s website is great, but I can’t circle the movies I'm interested in without printing out a ream of paper and perusing the entire Guide, so this post is for me as much as it’s for you. March 10 kicks off the first of four Wednesdays featuring programming centered around TCM’s Star of the Month for March, Ginger Rogers. Since I’m a Ginger fan I’m going to lay out TCM’s schedule for each of the four nights below just so I have it all in one space.
And to spruce it up some I’m going to illustrate the page with a whole bunch of vintage movie cards and collectibles featuring Ginger Rogers.
There’s a Ginger Rogers profile by Susan M. Kelly over on the main site and if you’d like to shop for any cards and collectibles like those on this page here’s a link to a Ginger Rogers search in my eBay Store. Ginger sells well, but there were a handful of items left when I posted this and I’m always adding more.
Note: Many of the movie cards shown below will take you to a more complete Photo ID Guide focusing on the specific collectible pictured. For those which I haven’t created guides for yet hovering over the image should tell you exactly what it is.
