Archive Post #1 - from Gingerology - originally posted April 18, 2012

Romance In Manhattan now on WB Archives...

...a new offering from the great folks at Warner Brothers Archives - "Romance In Manhattan" - one of Ginger's seven films from 1934 - it is 'sandwiched' between 'The Gay Divorcee' and 'Roberta'.

Here's the link for purchasing:

Romance In Manhattan at WB Archive

From what I remember (it's been a few since I watched this one), it is a pretty nice little film - nothing too elaborate - dude is an immigrant who is trying to survive in NYC - Ginger is a chorus girl who takes him in, adding to her load, as she is already taking care of her younger brother. Ginger is the 'top billed' in this one, and is in it a pretty good bit. Probably worth the price for you G-ologists out there who don't already have it. Honestly, I've not seen this one 'in rotation' on TCM, so it's a pretty good offering.

Stay tuned for more Gingery goodness to follow...

Until then, KIG!



  1. I saw that it was on their shop earlier this afternoon, and I was happy. I really liked Romance In Manhattan. I just have the VHS but probably will eventually want to get the dvd.

    It's nice that more of Ginger's films are being released, but there are still MORE out there!

  2. Well, let's just say I have a copy of it... :-) but yes, I will definitely purchase it - I buy each of the WB Archives that are released with Ginger... but WHERE'S Vivacious Lady, In Person, Star of Midnight, and my latest review, 20MilSws?
    Oh well, in good time... I'm STILL waiting for that '4-in-1' set for Ginger...dang, they've had 2 of those for Kate! arghhh!

    OK - well, anyway...

    KIG, Arianna!


  3. Vivacious Lady is available in Europe, thats how i got my dvd copy so am surprised its not out in the US, then again its happened with other of her movies... There's a Ginger boxset in the UK also!

  4. Yes those films SHOULD be already out here by now, but sadly not. :/ Although it's not just those, we still have her early films and later ones to get released.

    I was thinking the same thing about the 4-in-1 boxset. I got both sets for the Ginger and Fred musicals, but Ginger needs to have HER OWN boxset.

    But someday, someday these films will eventually be available. :)
