Amazing picture of Ginger Rogers ,taken in 1939 at her hilltop Beverly Hills home which she lived in from 1937 till the 1960s.
A lady with a head for heights ! But rather dangerous looking. That’s quite a drop.
A close-up of that photo.
A little safer. She is on the other side of the railing.
And a view of the house today.
My thanks to Peter Bryant for these photos. (Peter is on Twitter at @pmbryant )
I found a few other photos of this home which Ginger had built in 1937. Ginger said the view, high up in Coldwater Canyon, encompassed the entire coast down to Long Beach.
a view of the house, showing its height.
Until recently, I didnt know Ginger had wanted to star in the film version of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN. Or that she had played ‘Annie Oakley’ on stage.
Ginger toured in the musical starting in 1960. One of her costars was Byron Palmer ( whose wife was Georgina Darcy – ‘Miss Torso’ from REAR WINDOW.)
And another poster for the show, with a modern looking Ginger.
One of the summer theatres where Ginger played ( Warwick Musical Theatre) had quite a season. Stars included James Garner, Eve Arden, Howard Keel, Gordon McCrae, Robert Horton.
