Greetings from VKMfanHuey!!!
Welcome to the Gingerology blog for the 1946 Universal film, Magnificent Doll!!!
Ginger plays the role of First Lady Dolley Madison, married to President James Madison (Burgess Meredith). Before her eventual marriage to Mr. Madison, she is subject to an 'arranged marriage' at a young age, and later is courted by Senator Aaron Burr (David Niven), who has grandiose ideas about how the country should be run...
Please note the 'menu' above, which has various information regarding the film; to the right (just below the Gingerology link) there are additional links regarding the film.
Please feel free to leave a comment with any general info, links, pics, or just to say hi!
...And be sure to check out our 'main' site, Gingerology - just click on the Ginger pic to the right. There you'll find a list of ALL of Ginger Rogers' films; click on any one, and you will be directed to a 'dedicated' blog about that film (not unlike this blog).
Keep It Gingery, y'all!

...First, and foremost... this movie... is the APEX of Ginger 'facetime'... this film captures Ginger at her most radiant, and has SO many incredible close-ups, that... it may well be my favorite in terms of "wall-to-wall GINGER!!!" As proof, I present Exhibit A-11A, which is a true murder's row of Screen Captured Ginger Perfection...
OK... well... the movie itself is quite entertaining, although not sure of how historically accurate it is... I guess we need some FactCheck stuff for this one... but it is a relatively fast-paced film which has some 'love interest' stuff interwoven into it (one of the earlier reviews I did noted there wasn't much 'romance' in the film, but... guess I was totally focusing on GINGER, and not the storyline...)
Well, that's it... I'm going to zonk out... but this film is HEARTILY recommended, and is a TOTAL MUST for any Gingerologist... It is available on DVD - check out Amazon or Movies Unlimited...
