Greetings from VKMfanHuey!!!

Welcome to the Gingerology blog for the 1930 Paramount film, Young Man Of Manhattan!!!

This film was Ginger Rogers' first appearance in a 'full length feature', portraying the character of Puff Randolph, a textbook flapper gal who has designs on free-wheeling sports columnist Toby McLean (Norman Foster)... which is a problem, since Toby is hitched to his sweet writer wifey Ann (Claudette Colbert).

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, 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!

  1. I love the phone. Although it is obvious where the earpiece is, one is left to question where the, er, (awkward pause) mouthpiece is. Oh for those pre-code days :)

  2. ...It's not quite a SmartPhone... As freaky as it is, I'd love to have it in my Gingerbilia collection...well, I'd probably put some shorts or something on the little dude...
