Not Red Headed, But...
Some "Stars" in movies or related fields are all flash and image.
Ginger had the image, plenty of flash, but was also exceptionally skilled in various arts. Comedy, drama, dancing, singing...playing heroes and sometimes even a villain-Ginger was always eminently watchable. I've never seen her deliver a bad performance; she is one of the few professionals who always did more than expected, as if she were working at a higher level.
Happy birthday, Ginger!
Some of her best movies to seek out:
The Major and the Minor
Having Wonderful Time
All of the Fred and Ginger musicals.
