Savinelli: Ginger's Favorite Smooth (104) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-16120
Being a somewhat young(ish) late twenty-something, I was ashamed to ask who "Ginger" Rogers was, knowing the angry backlash I would probably receive from asking some of the older members of our staff. Although my knowledge of the 30s and 40s cinema is limited, I will certainly redeem myself by watching "42nd Street" the next time it comes on TCM. And though I can find absolutely no picture or reference to Mrs. Rogers's affinity for pipe smoking, beyond the song duet "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", I can certainly see why this pipe may have been her favorite. The gentle curve and graceful length, this dapper bent Apple, adorned with a handsome horn-colored stem, is as light, nimble and beautiful as Ginger herself--a perfect ode to the silver screen starlet. Or could it just be that the long Churchwarden helped her avoid those times when "smoke" got "in her eyes"?
