The Ginger Rogers Show

A pilot was made for a television series called... what was the name again?  Hmmm... it was just on the tip of my tongue, ... oh yeah...


The show wasn't picked up as a series.  The pilot did appear as a single episode on The Vacation Showcase, July 22, 1963.  It was called "A Love Affair Just for Three."  You can watch the show on

The story line had Ginger playing twins, Elizabeth and Margaret Harcourt.  One was a serious writer and the other a less serious fashion designer.  Both were beautiful and wore lovely clothes.  Charles Ruggles played their Uncle Eli.  Give it a look and judge for yourself how it went.  Fortunately, Ginger herself appears at the end of the program to talk about the future of the series.  Unfortunately, it didn't have a future.  

And, here are a few frame grabs from the show.
