Hooray for Ginger!
I have enjoyed all the films I have seen with Ginger Rogers in them so far. She was so very talented, whether comedy, drama, mmusical, or film noir. In my opinion, she is great in all genre. I had never seen this one, "The First Traveling Saleslady", before. I enjoyed it so much. The story was good. She was great, as always. Thereby, making a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable experience. Would you please show more of her films more often? Also, would you consider having Geinger Rogers as "Star of the Month" sometime soon? This would give other fans of hers like me a chance to see many more of her less known films.Thank you so much. A long time fan of both TCM and Ginger Rogers.
The first traveling Saleslady.
I loved this movie. So many stars and so uplifting. It is nice to see the full credits on here , 'cause you don't run them after the movie. Thanks for so many days of excellent entertainment.
THE FIRST TRAVELING SALESLADY
- LINDA ROBERTS
GINGER ROGERS SHINES WITH TALENT, WIT, HUMOR, AND DOWN-TO-EARTH SAVVY IN THIS ROLE. SHE IS SURROUNDED WITH AN ALL-STAR CAST. IT' S MY FAVORIT GINGER ROGERS MOVIE, EVEN THOUGH, SHE HAS MANY GOOD MOVIES TO HER CREDIT. I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD SEE IT AT LEAST ONCE. I RATE IT RIGHT AT THE TOP. I WISH THEY STILL MADE GOOD MOVIES TODAY. THERE IS NO ROOM FOR IMAGNATION ANYMORE.HOLLYWOOD DOESN'T GET IT!!. SOMETIMES, MOST TIMES, PEOPLE JUST WANT GOOD ENTERTAINMENT, ESPECIALLY A FEW GOOD LAUGHS.
Post-war Politics Pooh-Pooh

This is a well-crafted script - witty, sensitive to historical authenticity, and patently romantic. All the stars are used well - typically - but it's a hoot to watch the larger than life Jim Arness tower over the diminutive Rodgers, who stands her ground with her halo of golden hair. Barry Nelson is at ease in the Harry Marvin role, except that this Pauline refuses to be the distressed damsel. The improbable pairing of the effervescent Carol Channing with her prettier co-star, Clint Eastwood is a performing arts anomaly. Perhaps the script wishes to support a feminist message but falls back on pat romantic comedy plot twists that blur the message. In a way, this is a western docu-drama with a feminist vent. Rodgers appeals to western women's sensibility when she is thwarted by the masculine 'no barbed wire' stronghold. We get a glimpse of western women's domestic working world. Their clothes and hair-dos reflect the harshness of their untamed environ. For anyone, particularly the westernphile or students of film feminism, this is a fascinating cinematic insight into one feminine challenged era through the eyes of another. Take a look! FFFF
Clint Eastwood kisses Carol Channing!
What a hoot. This is a cute movie. Early roles for James Arnes (Matt Dillon) and Clint Eastwood. Has Carol Channing young and without all the makeup and as a love interest for a young Clint Eastwood. Worth watching just for that.
