I remember this one too..
9 October 2004 | by bunniesormaybemidgetsSee all my reviews

It's good to see that someone else saw this movie as well, because I remember as a kid watching it, and again when I was about 14, for old time's sake...I remember thinking 'oh my gosh, the acting is SOOOOOO bad!'

But the happy ending was what sucked me into watching the movie again and again as a child. I used to have such a crush on the kid who played Eddie Coogan, but was shocked to see that he was sadly hit by a train not too long after Ginger Meggs was made.

I can still vaguely remember the song that plays at the beginning and end of the movie, it went something like, 'Ginger Ginger Meggs...hey there Ginger!'

I remember the tune, just not the lyrics...but would love to hire it out again one day, just for a laugh, although I'm not sure whether it is still available. Definitely a movie to watch when you're not sober, makes it all the more funnier :-)
