fun fact: I've always said there's a reason why no one's ever made a biopic about Fred Astaire - because who would be able to play a quadruple-threat with the same kind of charisma? It turns out no one's ever made a biopic about Fred Astaire because he "stipulated in his will that no film representations of himself be made". Now we know he's a quintuple-threat, for his intelligence and foresight.

Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire...I was sitting in a French Qt. restaurant back in 1980 or 81 when Ginger came in with a much younger escort. It was later said she was in New Orleans for watercolor lessons, but I suspect she was having cosmetic skin treatment.  Bad timing because they had a TV tribute to Fred and she missed it.
