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.

Fred Astaire was one of the most brilliant dancers of the century, known mainly for the dance and vocal performances he gave in various classic Hollywoodland films.

Fred Astaire and his family

Harry Benson -   Fred Astaire and his wife, Robyn Smith, Los Angeles, California, 1981 - Astaire was a gracious host, a gentleman in every sense of the word. He told me he learned his sense of style from watching the Duke of Windsor. I asked the eighty-one year old star to dance for me, but he hesitated when his wife said no. The she said yes and he said no. Crossing his feet was the closest I got to the dancing, elegant Astaire.
