Fred Astaire

For folks that have broadband or a lot of patience, I just wanted to share two clips of the great work of Fred Astaire. I cant get over how amazing this guy is AND the women that danced with him!

Here are the links!:

Yep - Fred had a flare for tripping the light fantastic with some of the best "hoofers" in Tinseltown ...

One of a kind, there will never be another one like him. I liked to hear him sing too. My favorite partner for him was Ginger.

I always marvel at his talent. Much as I will agree that Ginger had to do it all backwards and in heels, there's an ease to his movements that his partners did not quite attain, and I'm not knocking them in the least. He's just that impressive.

I live in Dubuque, right by the good old Mississippi River. Born and raised here. It is very warm right now, can't wait for cooler weather.

My favorite dance he did was with Ginger in "Roberta" It was to the song "I'll be hard to handle" It was such a great dance and they look like they are having so much fun together. I also like the solo he does in "Follow the Fleet" I have those movies, I should dig them out and watch them. Thanks sushi
