Fred Astaire

Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz; May 10, 1899 – June 22, 1987) was an American actor, dancer, singer, choreographer, and television presenter. He is widely considered the greatest dancer in film history.

His stage and subsequent film and television careers spanned a total of 76 years. He starred in more than 10 Broadway and West End musicals, made 31 musical films, four television specials, and numerous recordings. As a dancer, his outstanding traits were an uncanny sense of rhythm, perfectionism, and innovation. His most memorable dancing partnership was with Ginger Rogers, with whom he co-starred in a series of ten Hollywood musicals during the age of Classical Hollywood cinema, including ''Top Hat'' (1935), ''Swing Time'' (1936), and ''Shall We Dance'' (1937). Among the other notable films in which Astaire gained further popularity and took the genre of tap dancing to a new level were ''Holiday Inn'' (1942), ''Easter Parade'' (1948), ''The Band Wagon'' (1953), ''Funny Face'' (1957), and ''Silk Stockings'' (1957). The American Film Institute named Astaire the fifth-greatest male star of Classic Hollywood cinema in 100 Years... 100 Stars. Provided by Wikipedia
