Astaire- The man, The Dancer By Bob Thomas


In January, 1933, a young Broadway star named Fred Astaire entered the RKO studios for a screen test. “Can’t act. Slightly bald. Also dances,” was the reaction of one official. Thus began the amazing film career of one of the world’s most celebrated dancers. Astaire: The Man, The Dancer captures the elegance and mystique of the most recognised and loved figures ever to dance across the silver screen. During nearly eighty years in every major entertainment medium, he has persevered and excelled. He never quit, never passed up an opportunity to push himself and to dance to new levels of achievement.  A complete, biography – is a fitting tribute to the man and his art.
