Ginger Rogers is one of the Golden Era's stars that I admire most.
Witty and talented; she sang, danced, was a great actress and brought grace and humour to her films.
She also fought alongside other famous actresses of the day for better wages, (Even as the leading lady, Rogers was paid less than many supporting dancers).
Here's to Ginger a grand gal!
Early 30's pre-blond Ginger.
Ginger with Astaire from 'Roberta'.
"...As a skilled, intuitive actress, she was cagey enough to realize that acting did not stop when dancing began...the reason so many women have fantasized about dancing with Fred Astaire is that Ginger Rogers conveyed the impression that dancing with him is the most thrilling experience imaginable".
I leave you with the talented Miss Rogers singing 'let yourself go!' from 'Follow the Fleet'.
