Fred Astaire in Ziegfeld Follies (1946). Scanned from my book, "Hollywood Colour Portraits" by John Kobal.
He looks so happy! Just look at that pink! I think Fred Astaire is possibly one of the most amazingly and utterly fantastic dancers/actors/singers. I read that his original screentest had these notes attached to it: "Can't sing. Can't act. Balding. Can dance a little." Boy those notes were wrong! I love all of his roles
I'm off to go and see Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and no doubt it'll be as random as they usually are, but I can think of worse ways to spend two and a half hours than watching Johnny Depp run around beaches and steer a ship as Capt. Jack Sparrow.
