    Fred Astaire is the BEST dancer of the 20th Century. If you haven’t seen his ‘Puttin on the Ritz’ dance routine in the film “Blue Skies,” google it. He was an amazing man.

    Fred Astaire was an inspiration to me and to this day is the main reason I took dancing of all sorts as a kid to be able to dance to whatever music I hear now. Thanks for entertaining us with your dance movies you were great!

  13. lilabob Says:

    In response to ramone maybe your grandfather could dance better than fred, but fred astaire is a national idol to many, and is the only person i know who can make dancing with a broom or other inanimate objects look like the most graceful thing on earth. So if you have nothing good to say about fred, why post it? It obviously makes some people like me upset…
