"When he’s with Ginger Rogers, something is happening. In their best numbers, that tension between them is really electrifying. It isn’t just dance. They’re dancing to prove something, to make something happen.”

ooooh marilyn 

People used to think Marilyn was dumb, but nobody could deliver a line like this with this level of comic timing. She was actually quite brilliant.

He stops short, looks at her, then at the umbrella hanging useless in his hand, then back to her. There is something sadly touching in his manner, in his look.

Dancing Cheek to Cheek: a collection songs by the most iconic dance partners in hollywood musical history. A mix to get your feet tapping, hips swaying and cheeks touching all night long.

Fred Astaire (May 10, 1899- June 22, 1987) and Ginger Rogers (July 16, 1911- April 25, 1995) were iconic dance partners who made motion pictures together from 1933–1949. They made a total of 10 movies, revolutionizing hollywood musicals and setting in new standard for elegance and romance through seemingly effortless dance routines. Although no romantic connection, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are still recognized as one of the most memorable pairs in Hollywood History

"I adore the man [Fred Astaire]. I always have adored him. It was the most fortunate thing that ever happened to me, being teamed with Fred: he was everything a little starry-eyed girl from a small town ever dreamed of.”

"All the girls I ever danced with thought they couldn’t do it, but of course they could. So they always cried. All except Ginger. No no, Ginger never cried."
