While filming Easter Parade Fred Astaire’s daughter Ava, and Judy Garland’s daughter Liza met. Ava pointed to her father and told the other girl “That’s my daddy, he dances” to which Liza replied, “That’s my mama, she knits”

He got along with Ginger perfectly, and I get so mad hearing the same old baloney, because I never heard the two of them having one cross word. I do not think Eleanor Powell was Fred’s greatest dancing partner. I think Ginger Rogers was. Not that she was the greatest of the dancers. Cyd Charisse was a much finer technical dancer. But there was something when Fred and Ginger danced which was magic. They seemed to go together. - Hermes Pan
