Fred Astaire taps again

When I was little I wanted to grow up to dance with Fred Astaire. I didn't realize that he had grown old or that my ability at formal dancing would be so limited. Putting on the Ritz is a well researched biography on Astaire.

Because (unlike today's stars) Astaire was a private person, the book is doesn't give you a very personal view of Astaire. However I found the information on his dancing fascinating
