Astaire". Fred Astaire (1899-1987) began his career touring in the vaudeville circuit with his sister Adele as a dancing partner. After many stage hits, he was given a screen test resulting in the famous verdict: "Can't act. Slightly bald. Can dance a little." In the 1930s, he was paired with Ginger Rogers in ten films and continued to dominate musical films in the 1940s. Astaire was a recipient of a special Academy Award in 1949 for his contribution to films and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for The Towering Inferno in 1974. He died at 88 in 1987. Two items. Lightly creased and soiled. Ink has run slightly at address. Otherwise, fine condition.
