A publicity photograph from Royal Wedding signed by both stars
Photograph signed: "Fred Astaire" and "Jane Powell". B/w, 8x10. A publicity shot from MGM's 1951 film Royal Wedding. The plot has Astaire and Powell heading to Merrie Olde England to perform at the palace. FREDASTAIRE (1899-1987, born Frederic Austerlitz, Jr. in Omaha, Nebraska) 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 Awardin 1949 for his contribution to films and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for The Towering Inferno in 1974. Possessing a wide-ranging operatic singing voice, JANE POWELL (born in 1928) was a radio performer from childhood. She took dancing and acting lessons, then made her film debut at 15 in Song of the Open Road (1944). She is best known for her parts in film musicals of the early 1950s, including Royal Wedding (1951) and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). Slightly worn at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
