Ginger Rogers

Ginger Rogers has a reputation as being one of the big name actresses from the 30's and 40's, but I've never been very impressed. Most (if not all) of her best movies were famous because she was dancing with Fred Astaire.

But Fred Astaire could dance with a hatrack and make it look good. I know this because he did. He had all the talent. As long as she didn't stumble and fall, the dance was going to look good.

1 Of course, the old saw is that she was the better dancer -- because she did everything Fred did, backwards and in high heels.  I guess the real measure would be how many retakes were needed because one or the other made a mis-step, but I doubt we'll ever know that answer.
