With a life spanning 88 years and a career in film, theater and television during most of that, you know there are lots of reasons to celebrate Fred Astaire today. You'll find several clips in the slideshow below. But if you don't have time to watch all of them, don't miss slide number 18, which inter-cuts scenes from Fred Astaire in Band Wagon with Michael Jackson's music video for Smooth Criminal.
If you’re reading this website, think of me as a troubadour standing on the street corner, strumming a guitar and singing a few songs. Not everyone who comes this way is able to make contribution. But if you’re one of the passers-by who can, then feel free to drop a little spare change in my hat by clicking either the Donate or the Become a Patron button below. Thank you!
