About the author (1992)

A dancer in American theater and film as well as an actress, Ginger Rogers began her career in vaudeville, which led to engagements in Broadway shows. She co-starred in George Gershwin's Girl Crazy (1930), and that role led to Hollywood contracts. Blessed with a comedic gift and the willingness to engage it, Rogers played opposite Fred Astaire, offsetting his sophisticated presentation while matching his dancing skill. Among the many films in which she starred are Gay Divorcee, Top Hat, Kitty Foyle, and Monkey Business.
