BIOGRAPHY OF FRED ASTAIRE

Actor and dancer, the son of an Austrian emigrant, he made his debut at a very young age by dancing with his sister Adele. The two formed a successful couple performing in London and Broadway theaters from 1907 to 1932. Left alone due to Adele’s marriage to an English lord, in 1933 he signed a contract with RKO and made his big screen debut with a small part in “Dancing Lady” by Robert Z. Leonard with Joan Crawford. In the same year he meets Ginger Rogers on the set of Thorntorn Freeland’s “Carioca” (Flyng down to Rio) and with her he forms one of the most famous couples in cinema. They work together in a dozen films, but in 1939 the harmony between the two is broken and she abandons him to try a different career; they met one last time in 1949 in Charles Walters’ Barckleys of Broadway. In 1946 he decided to leave the cinema and opened a chain of dance schools. But it will be for a while since in 1948 he returned to the screens with the film “I loved you without knowing it” (Easter Parade) by Walters himself alongside Judy Garland, also following a petition from the Paramount Theater in New York with ten thousand signatures of In his career he received two Oscars: in 1949 a Special Oscar for his contribution to musical films and in 1974 for Best Supporting Actor in John Guillermin’s The Towering Inferno, in in which he plays a non-dancing but dramatic role which also earned him a Golden Globe. He received another Golden Globe for Richard Thorpe’s “Three little words” in 1950 and special career awards from the Berlin Film Festival in 1970 and the American Film Institute in 1981. He had only one wife, Phyllis Porter, married in 1933, with whom she had two children, Fred jr. and Ava. Two of his great passions: horses and golf.His grave is in Oakwood Memorial Park, the same cemetery where Ginger Rogers was buried.
