There never was a greater perfectionist, there never was, and never will be, a better dancer, and I never knew anybody more kind, more considerate, or more completely a gentleman…I love Fred and I admire and respect him. I guess it’s because he’s so many things I’d like to be and I’m not.
By far the gentlest man I have ever known.
I guess the only jewels of my life were the pictures I made with Fred Astaire.
Today is birthday of Fred Astaire, the best dancer in musical films, wonderful singer and human. Happy birthday, Mr. Astaire!
