    This is an essential book for an Astaire/Rogers fan. I've read so many books about them that I can't find the reference, but I'm sure I read that Astaire looked over this book and corrected a few facts. It has the insight of an experienced dance and film reviewer. There's information I haven't seen anywhere else, and insight such as that Roberta is "a key film. . . . Astaire and Rogers become Astaire-Rogers in this film--you can see it happening." In I'll Be Hard to Handle they share "a magical rapport," and become "fixed screen deities." Croce gives a lot of information about what was going on behind the scenes, such as the vehicle they almost cast them in instead of Roberta. I refer often to the book!

    I just got this book a day or so ago, and have not had a chance to read it, but after just skimming through it, I have to say it is thoroughly impressive and a very beautiful book. My copy is an original 1972 hardback edition in great shape with mylar dust cover etc. It was a,library book, so that makes it even more impressive that it's in such great shape after over 40 years! It's a small, compact book with the little flip pictures on each page that make it appear that Fred and Ginger are dancing when you flip the pages, which is a very cool effect!Really looking forward or reading it cover to cover because I understand this to be the definitive text on the Astaire/Rogers partnership, and I already have a few books on them as a pair and individually...This book is something to be treasured for sure!

    A must for any Astaire and Rogers fan. Lots of great stills and behind the scenes shots, and a complete synopsis and awesome movie facts and making of stories for every movie they made together (and a few they did separately!)

    THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK, ESPECIALLY FOR ROGERS/ASTAIRE FANS. IT CONTAINS BRIEF HISTORIES OF ROGERS/ASTAIRES' CAREERS BEFORE THEY STARTED WORKING TOGETHER.. THEN, CONTINUES TO EXAMINE THE 10 FILMS THAT THEY DID TOGETHER. THE AUTHOR PROVIDES THE READER WITH AN EXCELLENT REVIEW OF ROGERS/ASTAIRE AND OF THEIR FILMS. I AM TRULY PLEASED WITH THIS BOOK.

    This book lets me feel the atmosphere and the ambience of the 1930'swhen Rogers and Astair were so popular. I believe they brought muchhappiness to common people struck down by the depression.

    Arlene Croce writes in depth about every aspect of the Fred & Ginger movie legacy, discussing the dance steps, the production values, the development of the artists and their colleagues through the period the shows were made. This is a keeper for reference and for entertainment. Every time I read it before I watch one of the movies Ms. Croce discusses, I find that there's more information that I didn't absorb upon earlier readings. Chock-a-block full of goodies.

    No deifying of these two who became idols of the dance. Wouldn't have been so critical if written post mortem. I still love Fred.
