Happy Birthday: Ginger Rogers!

Ginger Rogers, made a total of 73 films, and is best known for her role as Fred Astaire's romantic interest and dancing partner in a series of ten Hollywood musical films.

She also achieved success in a variety of film roles, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in, Kitty Foyle (1940).

Kitty Foyle, a hard-working girl from a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, meets and falls in love with young socialite Wyn Strafford but his family is against her.


  1. You found a really beautiful picture of Ginger, Dawn. I'll never forget when I must have only been 9 or 10, seeing her dance with Fred Astaire in "Cheek to Cheek" That beautiful feathered dress, the romance, the gorgeous song -- that was my first introduction to Ginger, and she will always be that way to me.

  2. Beck, Ginger's performance in the film Cheek to Cheek" is also one of my favorites.
