I really thought Fred Astaire invented tap dance when he just copied his style and dance from black people..In the 80's when I saw an old film from the 1920s of black men and women tap dancing I was astonished!!
Jared Jackson (1 month ago)
Another overrated white man. James Brown and Jackie Wilson moved better than him, so did Mike. Don't get me wrong he was good way better when younger. But come on now, seriously y'all probably still think Elvis could dance.

Why is Bob Hope in every Oscar? And why does Astaire have more hair?
Lore Bay (1 month ago)
Nice, reminds me of how I liked to see him dance when I was a kid. It’s wonderful to still move like that in your 70s.

Fred Astaire (to me) is the definition of “you either have it or you don’t.”

Oh how I wish I could dance like Fred Astaire. Just started lessons last month at 86. Love it

Fred Astaire IMO the most talented individual ever to appear in films. To call him an icon is a pathetic understatement. Yet so taken for granted that this audience of motion picture luminaries who worked in the industry he helped lift to its greatest heights did not stand up. They did not realize who he was.

He was only 71 Y.O. when he showed how it was done.
