A must-see for Astaire fans
5 January 2001 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Audrey Hepburn hosts this loving look back at Fred Astaire and the composers who wrote legendary songs for him. It is a tribute to his unique style of singing that brought these songs to life. Many composers of the day would say Astaire was their favorite singer to write a song for, because he sang the song exactly the way the composer had in mind.

Filled with clips from many of Fred's movies, a couple of his tv appearances, and celebrity interviews, this is a definite must-see for all fans of the incomparable Fred Astaire.
