The Astaires : Fred & Adele

Image of item
Book
In the first comprehensive study of the Astaire's theatrical career together, Riley traces their rise to fame from humble midwestern origins and early days as child performers on small-time vaudeville stages. From the start, Adele was the more natural performer, while Fred had to hone his trademark timing and elegance through endless hours of rehearsal.
