Mr. A

“‘Mr. A! when will you be ready? We’re all set up for the dance stills. 'Miss R’ is putting on her gown! Can I tell Johnny Miehle ten minutes? or what is your pleasure?’” Eddie Rubin, who was the Astaire-Rogers personal publicity man, was standing outside Mr. Astaire’s portable dressing-room, awaiting the answer to his question. That ’Mr. A’ business started with Eddie, and soon the whole RKO lot referred to him in like manner.“ 

Ginger Rogers, from Steps in Time
