Happy birthday, Ginger Rogers // 16th July 1911 - 25th April 1995

‘My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months.’ - Ginger Rogers

'Sure he [Fred Astaire] was great, but don’t forget Ginger Rogers did everything he did backwards…and in high heels!’ - Bob Thaves

'I’m most grateful to have had that joyous time in motion pictures. It really was a Golden Age of Hollywood. Pictures were talking, they were singing, they were coloring. It was beginning to blossom out: bud and blossom were both present.’ - Ginger Rogers

'Ginger was brilliantly effective. She made everything work for her. Actually, she made things very fine for the both of us and she deserves most of the credit for our success.’ - Fred Astaire
