“Fred Astaire was always a bit insecure, and he often worried that when people watched his films, they would look at Rita Hayworth’s stunning beauty, or Cyd Charisse’s long legs, or Eleanor Powell’s tap-dancing, or Ginger Rogers’ fashion sense. So, he made sure to incorporate a solo routine in every one of his films, so that at least once in the movie, all eyes would be on him." -Robert Osborne.
