ABSTRACT
FRED Astaire's official biographer Michael Freedland writes to The Times to say that Fred's dancing partner Ginger Rogers didn't like the fleet-footed hoofer very much. 'For example, having lunch with Ginger I dared ask: "What was the magic of the Astaire-Rogers films?" Her answer was short and pithy: "Don't you mean the Rogers-Astaire films? It's usual to put the lady's name first, isn't it?" She seemed more worried about that than dancing backwards in high heels.'
