Ginger Rogers and Ruby Keeler in "42nd Street". Used to have this picture hanging on my bedroom wall when I was a kid back in the 70's. Hopefully I still have it somewhere!


Ruby Keeler (1910 – 1993) was a Canadian-born American actress, dancer and singer most famous for her on-screen coupling with Dick Powell in a string of successful early musicals at Warner Brothers, particularly 42nd Street (1933). From 1928 to 1940, she was married to singer Al Jolson. She retired from show business in the 1940s but made a widely publicized comeback on Broadway in 1971
