fun fact: I've always said there's a reason why no one's ever made a biopic about Fred Astaire - because who would be able to play a quadruple-threat with the same kind of charisma? It turns out no one's ever made a biopic about Fred Astaire because he "stipulated in his will that no film representations of himself be made". Now we know he's a quintuple-threat, for his intelligence and foresight.
