Fred and Adele Astaire. My grandmother always spoke of these two,(brother & sister) and how wonderful they were. I believe she saw them on the stage!...very cool.
fred astaire | "i think his whole style is english. he would have things sent from england. he used to get his clothes made at anderson & sheppard. sometimes the movie people would wonder if he didn’t look too english; they wondered if they shouldn’t americanize him a little." [hermes pan]
Fred Astaire was one of the few "stars" to come to Bing's house and was such a delight to meet and know. His love of horses was as great as Bing's and he owned plenty.
