Quotable Quotes:

"I have never had anything that I can remember in the business - and that includes all the movies and the stage shows and everything - that I didn't enjoy. I didn't like some of the small-time vaudeville, because we weren't going on and getting better. Aside from that, I didn't dislike anything." (IMDB)

"I've never laughed as hard, I've never done more silly things until my mind started to die and wither."

"The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself."

"In male fashion, Astaire acted and danced his way to stardom. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 1948 and bravely fought the disease. He died in 1957, aged 53, with a smile on his face. (V)"
