The Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers Book

Originally published in 1972 by Outerbridge and Dienstfrey, this book is an extended appreciation of the Astaire/Rogers films. It has been carefully reprocessed with major quality improvements in most of the pictures. The author has made some corrections to the text, and there is a new introduction by Garry Wills. 193 pages.
