Ginger Rogers


Stage Door 1937 - Ginger Rogers

From Stage Door, 1937.


Born Virginia Katherine McMath July 16, 1911 in Independence, Missouri. Died April 25, 1995 in Rancho Mirage, California, USA.

Ginger Rogers was a deft screwball comedy actress and famously Fred Astaire's best known dancing partner through 9 musicals with RKO and one technicolor musical for M-G-M (The Barkleys of Broadway, 1949).

Rogers also won an Academy Award in 1941 for her serious role in the drama Kitty Foyle. She has been described in many classic Hollywood books as being a consummate professional and for being capable of working through extremely heavy production schedules.

Fred Astaire praised her ability to innovate and to maintain a cool head during the difficult choreographic practice work for their RKO musical dance routines, and said on several occasions that she contributed more than fifty-percent to their success onscreen.
