Fred Astaire: Happy Birthday

Fred Astaire would have been insanely old this year: 111 years old! He was born in 1899 and died on June 22, 1987 from pneumonia. Surely, we must still remember and celebrate his birth!

Fred is one of the best dancers in all of film history. If I could ever get access to a time machine, I'm going to go back and dance with him. How awesome would that be?

He also knew how to dress. The proof of this is displayed below in pictures:

Fred, pondering his dancing brilliance.

Fred looking dashingly handsome.

I've also included a clip from The Band Wagon (1953):
