Graceful dancer of the silver screen whose career spanned decades. Astaire is perhaps best remembered for the elegantly choreographed musicals of the 1930s in which he played opposite Ginger Rogers.
Astaire can be seen dancing with Rogers in what looks like rotoscoped footage in Malibu Beach Party (Freleng, 1940). Daffy mentions Astaire when singing to Leon Schlesinger in You Ought to Be In Pictures (Freleng, 1940).
