Ginger Rogers passed away 17 years ago on this day. She was an amazing actress, singer, dancer, and comedienne. Ginger has brought us so many great movies to watch, and especially the ones with Fred Astaire. It's amazing how we can still watch them today, and younger people can see these fantastic films. Ginger won her academy award for best actress playing in the film Kitty Foyle in 1941. She did an awesome job in that film and deserved it. She was also a skilled tennis player and an talented artist. Fellow Ginger fans will not only remember her as Fred's partner, but someone amazing. :)
Here I'll share The Carioca which was Ginger and Fred's first dance together in Flying Down to Rio:
♪Heaven, I'm in heaven. And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak. And I seem to find the happiness I seek. When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.♪
*One of my favorite songs!!!!
