FRED ASTAIRE: BEYOND THE CLICHES - Join us to learn more about one of Hollywood's legendary stars of the 1930s and 40s. In Fred Astaire: Beyond the Cliches, presenter Chris Bamberger contends that the widely held image of Fred Astaire in a tuxedo or tails, dancing with Ginger Rogers, was only a part of Astaire's onscreen persona. Through the use of film clips and rare photographs, she will present the many dimensions of Astaire, and focus on him as an actor and singer as well as a dancer.
