Fred Astaire Actor, Dancer, Entertainer
Fred Astaire, was born Frederick Austerlitz in Omaha, Nebraska. His father, an Austrian emigre, had made quite a success as a beer salesman and had married the charming and beautiful Ann Gelius. From the beginning, Fred and his older sister Adele were surrounded with music. They made their debut as the Astaires, a dancing duo. Astaire was Fred's paternal grandmother's maiden name. The children began to tour on the local Vaudeville circuit and they were soon a favorite in every town they played. Unfortunately, five years later, nature took it's course and Adele began to blossom and grow. Freddie, however, was still a lanky boy. Dancing together became, for the time, impossible. The Astaires were forced into hiatus while they waited for Fred to "catch up" to Adele. It wasn't long before the Ataires were back on the circuit again. The duo was spotted by several producers and enjoyed a very successful career both on Broadway and London. In London, Adele met and married Lord Cavendish, the second son of Duke of Devonshire. She quit the stage to begin a family. The Astaires were no more. In New York Fred met and married a pretty young socialite name Phylliss Potter. It was at that time he started to test for motion pictures. After one of these tests, a producer gave him this now famous verdict: "Can't act, can't sing, balding. Can dance a little". Nevertheless, Fred was signed to a movie contract. In his second film, "Flying Down to Rio" he was teamed with a Hollywood newcomer, Ginger Rogers. The two hit the screen like lightning and ignited an exciting string of hits. Fred also starred with other leading ladies including Rita Hayworth, Cyd Charisse, Judy Garland, and Leslie Caron.

    Biography Filmography Awards Articles ... FUNNY FACE Biography: Though on screen Fred was most often associated with a top hat, white tie and tails, in real life he detested formal dress and looked on his signature costume as work clothes. FREDERICK AUSTERLITZ was born on May 10, 1899 in Omaha, Nebraska to Frederic E. Austerlitz, an Austrian immigrant and traveling salesman, and his wife Ann Geilus Austerlitz. His sister Adele, older by eighteen months, showed a talent for dancing at an early age, and although only four years old, young Fred accompanied his sister to ballet school. In 1904, Mrs. Austerlitz moved with the children to New York where they were enrolled in a performing arts school run by Ned Wayburn, one of the pioneers of modern tap dancing. The following year Fred and Adele made their vaudeville debut on a stage in New Jersey as a miniature bride and groom, and began touring on the Orpheum circuit in an act called "Juvenile Artists Presenting an Electric Musical Toe-Dancing Novelty." Though Fred sporadically attended public school in New Jersey, most of his schooling came on the road under his mother's tutelage. With the advent of World War I, the Austerlitz's anglicized their name to "Astaire" and the teenage brother-sister hoofers began to make the new name famous. In 1917 the pair made their Broadway debut in a musical revue called "Over the Top," and although the show itself didn't fare well, the Astaires received very positive notices. Though they seldom had any lines, Fred and Adele danced their way through a number of musical revues until in 1922 they were cast in "For Goodness' Sake" with songs by George and Ira Gershwin. Although they had sixth billing, they stole the show.

    A Tribute to Fred Astaire
    (This article was originally written in May, 1999, in celebration of the Astaire Centennial. It has been updated several times since then.) Many say he was the greatest dancer in movie history. Some even say he was one of the greatest jazz singers. His acting ability improved with age; in fact, his first and only Oscar nomination came in 1975, for Best Supporting Actor in The Towering Inferno , when he was 76 years old. On the other hand, there was the studio drone whose opinion reportedly was, "Can't act. Slightly bald. Also dances."
