Fred Astaire Friday

This is Fred Astaire and Ginger Roger's final musical together, The Barkleys of Broadway. Originally, Fred was to star with Judy Garland, who had to bow out due to "ill health" and was replaced by Ginger. The voiceover in this clip is Gene Kelly from "That's Entertainment."

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
