“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.

-  Frank and Ernest comic by Bob Thaves in 1982

Quotes by Ginger Rogers:

"My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months."

​"Part of the joy of dancing is conversation. Trouble is, some men can't talk and dance at the same time."

Ginger Rogers made over 70 films in her lifetime and won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Kitty Foyle in 1940. She was an excellent comedy and dramatic actress, singer, and dancer.
