Can there be any doubt? There were better dancers and better actresses but there was only one woman whose name forever became linked with Fred's in the minds of the movie-going public. Together onscreen, they sparked like no other pair of onscreen lovers have ever before or since. They filled the screen with an incredible chemistry that defied analysis. Off-screen, the created magnificent dances of grace and athleticism, working tirelessly together to advance the state of the movie musical. Such was the public's clamour for more Fred and Ginger that they made no less than ten movies together, nine at RKO and their reunion at MGM which showed that age could slow them but nothing could take away the magic that the world has known, quite simply, as Fred and Ginger.
For doing everything Fred did, backwards and in high heels, with style, grace and flair, for being lovely to look at, delightful to know, and sheer heaven to watch alongside Fred for ten incredible movies, and for being the only woman to ever really match Fred Astaire in every scene they were together, AlsoDances.Net is proud to declare Ginger Rogers our choice as Fred Astaire's Best Overall Partner.
