With Steps in Time dancer, choreographer, and movie star Fred Astaire (1899-1987) discusses the milestones of his professional life: his childhood in the vaudeville circuits; the musical comedies starring himself and sister Adele in New York and London; his movie successes; the founding of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios; and his triumphs on TV. He pays special attention to his celebrated partnership with Ginger Rogers, with whom he produced such classics as Top Hat , Flying Down to Rio , The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle , and countless others.
