One of my favorite quotes: “Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did but backwards and in high heels”. My two daughters have heard me speak it on a few occasions.

Classy woman. I got to meet her (briefly) years ago, sometime in the 90s. She was signing her book at Barnes & Noble's on 5th Ave. Long line, moved slow, but I took an extra hour for lunch.

She signed three books for me (all three were Christmas presents) and she personalized each one. She got a genuine kick out of the people buying multiple copies (I wasn't alone -- and my three was on the low side!).

Two amusing things:
I have that friendly approachable face, so I seemed to be the one passersby came up to to ask what the line was for. I told one teenager and he looked at me with his mouth wide open and said, "No. Way!" (Yes, I replied with "Way" -- he didn't seem to react to that.) He turned to his friend and said, 'Did you ever hear of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? She's in there!" (The friend seemed a little confused).

Second, while waiting on line, a limo pulled up and Rosemary Clooney got out. Had this been a sit-com, someone would've shouted, "Hey! No cuts!" but that didn't happen.
