This Sunday marks the 121st birthday of one of the greatest dancers ever. Fred Astaire died in 1987 of pneumonia at the age of 88. But not before an incredible career on Broadway and on films and television that spanned 76 years.
At the 1970 Oscars Astaire was just shy of his 71st birthday.
You’ll see him a lot in this series of video clips set to “Uptown Funk” by British record producer Mark Ronson (2015).
