Puttin' on my Top Hat

I'm not sure if I've shared with you my love of old MGM musicals.  I spent many a happy Sunday afternoon watching Fred & Ginger dance their way through misunderstandings to true love and also loved Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Danny Kaye.  So when the Soartful Challenge is 'Beautiful Men from the movies' it had to be someone from that incredible musical era.  

Now Fred Astaire's face could never really be described as beautiful, but what he could do on the dance floor was without a doubt the most incredible and inspiring sight that any young girl could see.  So here is my tribute to the master of movie dancing, Mr Fred Astaire.


  1. That's really good Janice.

    I know what you mean about the dancing - he was fantastic.

  2. Fantastic Janice. This looks like old Hollywood. My favorite Fred Astaire dance is in "Holiday Inn" (I think that is the movie). He does the firecracker dance.

    Thanks for being Soartful this week.

  3. Hi janice, wow I love your artpiece, great take on the theme ju x

  4. Fab piece Janice - definitely has the glamour and sophistication of the era!

  5. This looks fab, Janice - a great take on the task

  6. Awe I really miss those old movies! I love them! This is a brilliant tribute XXX
