Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were iconic dance partners who made motion pictures together from 1933–1949. Astaire and Rogers made their first pairing in a movie in 1933, Flying Down to Rio, in which they had supporting roles; the main star was Dolores Del Rio.
Although their relationship was amicable, both wanted to explore new avenues. Their farewell film was a musical biography of ballroom dancers Vernon and Irene Castle. When Astaire and Rogers filmed the last dance in this film, Missouri Waltz, they attracted a large crowd of co-workers and crew members from RKO and numerous other studios, all of whom attended to bid an emotional farewell to the great dance team.
