While both films earned respectable gross incomes, they both lost money because of increased production costs, [24] : and Astaire left RKO, after being labeled " box office poison " by the Independent Theatre Owners of America.

Astaire was reunited with Rogers in at MGM for their final outing, The Barkleys of Broadway , the only one of their films together to be shot in Technicolor.

Astaire left RKO in to freelance and pursue new film opportunities, with mixed though generally successful outcomes.

Throughout this period, Astaire continued to value the input of choreographic collaborators. Unlike the s when he worked almost exclusively with Hermes Pan, he tapped the talents of other choreographers to innovate continually.

His first post-Ginger dance partner was the redoubtable Eleanor Powell , considered the most exceptional female tap-dancer of her generation. They starred in Broadway Melody of , in which they performed a celebrated extended dance routine to Cole Porter's " Begin the Beguine.

She really knocked out a tap dance in a class by herself. He played alongside Bing Crosby in Holiday Inn and later Blue Skies But, in spite of the enormous financial success of both, he was reportedly dissatisfied with roles where he lost the girl to Crosby.

The former film is memorable for his virtuoso solo dance to "Let's Say it with Firecrackers". The latter film featured " Puttin' On the Ritz ", an innovative song-and-dance routine indelibly associated with him.

Other partners during this period included Paulette Goddard in Second Chorus , in which he dance-conducted the Artie Shaw orchestra.

He made two pictures with Rita Hayworth. The first film, You'll Never Get Rich , catapulted Hayworth to stardom.

In the movie, Astaire integrated for the third time Latin American dance idioms into his style the first being with Ginger Rogers in "The Carioca" number from Flying Down to Rio and the second, again with Rogers, was the "Dengozo" dance from The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle His second film with Hayworth, You Were Never Lovelier , was equally successful.

It featured a duet to Kern's " I'm Old Fashioned ," which became the centerpiece of Jerome Robbins 's New York City Ballet tribute to Astaire. He next appeared opposite the seventeen-year-old Joan Leslie in the wartime drama The Sky's the Limit In it, he introduced Arlen and Mercer 's " One for My Baby " while dancing on a bar counter in a dark and troubled routine.

Astaire choreographed this film alone and achieved modest box office success. It represented a notable departure for Astaire from his usual charming, happy-go-lucky screen persona, and confused contemporary critics.

While Follies was a hit, Yolanda bombed at the box office. He nominated "Puttin' on the Ritz" as his farewell dance. After announcing his retirement in , Astaire concentrated on his horse-racing interests and in founded the Fred Astaire Dance Studios , which he subsequently sold in Astaire's retirement did not last long.

Astaire returned to the big screen to replace an injured Kelly in Easter Parade opposite Judy Garland , Ann Miller , and Peter Lawford.

He followed up with a final reunion with Rogers replacing Judy Garland in The Barkleys of Broadway Both of these films revived Astaire's popularity and in he starred in two musicals.

Three Little Words with Vera-Ellen and Red Skelton was for MGM. Let's Dance with Betty Hutton was on loan-out to Paramount. While Three Little Words did quite well at the box office, Let's Dance was a financial disappointment.

Royal Wedding with Jane Powell and Peter Lawford proved to be very successful, but The Belle of New York with Vera-Ellen was a critical and box-office disaster.

The Band Wagon received rave reviews from critics and drew huge crowds. But because of its high cost, it failed to make a profit on its first release.

Soon after, Astaire, like the other remaining stars at MGM, was let go from his contract because of the advent of television and the downsizing of film production.

In , Astaire was about to start work on a new musical, Daddy Long Legs with Leslie Caron at 20th Century Fox. Then, his wife Phyllis became ill and suddenly died of lung cancer.

Astaire was so bereaved that he wanted to shut down the picture and offered to pay the production costs out of his pocket. However, Johnny Mercer , the film's composer, and Fox studio executives convinced him that work would be the best thing for him.

Daddy Long Legs only did moderately well at the box office. His next film for Paramount, Funny Face , teamed him with Audrey Hepburn and Kay Thompson.

Despite the sumptuousness of the production and the good reviews from critics, it failed to make back its cost. Similarly, Astaire's next project — his final musical at MGM, Silk Stockings , in which he co-starred with Cyd Charisse , also lost money at the box office.

Afterward, Astaire announced that he was retiring from dancing in film. His legacy at this point was 30 musical films in 25 years.

Astaire did not retire from dancing altogether. He made a series of four highly rated Emmy Award -winning musical specials for television in , , , and Each featured Barrie Chase , with whom Astaire enjoyed a renewed period of dance creativity.

The first of these programs, 's An Evening with Fred Astaire , won nine Emmy Awards, including "Best Single Performance by an Actor" and "Most Outstanding Single Program of the Year.

Astaire won the Emmy for Best Single Performance by an Actor. The choice had a controversial backlash because many believed his dancing in the special was not the type of "acting" for which the award was designed.

At one point, Astaire offered to return the award, but the Television Academy refused to consider it.

A restoration of the program won a technical Emmy in for Ed Reitan, Don Kent, and Dan Einstein. They restored the original videotape, transferring its contents to a modern format and filling in gaps where the tape had deteriorated with kinescope footage.

Astaire played Julian Osborne, a non-dancing character, in the nuclear war drama On the Beach He was nominated for a Golden Globe Best Supporting Actor award for his performance, losing to Stephen Boyd in Ben-Hur.

Astaire appeared in non-dancing roles in three other films and several television series from to Astaire's last major musical film was Finian's Rainbow , directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Astaire shed his white tie and tails to play an Irish rogue who believes that if he buries a crock of gold in the shadows of Fort Knox the gold will multiply.

Astaire's dance partner was Petula Clark , who played his character's skeptical daughter. He described himself as nervous about singing with her, while she said she was worried about dancing with him.

The film was a modest success both at the box office and among critics. Astaire continued to act in the s. He appeared on television as the father of Robert Wagner 's character, Alexander Mundy, in It Takes a Thief.

In the movie The Towering Inferno , he danced with Jennifer Jones and received his only Academy Award nomination, in the category of Best Supporting Actor.

He voiced the mailman narrator S. D Kluger in the s animated television specials Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town and The Easter Bunny Is Comin' to Town.

Astaire also appeared in the first two That's Entertainment! In the second compilation, aged seventy-six, he performed brief dance linking sequences with Kelly, his last dance performances in a musical film.

In the summer of , he made three albums in London, Attitude Dancing , They Can't Take These Away from Me , and A Couple of Song and Dance Men , the last an album of duets with Bing Crosby.

In , Astaire played a supporting role, as a dog owner, in the cult movie The Amazing Dobermans , co-starring Barbara Eden and James Franciscus , and played Dr.

Seamus Scully in the French film The Purple Taxi In , he co-starred with Helen Hayes in a well received television film A Family Upside Down in which they played an elderly couple coping with failing health.

Astaire won an Emmy Award for his performance. He made a well publicized guest appearance on the science-fiction television series Battlestar Galactica in , as Chameleon, the possible father of Starbuck , in "The Man with Nine Lives," a role written for him by Donald P.

Astaire asked his agent to obtain a role for him on Galactica because of his grandchildren's interest in the series and the producers were delighted at the opportunity to create an entire episode to feature him.

This episode marked the final time that he danced on screen, in this case with Anne Jeffreys. He acted nine different roles in The Man in the Santa Claus Suit in His final film role was the adaptation of Peter Straub 's novel Ghost Story.

This horror film was also the last for two of his most prominent castmates, Melvyn Douglas and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Astaire was a virtuoso dancer, able when called for to convey light-hearted venturesomeness or deep emotion.

His technical control and sense of rhythm were astonishing. Long after the photography for the solo dance number "I Want to Be a Dancin' Man" was completed for the feature The Belle of New York , it was decided that Astaire's humble costume and the threadbare stage set were inadequate and the entire sequence was reshot.

The documentary That's Entertainment! III shows the two performances side by side in split screen. Frame for frame, the two performances are identical, down to the subtlest gesture.

Astaire's execution of a dance routine was prized for its elegance, grace, originality, and precision. He drew from a variety of influences, including tap and other black rhythms, classical dance, and the elevated style of Vernon and Irene Castle.

His was a uniquely recognizable dance style which greatly influenced the American Smooth style of ballroom dance and set standards against which subsequent film dance musicals would be judged.

He termed his eclectic approach "outlaw style," an unpredictable and instinctive blending of personal artistry. His dances are economical yet endlessly nuanced.

As Jerome Robbins stated, "Astaire's dancing looks so simple, so disarming, so easy, yet the understructure, the way he sets the steps on, over or against the music, is so surprising and inventive.

Working out the steps is a very complicated process—something like writing music. You have to think of some step that flows into the next one, and the whole dance must have an integrated pattern.

If the dance is right, there shouldn't be a single superfluous movement. It should build to a climax and stop! Although Astaire was the primary choreographer of all his dance routines, he welcomed the input of collaborators and notably his principal collaborator Hermes Pan.

But dance historian John Mueller believes that Astaire acted as the lead choreographer in his solos and partnered dances throughout his career. He notes Astaire's dance style was consistent in subsequent films made with or without the assistance of Pan.

Furthermore, Astaire choreographed all the routines during his Broadway career with his sister Adele. Later in his career, he became a little more amenable to accepting the direction of his collaborators.

However, this was almost always confined to the area of extended fantasy sequences, or "dream ballets". Occasionally Astaire took joint screen credit for choreography or dance direction, but he usually left the screen credit to his collaborator.

Public demand compelled RKO to feature the pair in a classic series of starring vehicles throughout the s, with The Gay Divorcee , Top Hat , and Swing Time often cited as the best of the lot.

Although Astaire worked well with several leading ladies throughout his career, his partnership with Rogers had a special chemistry.

Their respective elegance Astaire and earthiness Rogers rubbed off on one another, and it has often been said that he gave her class and she gave him sex appeal.

Their dance routines, often in the midst of sumptuous Art Deco settings, were intricate tap or graceful ballroom numbers that served as sophisticated statements of romantic love.

Only once—in Carefree —did Astaire and Rogers share an on-screen kiss, and then only in a dream sequence. In reality, he was a hardworking perfectionist who tirelessly rehearsed routines for hours on end.

Working in collaboration with legendary choreographer Hermes Pan for his films with Rogers, Astaire eschewed the then-popular Busby Berkeley approach to filmed musicals and its emphasis on special effects , surreal settings, and chorus girls in ever-changing kaleidoscope patterns.

Instead, Astaire revolutionized the movie musical by simplifying it: solo dancers or couples were shot in full-figure, and dances were filmed with a minimum of edits and camera angles.

He is regarded as a pioneer in the serious presentation of dance on film. After the last RKO Astaire-Rogers film, The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle , Astaire appeared with various other partners, such as Eleanor Powell , Rita Hayworth whom Astaire cited as his favourite on-screen partner , and Lucille Bremer.

He retired temporarily in but returned to the screen in and appeared in a series of Technicolor musicals for MGM that, next to his films with Rogers, constitute his most highly regarded body of work.

Although possessing a rather thin-toned tenor voice, Astaire received much praise from jazz critics for his innate sense of swing and his conversational way with a song.

Several compilations have been issued of Astaire songs from film soundtracks, but his best vocal recordings were those he undertook in the early s with jazz combos led by pianist Oscar Peterson.

They were released under several titles over the years. He was awarded an honorary Academy Award for his contributions to film in , and he received a Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute in
