American film and Broadway stage dancer, choreographer, singer, musician and actor, born 10 May 1899 in Omaha, Nebraska, USA, died 22 June 1987 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Father of [a=Ava Astaire].

Astaire was the American movie dancer of the 1930s and 1940s. Famed for his mixture of elegance and nice-guy charm, he was a popular romantic lead despite his lack of typical movie star good looks. His dance routines are a staple of movie highlight reels. He was often paired with dancing actress [a=Ginger Rogers]; their movies together included Flying Down to Rio (1933), Top Hat (1935), and Swing Time (1936).

Astaire was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his non-dancing appearance in the 1974 disaster film The Towering Inferno.
