Fred Astaire drums skit (Damsel In Distress 1937)

I’ve been away from the drums more than at them these past few months, but hopefully soon I’ll be able to make a better reacquaintance with me lovely kit.

Did you know that . . .

“After Fred Astaire’s first screen test, the memo from the testing director of MGM, dated 1933, said, “Can’t act! Slightly bald! Can dance a little!” Astaire kept that memo over the fireplace in his Beverly Hills home.”
(Chicken Soup for the Soul, by Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen)
