1982 NEA, Inc

Ginger Rogers did indeed do everything Fred Astaire did in high heels and backwards! This, among other things, accounts for were continued fame. (This Frank and Ernest cartoon is reportedly the origin of the now-famous statement often wrongly attributed to Ginger herself, that she did everything Fred Astaire did, only backwards and in high heels. Former Governor of Texas, Ann Richards, is also often wrongly credited for this quote, because she used it in her keynote address to the Democratic National Convention in 1988.)

Her fashion sense and costuming are legend. The dress below was violently disliked by Fred Astaire because it shed all over his tuxedo, but the look on screen was priceless (just overlook the wafts of fluff!)
