Why thank you, my dear anon!

It’s the little things that make Fred and Ginger so extraordinary. Not to mention the hot chemistry.

THERE WAS NO WAY TO KEEP HIM FROM DANCING WITH ME
I’M GOING TO HIT THE ROOF

In completely unsurprising news: I LOVE GINGER ROGERS.
Even in the text you can hear her pride and her little hint of smugness. Like yep, he regularly just abandoned his wife to go hang out with his Ginge.

Watch Fred & Ginger Films Here!

WATCH SOME FRED AND GINGER MOVIES HERE.

Re-posting this link because I got into watching them again since my DVD box set has been watched into uselessness (seriously, none of my DVDs even work anymore). 

Not all ten movies are here; I tried to rip as many as I could. You’ll find:

The Gay Divorcee (1934)
Roberta (1935 and my favorite of their early movies for all the sexual chemistry)
Follow the Fleet (1936)
Carefree (1938)
The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939)
The Barkleys of Broadway (1949)

Barkleys and the Castles are the best for seeing all the real married couple affection they have for each other. Seriously awesome. All the movies are really really good, but I love to watch them play married.

In this scene from The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939), Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers sneak an open-mouthed kiss past the Hays Code. Because the scene was filmed in the dark, the censors didn’t catch the kiss, but now, viewed frame-by-frame, it definitely was a French kiss. First of all, notice how Ginger doesn’t completely close her mouth as Fred starts leaning in for the kiss. She keeps her lips parted just enough so that he can slip his tongue through. If you look really closely, you can see how Ginger’s bottom lip quivers just a little bit in anticipation of the kiss. In response, Fred puckers his lips just a little — but not in a stiff manner. The two of them finally do kiss, and it is a bit difficult to see, but as they shift position, Fred moves his jaw so that it is a French kiss. (via fuckyeahfredandginger)

Oh my goodness and the best part is it’s true :D

but ginger really was fred’s best dancing partner here i have an example for you

you know how everyone says “ginger rogers made it look as if dancing with fred astaire was the most fun thing in the world; this is why people fantasize about dancing with him”? well it’s true.

i…

Yes, that is the kiss Fred snuck into Change Partners. Which makes me wonder if they didn’t kiss a lot more in rehearsal. Because yow wow Freddie.

Sketch dump of Edwin “Pop” and Mabel from Swing Time. I didn’t really make them look like the actors since I wanted the freedom to exaggerate and draw silly expressions of them. Both were really fun to draw, especially Pop :B. More characters to come later~

Oh and there’s also a couple of Fred and Ginger drawings as well.

OH my goodness, please more.
