ELEANOR POWELL (1912-1982)

One of my favorite female dancers of all-time was the forgotten Eleanor Powell. She was the female Fred Astaire and danced in many MGM musicals of the 1930s...

  2. Most people under 60 unfortunately do not know who Eleanor Powell is...she was one of the greats!

  3. Forgotten?

    Not by me, but then I can't claim to be under 60.

  4. I feel by mainstream Hollywood that Eleanor Powell is pretty forgotten. You barely hear about Cyd Charisse and Ann Miller...let alone Eleanor Powell.

  5. What a shame! Even I know who Cyd Charisse and Ann Miller were. And I'm well under 60. LOL Cyd Charisse is my favourite dancer, especially with Fred Astaire in "Dancing in the Dark".
