'Ginger Rogers is one of Hollywood's most enduring legends. As the exquisite film partner of Fred Astaire, she danced her way into the hearts of people all over the world, starring in such classic films as 'Top Hat'. But she was also a serious dramatic actress, winning an Oscar for her performance in 'Kitty Foyle' in 1940. Now for the first time, Ginger tells her story.

Beginning with the colourful vaudeville circuit of the Twenties, she traces her career from the stage to the big screen. Arriving in Hollywood in 1931, she quickly became a film star for RKO, where the partnership she forged with Fred Astaire led to some of the most magical moments the screen has ever seen.

Ginger tells the true and, at times sad story of her five marriages - the first when only seventeen to vaudevillian Jack Pepper: and of her performing partners- Jimmy Stewart, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Katherine Hepburn

Ginger Rogers' heart-warming and revealing memoirs paint a vivid portrait of a much loved actress; and of a glittering Hollywood era, now vanished.' (Information taken from inside of dust jacket)
