Ken Karlewicz: Working on the Railroad

Looking for Fred Astaire with Darcey Bussell

Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 8 p.m.
Repeats Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 1:30 a.m.

Also airs on Fusion on Friday, Dec. 14, at 10 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m.

Fred Astaire is one of the most famous dancers of all time, but many people don’t know his career dancing with Hollywood’s biggest starlets greatly frustrated and depressed him.

In this new documentary, retired ballerina Darcey Bussell follows Astaire’s footsteps from Nebraska to New York and from London to Los Angeles to discover more about his personal life and career, and why he hated sharing the spotlight with his many famous dancing partners.
