      Eleanor Powell

      Eleanor Powell

      Highest Rated: 100% Broadway Melody of 1938 (1937)

      Lowest Rated: 80% Broadway Melody of 1940 (1940)

      Birthday: Nov 21, 1912

      Birthplace: Springfield, Massachusetts, USA

      Ever-smiling, world-class tap artist who danced her way through a dozen successful MGM musicals in the late 1930s and early 40s before retiring from the screen--save for a guest role in "The Duchess of Idaho" (1950). Typically cast as the determined hopeful whose talent and determination get her to the top, Powell was not a major actress, but she did display exuberance and a certain tongue-in-cheek charm, and her aggressive, androgynous dancing style made her as familiar a sight in top hat and tails as Fred Astaire.
