NOTES

Nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor in "The Towering Inferno" (1974).

Katharine Hepburn's sardonic explanation of the magic of the Astaire-Rogers partnership: "She gives him sex and he gives her class."

"If I'm the Marlon Brando of dance, he's Cary Grant". --Gene Kelly

"He can give people pleasure just by walking across the floor." --Gene Kelly
