“Fred Astaire was a perfectionist. At rehearsal
when you thought you’d got it perfect he would
say, “Go on, Annie, just one more time!” What
I wouldn’t give to do it just one more time.”
Ann Miller Quotes
“I have worked like a dog all my life, honey.
Dancing, as Fred Astaire said, is next to ditch
digging. You sweat and you slave and the audience
doesn’t think you have a brain in your head.”
Ann Miller in a 1977 interview.
“At MGM, I always played the second feminine lead. I was
never the star in films. I was the brassy, good-hearted
showgirl. I never really had my big moment on the screen.
Broadway gave me the stardom that my soul kind of yearned for.”
