    Although Adele Astaire is little known today, Fred's elder sister was the more famous and celebrated of the siblings' double act, which achieved international stardom in the 1920s. This biography tells the story of the Omaha vaudeville entertainers who became the toast of Broadway and the West End in musicals such as Lady, Be Good! and Funny Face, and gives recognition to the importance of a theatrical career often overlooked because of Fred's tremendous later success in film.
