„Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.“

—  Ginger Rogers American actress and dancer 1911 - 1995
The line originated in a 1982 Frank and Ernest cartoon ( image http://www.reelclassics.com/Actresses/Ginger/ginger-article2.htm) by Bob Thaves as "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, ...backwards and in high heels." On the internet and in many publications the line is incorrectly attributed to Faith Whittlesey (see ). The official Ginger Rogers website http://www.gingerrogers.com/about/quotes.html attributes the line to Thaves.
