Do you ever get tired of constantly being linked with Fred Astaire? I know we weren’t born Siamese twins, but sometimes you’d think we were. Wherever I go people ask, “Hey, where’s Fred?” He gets a little bored being asked about me all the time, too. We are great friends with tremendous affection for one another. He’s charming, gentle, shy and the perfect performer—my idea of a super man.

Chorus girl, Hope Chandler, in the dressing room backstage at the Paradise cabaret restaurant in New York City, 1937. Photo by Peter Stackpole.
This photo was featured on the cover of LIFE Magazine when she was just 16 years of age and was named the “Prettiest Girl in Paradise”. David Whitmire Hearst, son of William Randolph Hearst, noticed her on the cover and promised that he would marry her before she was snatched up by another suitor. They married in 1938 and they remained together happily for 48 years until his death in 1986. Hope passed away in January 2012.
