Born in Independence, Missouri, on July 16th, 1911, Ginger Rogers (whose real Christian name is Virginia), began her stage career in local shows when only twelve years of age. She was a natural dancer, and two years later was winning cups and medals, one contest giving her the reward of a month's tour in vaudeville. She remained on the stage, and gained great popularity in musical comedy, eventually winning stardom. Young Man of Manhattan made in New York, was her first film; later came a Hollywood contract. Recent films are Flying Down to Rio, Change of Heart, Upperworld and The Gay Divorce (sic).
