Amazing shot! Who would've thought enough to take this one?

I'm sure an RKO publicity shutterbug was on hand. Astaire got to rehearse with Ginger Rogers so rarely (she was such good box office in those days that the studio always had her working on other films while the musicals were being prepared) that either Sandrich or Hermes Pan or . . . anybody around the lot, just about, had to act as choregraphic stand-in.
