astairical:

Fred Astaire talks about breaking the canes that he used as dance props in an interview, 1974.

(Fun fact: When filming the “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails” dance, 13 canes were ordered. Fred got frustrated every time he messed up and ended up breaking 12 of the canes. Shooting was completed with the last cane that they had.)
