Actor Meme - Fred Astaire [2/2] behind the scenes moments. 

When Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth rehearsed for their dances in the film You Were Never Lovelier (1942), they had to use a nearby funeral parlor, because there wasn’t adequate room at Columbia Studios. They had the studio to themselves on the weekends (they worked for six or seven days a week!), but usually, they were stuck at the parlor. Surprisingly, they managed to come up with creative and happy dances, despite the surroundings. An amusing incident happened during one of those practice sessions, as Fred says in his autobiography: 

Keeping the laughs going during the intervals was a part of the day’s work and I always tried to think up some gag to play on Rita. In one instance I called out, “Well—here we go—I’m beginning to like this place—it doesn’t get me down any more, I’m used to it—ready, Rita?”

Up jumped Rita at once and came to me to start our first step together. As I took hold of her two arms she let out one scream and backed away. I had just dipped both my hands and arms in a bucket of ice which we kept for Coca-Cola bottles. That broke up rehearsals for a half hour or so.”
