This chapter begins with Walters and John Darrow building a house in Malibu Beach, and concisely discusses the development of Malibu Colony. Most of this chapter is devoted to the making of The Barkleys of Broadway (1949), which reunited Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers on-screen (after a ten year hiatus) when Judy Garland was removed from the picture. The film co-stars Oscar Levant, with choreography by Hermes Pan and Robert Alton.

Keywords:   Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Ginger Rogers, Hermes Pan, Oscar Levant, Robert Alton
