Starting as a child act on the vaudeville circuit, supporting flame-throwers and performing seals, the Astaires had developed into slick, serviceable "dancing comedians". Their big break came in when they appeared in Stop Flirting on Shaftesbury Avenue. Although the piece hadn't been tailor-made, it played to their strengths.
