Ginger Rogers, one of the iconic stars of Hollywood’s “Golden Age,” was born 110 years ago this week, on July 16, 1911. The career of the actress, dancer and singer spanned decades. In the fall of 1991, Rogers visited the WGN Radio studios to visit with Roy Leonard and discuss her book, GingerMy Story. Here is that segment, which also features an appearance from “Dances with Wolves” author and screenwriter Michael Blake.
