Top 10 Entertainment Predictions That Turned Out (10 person items)

BING CROSBY "But when you're in a picture with Astaire, you've got rocks in your head if you do much dancing. He's so quick-footed and so light that it's impossible not to look like a hay-digger compared with him." GINGER ROGERS "We had fun and it shows. True, we were never bosom buddies off the screen; we"
