    More Details Hide Details
  • 1979
    Age 82
    Afterwards, Adele lived in Phoenix, Arizona, and continued, until 1979, to summer at the castle in Ireland she had shared with her first husband.
    More Details Hide Details Unlike her brother, Adele was extremely gregarious and took great delight in shocking friends and strangers alike. Even when in later years beset by illness, she had enormous recuperative powers, and, according to her stepson Kingman Douglass Jr., "she soon would be up and in Marine-type English telling what she thought of the world."
  • 1972
    Age 75
    In 1972, Fred and Adele Astaire were inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.
    More Details Hide Details Adele Astaire died in Scottsdale Memorial Hospital, Scottsdale, Arizona, after suffering a stroke. She was 84. Her remains were interred in the Oakwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Chatsworth, California. Built in 1905, the Gottlieb Storz House in Omaha includes the "Adele and Fred Astaire Ballroom" on the top floor, which is the only memorial to their Omaha roots. At the suggestion of Roddy McDowall, Astaire donated her papers and memorabilia—amounting to several trunks of material—to the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
  • FIFTIES
  • 1947
    Age 50
    On April 20, 1947, Adele Cavendish married her second husband, Col. Kingman Douglass, an American investment banker and Air Force officer who was an Assistant Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
    More Details Hide Details He died in 1971.
  • FORTIES
  • 1937
    Age 40
    In 1937 Adele began filming in England with Jack Buchanan and Maurice Chevalier but withdrew after two days.
    More Details Hide Details She later recalled: "Oh boy, if my brother Fred sees this—I'm gone". There is no known film record of Adele performing (aside from a clip lasting a few seconds), but she made eight audio recordings, all duets with either Fred, George Vollaire or Bernard Clifton. On May 9, 1932, after a successful stint with Fred in the revue The Band Wagon (1931) on Broadway, Adele Astaire retired from the stage to marry Lord Charles Cavendish, the second son of the 9th Duke of Devonshire, and moved to Ireland, where they lived at Lismore Castle. She had three children, a daughter in 1933 and twin sons in 1935, all of whom died soon after birth. By this marriage, she was properly styled Lady Charles Cavendish and would have been called Lady Charles in social circumstances. Her husband died in 1944, aged 38, of long-term alcoholism. Following his death, she turned down an offer from Irving Berlin to return to the stage in Annie Get Your Gun.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1936
    Age 39
    She visited Hollywood and appeared in January 1936 on the Music Variety Show, but she admitted to feeling intimidated by her brother's reputation.
    More Details Hide Details During their partnership, Fred, whose perfectionism earned him the nickname "Moaning Minnie" from her, had always been the dominant creative force.
  • 1935
    Age 38
    After Fred Astaire's success in Hollywood, Adele gave serious consideration in 1935 to making a musical film there.

  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1905
    Age 8
    In 1905 Adele Astaire had a successful vaudeville act with her younger brother, Fred Astaire.
    More Details Hide Details After 1917 they developed it into a celebrated adult career on Broadway and, beginning in 1923, on the London stage. Adele was the bigger and more charismatic star of the two during their time performing together. Peter Pan creator J. M. Barrie asked Adele to play his creation; contractual reasons forced her to turn down the part. Back in New York the duo appeared in Jerome Kern's The Bunch and Judy (1922), and then the Gershwin brothers' first Broadway collaboration Lady, Be Good!, followed by their Funny Face. Both were hits in America and in London.
