This pretty pink wool coat was designed by William Travilla for Betty Grable to wear as the character ‘Stormy Tornado’ in her last film How to Be Very, Very Popular in 1955. In 1978, in the seventh season episode of M*A*S*H entitled Major Ego, Jamie Farr wore the coat as Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger.
Because Farr’s character was often seen cross-dressing, he wore a number of costumes that had earlier been donned by the stars of the then 20th Century Fox Studio. Farr is known to have worn at least one other gown previously worn by Grable, as well as a Cleopatra costume that had once been worn by Ginger Rogers. 
A wonderful article from The National Museum of American History, who currently owns the coat writes that:
In 1979 Farr wore another Ginger Rogers dress, not owned by the museum, that the actress recognized from years before. Miss Rogers was at the studio filming a Love Boat episode (Season 3, Episode 10), and they ran into each other in the 20th Century Fox canteen while breaking for lunch.
According to Farr, she got quite a kick out of it, telling him, "I saw the show where you wore my outfit and, I have to tell ya, it looked a helluva lot better on you than it did on me."

42nd STREET (1933) dir. Lloyd Bacon
Ginger Rogers in her breakout role as Anytime Annie.
“In contrast to the fantasy, escapist romantic dance musicals of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers that also began in the same year (Flying Down to Rio (1933)), this film was an unglamorized look at the tough realities of backstage life behind the footlights. The urban milieu of the film is filled with crisp, slangy, bitter dialogue and wisecracks, street-wise characters, topical references, desperately-striving chorines, dancers, and crew, and down-and-out references to the Depression.” (Tim Dirks, Filmsite Movie review, January 1 2000)

This is gonna be quite long... and funny, hopefully. 
I was rewatching my favorite duels on the tube, this morning, and this thought occurred to me. 
Ewan McGregor is the Ginger Rogers of Star Wars. 
Yeah, I know, listen. This is our beloved Obi-Wan Kenobi, jedi master, the Master of Soresu, great lightsaber duelist, amazing fighter and all, look at him. How fast, and powerful, and lethal, yeah. I love him, right. We all do, I know.

He was amazing from the start, so good that he’s the first jedi and padawan to kill a sith in a thousand years, and he’s the master of Soresu, so good that he gives way, against Anakin, hoping to get him so tired to talk to him out of the dark side. What a jedi, what a warrior. 
Fine. 
Then, we have Ewan McGregor, so good at it that they had to slow down the duel with amazing Ray Park because it was so fast that nobody would believe it. Look at them. 
Tumblr media
Let’s not forget that Ray Park is an actual martial artist, and he was in his prime during this film, and they were so good and fast that the fight is perfectly believable. A choreography, but a perfect one. Two dancers in synch. 
And with Hayden? Look at them. Fast, precise, and Ewan is always walking backwards. 
Tumblr media
the most amazing thing to me is that is Ewan actually deciding the pace, because Hayden can’t be too fast or he’ll risk to hurt Ewan, and can’t be too slow, or he’ll miss the beat. And in all this, Ewan is walking backwards, without ever looking, and without missing a beat. 
Ginger Rogers would have been so proud of Ewan.
