An Evening With Fred Astaire





 1958 | NBC Television

Television Special Award: Fred Astaire is one of a handful of stars of stage, screen, and television who approaches perfection. His special 1958 television show—repeated by genuine acclaim—was a case in point. It set a standard for television entertainment and good taste that will remain unchallenged for a long time to come. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that this Peabody Special Award is presented to An Evening With Fred Astaire.
