Did actor and famed ceiling-dancer Fred Astaire smoke cannabis? According to a BBC Radio 4 interview with singer Petula Clark, he did. 

Clark, best known for her hit single "Downtown," co-starred with Astaire in the 1968 musical Finian's Rainbow. As told by Civilized, Clark claims that not only did Astaire partake in everyone's favorite plant, but so did a number of other stars from the era. 

Here's Astaire, at 70 years old, breaking it down for the 1970 Oscars ceremony.
