After explaining how he declined having his picture in Playboy three times, Astaire writes: " Perhaps you can understand now why I am amazed at the use of the photograph of me with a glass of champagne in my hand "Toasting the New Year." Obviously there is no harm done but I just want to point out to you that I really do not happen to like champagne."
