Talented dancer and beautiful.
Although he is not on the list I think Gene Kelly had a soft spot for her!
She was a beauty when she was young, and a very regal lady when she was older. I saw her on TCM with Robert Osborne. Very comfortable with herself.
What a loss! I`ve enjoyed her films for years and admired her long marriage to my first "movie star idol", singer Tony Martin as soon as I heard "Stranger In Paradise". My prayers are with him and their family.
I would like to know how she looked later in life. Not when she was popular as these photos I`ve seen before when she was at the height of popularity. Kindly put on pics of her as she aged. This would be most interesting to me and others.
I`ve admired Cyd Charisse most of my life, especially as Fiona in Brigadoon; as Fiona, she seemed everything sweet, beautiful, and talented, the perfect Scottish lassie.
she was a great dancer.
