Cyd Charisse: Beautiful Dynamite

 

Cyd Charisse


 

Cyd Charisse was, in my opinion,  the most beautiful and elegant  dancer to ever grace the silver screen. She is also one of six women to have danced with both Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly in a movie.

Fred Astaire in his 1959 memior, “Steps In Time”, referred to Cyd Charisse as “beautiful dynamite”. Fred also went on to say of Cyd,” That Cyd! When you’ve danced with Cyd, you stay danced with”.

 Gene Kelly was also very enamored with Cyd Charisse as a dancing partner.  “She wasn’t a tap dancer, she was just beautiful. trained, very strong in whatever we did,” said Kelly, “When we were dancing, we didn’t know what time it was.”

Cyd’s legs during her career, were said at one time to have been insured for up to five million dollars.
