Cyd Charisse

Cyd Charisse, the beautiful, leggy dancer of Hollywood movie fame who tripped the light fantastic with such screen partners as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, died on June 17th at age 87. She was trained as a ballerina with the Ballet Russe when she was only a teenager. But she is best remembered for her work in such MGM musicals as The Band Wagon, Brigadoon, Singin’ in the Rain, and Silk Stockings. She is survived by her second husband, singer Tony Martin.
