Just a few among many of Cyd Charisse's best movie dances, in SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, THE BAND WAGON, DEEP IN MY HEART, BRIGADOON, IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER, and SILK STOCKINGS, featuring Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, and James Mitchell, in films directed by Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly, Rouben Mamoulian, and Vincente Minnelli. Choreography by Gene Kelly, Michael Kidd, Eugene Loring, and Hermes Pan. This montage was first shown, along with costume sketches (by Mary Ann Nyberg, Walter Plunkett, Helen Rose, and Irene Sharaff) of the above-mentioned musical numbers, in the exhibition I curated in Paris in 2018: COMÉDIES MUSICALES, LA JOIE DE VIVRE DU CINÉMA (MOVIE MUSICALS, A GLORIOUS FEELING) at the Philharmonie de Paris.
Most beautiful build and legs

The petticoat scene at I1odYVx6Nok&t=4m00s 4:00 is sexier than a thong or what have you. She’s wearing more clothes than a full one piece swimsuit, but the see-through panels on the skirt give it the “we’re seeing something risqué!” feeling. Great dancer, gorgeous legs. Thanks for posting!
Really good. So versatile, so graceful, so effortless.
Very nice compilation of the most beautiful, talented, and athletic dancer! I like how you ended with Silk Stockings...Cyd doing what she loved most; ballet!
She is my favorite, too!
I just watched "Meet Me in Las Vegas" again where she showed off her beautiful ballet skill perfection.
Thank you for these wonderful clips!
