Last Dance

I think I could spend hours watching dance sequences from classic Hollywood movies. Tinsletown lost another famous dancer yesterday when Cyd Charisse passed away at the age of 86. Just do a search for her name on YouTube and knock yourself out, if her legs and routines don't do it for you first. She certainly held her own with the best male dancers in Hollywood including Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly in several classic MGM musicals. And she was gorgeous, too. Really makes me sick to think of the talentless dingalings we glorify today.

According to her offical site, Charisse danced in 22 movies between 1943 and 1966. Here's one that ABC featured at the end of their broadcast last night.

RIP, Cyd Charisse!
