Cyd Charisse, the gorgeous ballet dancer who graced the cinema at MGM with Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire has passed...What a beauty! May she rest in peace...

The Boston Globe has an obituary written by Mary Rourke of the LA Times: Cyd Charisse, 86; her dancing and glamour lit up movie screens

I have fond memories of watching her in old movies my dad force fed me as a teen, to his credit. I always thought she was so much classier than everyone she was on screen with, even Astaire. She left us a great legacy.

An appreciation by Ty Burr in the Boston Globe: From ballet to movies, Cyd Charisse was a cool classic

I was discussing this with my husband the other day. His comment..."She was HOT!" I think in a way ballet dancers nowadays are not. A great loss.
