She was extraordinarily beautiful. When I watched brief glimpses of her performances in the Ballet Russe film, her style and technique seemed beyond the times to me...a truly great dancer. I loved her interviews in the Ballet Russe film. She was so charming, lively and animated! What a treasure! May she rest in peace. She will be greatly missed...
