Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Cyd Charisse (March 8, 1922 – June 17, 2008):


The Bandwagon is my favorite musical of all time. Great dark smart moody Minnelli. Astaire is a genius; Cyd Charisse has long been too hot to be appreciated enough; Fabray and Levant are hilarious; and Jack Buchanon completely astounded me. I think I underwent subtle genetic alteration having seen the Triplets scene at perhaps too early an age; if I did, it was for the better. Long live Cyd! And all of us.

Marvelous score by Schwartz and Dietz, and yes, Cyd's legs do go on forever. Did you know she was married to the same man (singer Tony Martin)for sixty years -- from 1948 until her death? Lucky guy.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
