And here’s some sad news….. Movie star and dancer, Cyd Charisse, passed away today at the age of 86. Her publicist said she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles yesterday after she suffered an apparent heart attack.
She was born Tula Ellice Finklea on March 8, 1921. She starred in such films as “Ziegfeld Follies,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “The Band Wagon,” “Brigadoon” and “Silk Stockings.” Band Wagon was always one of my favorites. You should definitely NetFlix it if you haven’t seen it.
She is survived by her husband of almost 60 years, Tony Martin, and her 2 children.
Rest in peace, Cyd…..
