It is being reported that the dancer and actress Cyd Charisse has died. One of the giant sex symbols of the 50s, she was a classically trained dancer (before her Hollywood work, she actually toured with the Ballets Russes) with legs that seemed to go on forever. The clip above shows her heart-stopping turn in an otherwise forgettable extraneous sequence in Singin' in the Rain. Rest in peace.
