The lovely Cyd Charisse


Recommended Posts

If I remember it correctly, Nicholas Ray's "Party Girl: is sort of racy. It's coming up soon on TCM, so we can check it out. She let loose a little in "Two Weeks In Another Town", and also in "Twilight For The Gods" with Rock Hudson. I agree she's a class act, but she took some chances too.

I have a gorgeous rare one sheet from the film which I had framed. I think it may have been printed when the film was roadshown. The three leading ladies, Shearer, Charisse & Jeanmaire are seen as blowup figures and Chevalier in the lower right. The most common poster I have seen for the film in oddly enough in B&W and features Charisse alone on the poster
