This Is How I Get Ready for Tango

No, I'm kidding. My room isn't that big. ;-)

I thought it would be nice to share some more Cyd Charisse clips with you since you guys liked the last one so much.

This clip is actually my very favorite Cyd Charisse scene ever. It's from Silk Stockings, a film she stars in with Fred Astaire. It's a musical remake of the Ernst Lubitsch film Ninotchka starring Greta Garbo.

Click this: Part Two, because you can't get too much of this kind of beauty.

what an amazing clip...could she be any more beautiful? and those legs. wow.

I know. The first time I saw that scene I totally bawled. She is so so so lovely.

That is just plain redonkulous. I am in awe. What a beauty.

Ndoubt about it, Cyd Charisse was one in a billion. The lady had LEGS

Gorgeous! She had the legs to justify being so obsessed about her stockings. ;) (Although, you know, I might have to start leaving my undergarments strewn around the room just so that I can dance around like that while getting dressed! heehee!)

There's even a version of that ornament I always wish I could pull off - about 1.50.

re: the whole cyd thing...i'm not gonna go there...

Hi p,

Redonkulous. That is a word that is instantly going into my vocabulary! I am still so stoked about finding your blog. I have to pay another visit.

Hi AnnieElf,

Welcome back! Her legs, and pretty much the rest of her, was spectacular.

Hi ModernTanguera,

I think that's a great idea and I dare you to make a little dressing video to share with us. What song will you pick?! heh heh.

Hi Psyche,

I will have to go back and check out what you saw.

Hi Alex,

Even if I can't dance with you, at least I can take pleasure in making you laugh, right?

Thank you for appreciating my sense of humor!

She keeps her stuff in the oddest places...

Yeah, I guess being a Communist-era apparatchik in Paris might make you want to hide your black market silk underthings.

Now where did I put those stockings again?

Koolricky, you are a very cute person.

What a gorgeous woman and great gams on her. I've been looking for a girl with legs like that and I think I found her. Even looks a bit like Cyd Charisse. I don't think Delany Decolleur will go out with me, but I like to look at her pics anyways. Maybe she will Tango with me? I could just see us dancing till dawn.

Hi anonymous,

Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm with you...Cyd Charisse is one beautiful and classy dancer. Of all the dancers of her generation, she is the most perfect in my mind. My next pick would be Rita Hayworth, but Cyd just steals my heart.

You should watch the clip I have here called Glorious Technicolor Goddess, where she is dancing with Gene Kelly. Amazingly beautiful and sexy!
