I primarily started to watch this to see who Cyd Charisse was. I heard a lot about her through the years, and know she passed away this year to much fanfare. So I wanted to check her out.
This movie was perhaps not the best movie to try to showcase her talents. Let me start by saying Im not a huge fan of the Musical genre to begin with. I often find their plots to be lacking and contrived. This one was no different.
Cyd was indeed very beautiful and a talented dancer. Her acting was so-so, however. I guess I just don't find loosely strung together numbers with no real plot to tie everything together a waste of time.
