Cyd Charisse dies at 86


She danced with--and stole the scenes from--Astaire and Kelly, she acted for Minnelli and Ray (and Karlson), and she moved across the screen with the fluidity of liquid satin. We hear at If Charlie Parker deeply mourn the loss of the former Ms. Tula Ellice Finklea.

"Beautiful dynamite," indeed.
