Those legs!

Look at those legs! It's a shame the youngsters among us have no clue about what a talent she was. She was amazing, and nearing the last of a line.

Agreed. Such a gorgeous woman and amazing talent. She'll be missed!

Oh, no! :(

Singin' in the Rain is in my top three movies of all time. I love watching her in that. I'll put in the DVD tonight in honor of her. She was truly amazing.

Oh hi, formerly anonymous commenter, LOL! :)

And yeah, I love that movie. That dance scene with her is my favorite part of the whole film.

Hahah, I didn't know if that went through or not! That's what I get for letting the computer sit for hours. It must have logged me out.

And yes, hands down the best part of the movie (Although, I do love the banter in the beginning).

Yeah, she'll be missed. I think the only one of the cast still alive now is Debbie Reynolds. (She was only 19 when she did the film, I believe.) Gene brought in Cyd for the more sophisticated dance sequence because Debbie wasn't really good enough for it!

And she was only 5'6". :-) I loved her best with Astaire. Awesome, awesome talent.

Wow, I thought she was taller. And I love her in Silk Stockings -- or anything, really!
