Bombshell on the Big Screen – Cyd alert!
THE BAND WAGON, Glasgow Film Theatre, Sun Jan 24, 4.30pm
Cyd Charisse, our favourite leggy bombshell, positively smoulders in the famous Mickey Spillane-inspired dance number in this classic 1953 MGM musical.
Having danced with Gene Kelly in the previous year’s Singin’ in the Rain – who could forget her legs-first entrance in the Broadway Melody ballet? – Cyd pulled off a double whammy by partnering Fred Astaire, the original dancing legend of the silver screen, in this glorious musical extravaganza which was stylishly directed by Vincente Minnelli.
