Out of stock
Cyd Charisse entered films in the 1940s. Her roles usually focused on her abilities as a dancer, and she was paired with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly; her films include Signin’ in the Rain (1952), The Band Wagon (1953), Brigadoon with Gene Kelly and Van Johnson (1954) and Silk Stockings (1957). She stopped dancing in films in the late 1950s, but continued acting in film and television, and in 1992 made her Broadway debut. In her later years, she discussed the history of the Hollywood musical in documentaries, and was featured in That’s Entertainment III in 1994. She was awarded the National Medal of the Arts and Humanities in 2006.
Presented is a black and white 11×14 photo of Charisse autographed in blue felt tip (“8”). Overall, a nice studio shot of the star.

They also had thousands of vintage Hollywood photographs.
