Ms. Charisse said that her husband, Mr. Martin, always knew whom she had been dancing with. “If I was black and blue,” she said, “it was Gene. And if it was Fred, I didn’t have a scratch.”
The dancer and classic film star Cyd Charisse from a 2002 interview, quoted this morning in her obituary in the New York Times.
Cyd Charisse passed away on Tuesday at the age of 86.
