Cyd Charisse passed away on June 17th of this year. I'll always remember her from The Silencers. She played Sarita in the first of Dean Martin's Matt Helm spy capers. She's only in the film a couple of times. I'm blown away by the introductory sequence to the movie. Cyd sexily struts around the stage as she lip synchs to the vocals of Vicki Carr. Wow! She was actually 45 at this time. Cyd got more beautiful the older she got.
Here's a clip of Cyd's performance in the intro of The Silencers:
Here are three photos of Cyd from the movie:
There is a clip of the entire intro scene of the movie. It's definitely worth checking out. You can click here for that clip. Embedding has been disabled on that clip so that's why I'm linking to it instead. By the way, does anyone know the name of the girl at the beginning of the number? I find her incredibly sexy. I have no clue who she is. I'm not even sure if she did anything else or not. Below is a picture of her from the movie. Thanks. Cheers!
