Watch Fred Astaire And Cyd Charisse Beautifully In Sync During Their Passionate Dance On ‘The Band Wagon’
Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse were actors during the golden age of old Hollywood glamour and musicals. Cyd Charisse was an incredible talent who performed with Gene Kelly in the “Broadway Ballet” sequence in Singing in the Rain. She then went on to star alongside Fred Astaire in the classic film The Band Wagon.
In this scene, Astaire dances his way into a lounge. He shows off his impressive moves with the other well-suited men. Charisse’s character sees him from across the bar and wants to get in on the action. She removes her dark green coat to reveal her red beaded flapper dress and elegant black elbow-length gloves.
She saunters over to Astaire, who stands in awe of the beauty. He attempts to hide his pistol inside his suit jacket and proceeds to dance with Charisse. The pair never misses a beat as they are in sync throughout the entire dance. This level of dancing and entertainment doesn’t exist anymore.
