  2. Marvelous review! I love this film and you perfectly expressed why. I’m also glad that you appreciate Charisse’s performance — too many people like to criticize her acting and I think Silk Stockings gets the worst of it because Charisse dared to take on a role that the great Garbo immortalized. Personally, I find her charming here; indeed, it might be her best work.

    Thanks for contributing this wonderful post to our blogathon!

    • Thanks for having me! Yes, I suppose with these musicals I never get so caught up with the acting because it’s the dancing that’s really indicative of the characters for me. That’s how they truly express themselves whether it’s Astaire & Rogers together or Cyd Charisse in this one.
