Actress, Dancer, Classic Hollywood Beauty! She passed away today at Cedar Sinai, apparently of a heart attack. She was 86, and still looked as stunningly beautiful as ever.
Among her most memorable moments: Dancing with Fred Astaire in The Band Wagon and Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain
One of the most remarkable things about her: She remained married to the same man for 60 years! Rare in Hollywood, and as it's turning out, everywhere else as well.
As a boy, I watched a lot of classic movies, and I must say, when I saw her in Singin' in the Rain and The Band Wagon, I had an instant crush on her.
A true class-act!

May her memory be eternal!!!!
