Memorable Quotations:

  • crying. "I've behaved horribly to you and I know it.  I'm not used to behaving horribly.  It's a big strain." --as Gaby Girard in THE BAND WAGON (1953).
  • "To save you the strain of trying to understand me, I'll give you the salient facts: graduate of Barnard, summa cum laude; career girl.  I'm fairly pretty (which is a nuisance).  I attract a lot of men at first, but I can always find a way of getting rid of them and then everybody's happy all around.  In short, I can always scare them off." --as Jackie Leighton in IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER (1955).
  • "Look.  Don't give me any two-bit, snap psychoanalysis.  Anyone can do it." --as Jackie Leighton in IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER (1955).

Further Reading:

  • The Two of Us by Tony Martin and Cyd Charisse; with Dick Kleiner (Mason/Charter, 1976).
