TCM has 12 films featuring the dancer-actress. A bit of trivia: her real name was Tula Ellice Finklea. Now that is a reason to change a name if I ever saw one.
Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
Cyd’s breakthrough film. When MGM needed a stronger dancer for a 15-minute number, Cyd was given the role of a sultry moll who toys with Gene Kelly’s emotions.
The Band Wagon (1953)
Cyd is a ballerina who teams up with movie dancer Fred Astaire in his comeback role on Broadway.
Cyd is caught up in the disintegrating marriage of Richard Baseheart and Audrey Totter.
