I got an impression that she wasn't so much an actress as a ballet dancer when I watched musical movies such
as "Singin' in the Rain"(1952) and "The Band Wagon"(1953). Actually, it seems that she was
trained to be a ballet dancer, and it wouldn't be so wrong if I said that her raison detre of being in those musical
movies, at least firstly, wasn't in her singing, but in her dancing. Even so, as she was indeed a very buautiful
actress and had quite a well-proportioned body and body balance probably coming from the fact that she had been
trained to be a ballet dancer, her presence in any movie was quite impressive.
