When Cyd Charisse was a child, she contracted polio. During her recovery for the potentially crippling disease, her parents enrolled her in dance classes. They thought the physical activity would help strengthen her muscles and prevent lingering mobility issues. They didn’t know that Cyd would excel at dancing and turn it into a lucrative career. Nearly every movie she appeared in required her to show off her dancing chops and the 1956 film, Meet Me in Las Vegas was no exception. In fact, the movie was written expressly for her and was meant to showcase her modern ballet style of dance.

Did you know that music wasn’t Bob Marley’s only passion? The Jamaican reggae singer and musician was also involved in association football, which we know better as soccer. In fact, soccer played an important role in his life. He played the sport whenever he could and sometimes even kicked the ball around in the recording studio. He was a huge fan of the English football organization, the Tottenham Hot spurs and the team’s midfielder, Ossie Ardiles, an Argentinian. He immersed himself in the soccer scene and hung around professional soccer players. In 1970, he hired former Jamaican footballer Allan ‘Skill’ Cole to be his tour manager.
