    ^ Thank you so much for the link to the video clips. I don't think I had ever seen that one with Nureyev's in 1962 before.

    She was a wonderful dancer -- and an icon and patroness of dance long after she retired. RIP, Ms. Tallchief.

    skatingfan, that "Bell Telephone Hour" appearance -- and they were often done "live" -- was Nureyev's American debut,
