“Baby, You Knock Me Out”

The number “Baby, You Knock Me Out” (from It’s Always Fair Weather, 1955) “redefines to some degree what was permissible for the times in female attractiveness by highlighting [Miss Leighton’s/Cyd Charisse’s] intelligence as well as her impressive physical manifestations, her activity more than her passivity.” — Bruce Babington and William Evans, 1985
