kirkland's career really didn't going much before a 69/70 when she was a soloist at NYCB.
it's somewhat hard to believe that she'd have been chosen for a national ABC christmas special at so young an age and so early in her career, but that's only a guess on my part.
maybe others know more.
some of these telecasts seem to be on video cassette but none would seem to specifically identify THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL - but as noted i've only done a quick look for info.

Can you tell us more about what that dancer was doing, especially during those turns, and how it related to the story? How long was the segment? Was it merely background, or was it important to the story that Crosby was relating?

It is interesting, because today at 6:00 pm, I turned on the same channel, and saw Gelsey and Barishnikov dancing the Nutcracker with guest artists from the National Ballet of Canada. A very weird rendition in my opinion, but then again, I am used to the Balanchine version. It is such a treat to see ballet on television in general, let alone such old performances!
I hope this can shed some light on something!

I remember seeing her, in colour, on the Ed Sullivan Show, remarkable turns and all. Apparently that episode dates back to 1966, at which point she would have been about 13.Funny this was my guess also.
You can see the adult Joyce Cuoco as "Clara Cratchit" in Youri Vamos' Nutcracker/Christmas Carol hybrid with the Bonn Ballet.

From Wikipedia I clicked onto Cyd Charisse's "official" webpage. Its list of her tv credits does not include anything with "Crosby" or "Hollywood".
