Rita’s Oscar statuette never gets lonely, for the acclaimed actress also has a Golden Globe, a Grammy, a Tony, and two Emmys. No wonder the Screen Actors Guild chose her for a Lifetime Achievement Award! She’s a versatile artist who can sing, dance, and do comedy and drama equally well. The Internet Movie Data Base lists over 140 film and TV acting credits for Rita. In addition to West Side Story and Singin’ in the Rain, she’s appeared in such films as The King and I, Carnal Knowledge, Marlowe, The Four Seasons, Pagan Love Song, The Ritz, Blue Moon, The Toast of New Orleans, Angus, and King of the Corner. She’s been in numerous popular television shows, and won Emmys for her outstanding work on The Muppet Show and The Rockford Files. Her autobiography Rita Moreno: A Memoir received rave reviews.
Also joining in the fun during this episode are film historian James Colt Harrison and Diana Saenger from Classic Movie Guide.
