By Nathalie Tomada

Sixty years ago, the West Side Story was born on Broadway.

Now, after three productions on Broadway, twice on London’s West End, a film version in 1961 that racked up 10 Oscars including Best Picture, various US, UK and international tours, and local adaptations such as in the Philippines, the dance musical remains a veritable stage favorite.

Rita Moreno remembers West Side Story's bold, subversive 'America'
The 85-year-old film legend talks about delicious dance moves, blingy costumes, and porny shops

Joe McGovern@jmcgvrn

In 1961, Rita Moreno achieved movie immortality with her performance as the no-nonsense Anita in West Side Story. Set within a vibrant Puerto Rican community in New York City (though filmed almost entirely in Los Angeles), the film won 10 Oscars, including best supporting actress for Moreno and best picture.

The actress, now 85 and earning raves for her work on Netflix’s One Day at a Time, talked to EW about the barnstorming song-and-dance number “America,” in which she jousts with her boyfriend (George Chakiris) about the pros and cons of their adopted home.
