This is a picture of Rita Moreno who played Anita in the Broadway and movie versions of West Side Story. Anita, a feisty, mature, and sassy Latina woman, is a dancer in the show. Rita is one of my idols and Anita is one of the greatest roles ever created.
West Side Story is a 1961 musical film directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. The film is an adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical of the same name, which in turn was adapted from William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet.
