Showtune Sunday: All About Rita Moreno!

Rita Moreno is one of the few performers to have WON all four major annual American entertainment awards – an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony – and pointed out to me last year that she is a legitimate EGOT because none of her awards are honorary. Not even Barbra Streisand or Liza Minnelli can say that!

Of course she’s best known for West Side Story, The King and I, The Ritz and Singin’ In the Rain on film) but as a kid I only knew her as that lady from The Electric Company. She’s still going strong as the grandma on the reboot of One Day at a Time.

One Remark

  1. Greg, I’ve been a big fan of Rita Moreno and early on like you I remember her well in “The Electric Company”, but I first remember her from “West Side Story” which I saw in theater one its re-release sometime in the mid-1960′s when I was a little boy. It’s amazing that for nearly six decades she remains relevant and still active. Love her!

    “Hey, you guys!”
