“I remember all of these words,” Rita Moreno confessed to Lola Ogennaike as she watched a clip from 1961’s West Aspect Story throughout PeopleTV’s new collection, Sofa Browsing. And that wasn’t all of the EGOT-winner remembers concerning the basic movie.

“At the very end of ‘America,’ all the girls get pushed up into the air and land on the boy’s shoulders,” Moreno recalled of filming the scene she described as “the most fabulous dance number in life.” “We had never rehearsed in our costumes until we went to actually film it. George’s suit was made of silk; my gown, my dress was made of silk. And my behind was broader than George [Chakiris]’s shoulder. Are you getting the picture? … I was trying to get one cheek there and I could not get it accomplished.”

After all, Moreno ultimately nailed it — however not earlier than creating just a little frustration on set.

“We must’ve done about 25 takes. I think those kids were ready to just kill me,” she stated. “I could not keep my ass up on his shoulder… I finally dug this foot into his back as hard as I could. I probably hurt him forever.”

Steven Spielberg would possibly wish to take notes earlier than he reunites The Sharks and the Jets.
