Latinx Lens

Aug 22, 2020

In this episode, we highlight Rita Moreno, living legend and ground breaker for the Latinx community. She's one of 16 people to have achieved the prestigious EGOT distinction: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award winner. 

We discuss her Oscar-winning role Anita in WEST SIDE STORY (1961), THE RITZ (1976) where she reprised her Tony award-winning role as Googie Gomez, and her TV roles in GOLDEN GIRLS (Season 2, Episode 26) and ONE DAY AT A TIME (Season 1, Ep 1 and Ep 2). 

Our Latinx Recommend Film Review: MARIA CANDELARIA (1944) starring Dolores del Río and Pedro Armendáriz and recommend our next film.
