Latino Images in Film: Rita Moreno

All month long, Turner Classic Movies has spotlighting Latino Images in Film as part of their Race & Hollywood series. In addition to airing an amazing lineup of classic and contemporary films featuring Latino actors and cultural storylines, they have also taped interviews with actors such as Edward James Olmos, Hector Elizondo, Rita Moreno, and John Saxon. I absolutely loved the interview with Rita Moreno, in which she discusses stereotypes and getting (or not getting) certain roles.

Watch the video with Rita.

I love Rita! She was, by far, the best part of West Side Story.
