Photography by Ian L. Sitren

They Said Rita Moreno!

When I was asked to be the stills photographer on the movie “Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks” I asked who was going to be in it. Gena Rowlands and Rita Moreno were two of the answers. When would I ever have the opportunity to photograph these extraordinary individuals of motion pictures!

Rita Moreno won her Oscar for her role in the motion picture “West Side Story”. Perhaps that does not mean much to you younger than I, but to me it leaves me speechless. “West Side Story” is certainly the great American Opera. The music written by the great composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein. The movie an adaptation brought to life by the greatest names in music and theatre and entertainment. There are no words to describe this incredible and legendary motion picture.

Rita Moreno herself is one of the very few performers to win an Oscar, a Tony, a Grammy and an Emmy. One of the absolute greatest of the world we call entertainment. So when they asked, I said YES!
