Rita Moreno - 'Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It'
The first Latina ever to win an Oscar and one of only 16 EGOTs ever reflects on the stereotypical casting and abusive behavior she encountered as a Hollywood starlet, working on classics like 'Singin' in the Rain' and 'West Side Story' and why she is convinced that the latter's upcoming remake — in which she appears and on which she was an EP — will avoid the pitfalls that undid another recent movie musical about Latinos in America, 'In the Heights.'
