Rita has bashed Natalie’s performance for years, pretty much citing the same complaints all the time. I was shocked a few years back when after attending a screening of the film with other cast members she said she was sorry that Natalie was not there to see how beloved the movie has remained over the years. It was the only time I ever heard her imply that Natalie might actually be one of the reasons people are so fond of the film.

Because none of this was new to me, I was more struck by her saying “yes, the movie really does go there”, or something to that effect, when talking about revisions we will see in the remake. As this comment followed a reference to Tony Kushner, it made me think we were likely to see a gayer West Side Story. Maybe some beefed up time for Anybodys? Maybe someone else? We shall see.
