One of the main reasons I'll sit down and watch West Side Story whenever it's on is because of George.And the image of that one male dancer walking up between his legs was no accident.I wish I was THAT dancer.
Well, you can't watch WSS for Natalie and Richard, that's for sure ! I always imagined there was some of sexual tension between George's character and the character played by Russ Tamblyn. And George is still alive and enjoying himself so I say hooray ! for him.
For some reason, when I was young I'd always confuse George Chakiris with George Maharis. Actually I still sometimes do!
I was exactly the same confusing the two of them, until I actually worked with George Maharis one time (during my dinner theatre days,) Let's just say George Maharis was not happy about being a dinner theatre actor.
I met him once (Charkiris, not Maharis.) He had fabulously jet black hair.
I'm hearing Donna Summer muzak, yet what I'm watching appears to be a low-rent reinterpretation of the landmark "Prisencolinensinainciusol" video. Most confusing...
And he has his own safety gays! I love the part where the lay on the floor and throw their legs in the air. What could have inspired that?
They loved to love him, baby! Jx
