UCLA to Host An Evening with George Chakiris, 11/16
by BWW News Desk - Oct 16, 2013

UCLA Film & Television Archive salutes the extraordinary career of actor, singer and dancer George Chakiris in this exciting screening and discussion. Trained in Los Angeles, Chakiris first distinguished himself as a dancer in Hollywood films, displaying an athleticism and grace that helped bring renown to West Coast dance styles. Best known for his Academy Award-winning performance in West Side Story (1961), Chakiris has enjoyed a multi-faceted, international career on stage, screen and television. This program assembles a selection of his sparkling television appearances drawn from the Archive's holdings, including excerpts from "The Garry Moore Show" (1961), "The Dinah Shore Chevy Show" (1962) and "The Andy Williams Show" (1967), followed by a screening of Jacques Demy's The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967), foregrounding Chakiris' command of song, dance…and our attention. Chakiris won a Golden Globe and an Oscar for the role of Bernardo in the film and in Nov 2012, Chakiris received what many refer to as the highest honor in Hollywood - His Hand & Foot Prints were placed in cement (with colleagues Rita Moreno and Russ Tamblyn and placed along side friend and co-star, Natalie Wood) for all history in connection with the 50th anniversary of classic film West Side Story which premiered at Grauman's 50 years ago.
