Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno, The legendary star of stage and screen for over 50 years shares her remarkable story for the first time in her new self-titled book.

One of the few artists to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, Rita Moreno has been breaking down barriers and blazing trails for more than 50 years. From her Oscar-winning turn as Anita in "West Side Story" to her challenging role as a prostitute in "Carnal Knowledge", from her stint on the children's television classic "Electric Company" to her late-career triumph in HBO's controversial series "Oz," Moreno has proven to be a true Hollywood survivor.
