Larry Kert

1. – Richard Beymer, West Side Story, 1961. “When transposing a successful Broadway show to the screen, you can’t please everybody,” declared producer Walter Mirisch. “If you use the cast of the original, your’e criticised. If you don’t, you’re criticised. I’ve done it both ways.” This time, he felt Kert and his stage Maria, Carol Lawrence, “were both too old by then to repeat their roles.”
