GEORGE CHAKIRIS

George Chakiris made his film debut at the age of 12 singing in the chorus of Song of Love (1947). Following his graduation from high school, he supported his night-time dancing, singing and dramatic lessons with a daytime job clerking in a Los Angeles department store. Later he started his acting/dancing career appearing in musicals such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) – he is one of the ballet dancers escorting Marilyn Monroe in “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” – White Christmas (1954), The Girl Rush (1955), There’s No Business Like Show Business (1954), Brigadoon (1954), and Meet Me in Las Vegas (1956). In 1957, he made his debut as a dramatic actor in Under Fire (1957). In 1958 he traveled to New York hoping for a Broadway "break." Hearing that Jerome Robbins was casting the London company of "West Side Story," he auditioned and was awarded the co-starring role of Riff. He played the part for almost two years on the West End stage before acting, singing and dancing as Bernardo in the Robert Wise film version (West Side Story (1961)), a performance that earned him a Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

AUDREY DALTON

Dublin-born Audrey Dalton knew right from childhood that she wanted to be an actress: She appeared in school plays and (after the family's move to London) applied to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. While Dalton was at RADA, a London-based Paramount executive saw her in a play and asked her to audition for the upcoming film The Girls of Pleasure Island (1953). Winning the part (and a Paramount contract), Dalton arrived in the U.S. in 1952 and co-starred in "Pleasure Island"; the studio loaned her out to 20th Century-Fox for My Cousin Rachel (1952) and Titanic (1953). Among the cult classics she starred or co-starred are Kitten With a Whip (1964 with Ann-Margret), The Monster That Challenged the World (1957), and William Castle's Mr. Sardonicus (1961). Dalton later freelanced, working in films and on television.

 

"I found working on film was much easier because the preparation was less intense," she later recalled. "In making a movie you could concentrate on each day's work instead of being concerned with the entire play. Also, in film so much depends on the visual . . . A lot of what you do in the theater is much broader than on film, so I had to learn to tone down my work when I began working in movies."
