In her over three-hour interview, Rita Moreno talks about spending her early childhood in Puerto Rico before coming to the United States at the age of five. Moreno chronicles her early stage, film, and radio work, all done before her television debut in 1952. She speaks about her work on G.E. Theatre, Fireside Theatre, Climax, Matinee Theatre, Playhouse 90, and other live programs. She also speaks freely about her encounters with racism. Moreno discusses her many successes in theater and film, including an Oscar win for West Side Story, and continuing to work in television as a guest star on many programs afterward. She talks about how, in 1971, she began her five-year run as a regular on The Electric Company, a PBS children's program. She also details her then-recent work as a regular on HBO's drama series, Oz. Marla Miller conducted the interview on June 22, 2000 in San Francisco, CA.
