you guys how the fuck have i NEVER KNOWN that “you’re a real pal” Zelda was played by The Magnificent and Incomparable Rita Moreno??????????? as a 21-yr-old baby! only her 5th movie role, per imdb.
AND apparently she played Tuptim in The King and I (which like, if you have never watched this bizarre imperialist show read up on it first and revisit yer Harriet Beecher Stowe, and like WELP there’s another gem of golden-age musical POC-mashup casting nonsense) but the point is, R.M. was all over my childhood musicals and all these years I have just thought of her as Anita! I have been gravely in the wrong.
p.s. this adds a whole. other. level. to this slash scene with Lina Lamont…
