This is a real treat. It's a 1957 broadcast of the original stars of West Side Story -- Larry Kert and Carol Lawrence -- re-creating two of the most famous songs from the show, "Maria" and "Tonight," in full costume and sets. And in color (though very faded at this point).
I'm not sure where it's from. The most obvious guess is The Ed Sullivan Show, but the stage looks significantly larger than we're used to seeing on that show, and the sets are a bit more elaborate. But..it could be.
Ultimately, of course, what matters most is that the footage exists.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
