I was on West Side Story's page on imdb.com and reading the tid-bits, when I found out some of the actors and actresses considered for the role of Maria and Tony were Elvis Presley and Audrey Hepburn, but she turned the role down because she was pregnant. Now I can't help but wonder what the film would have been like if they were the stars of the film. Though I'd rather have Natalie Wood play Maria because she's the best =)

Also, didn't Natalie try to get Richard fired so Warren Beatty could play the role?

Elvis? Cannot picture that AT ALL! Can you imagine him doing the songs? Yikes...I totally love Richard Beymer...hardly don't even care that he's not really singing :)

I don't know if Natalie tried to get Richard fired, but I do know that Warren was considered for the part of Tony as well.

Lol, I can't really imagine Elvis playing Tony either. I think they made a good choice with Natalie and Tony =)

I cannot really see Elvis Presley as Tony, so maybe fate had its way with this one.
