George Chakiris: Dancing With Marilyn

George Chakiris, who danced with Marilyn in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, spoke about her this week to the Ventura County Star:

“Marilyn Monroe was amazing. She was quiet and deeply, deeply concentrated in her work. What we feel about her is not all because she died so young. She was intensely and beautifully talented. Her impulses were wonderful. Her singing was delicious. Her presence was unique, and she knew where all the comedy was. It’s one of my favorite credits — I got to be one of the guys behind Marilyn Monroe.”
