MST3k and RiffTrax filmmaker David Winters

David Winters

David Winters (1939-2019) was a British-born American actor and filmmaker who got his start in television and on Broadway. Notably, he appeared in both the Broadway and film versions of West Side Story (though as different characters).

Winters' breakthrough in motion pictures occurred when he served as the choreographer for the Elvis Presley film Viva Las Vegas (with Ann-Margret). As a result, he became one of the most sought after choreographers in Hollywood, handling dozens of productions.

In 1967, he began directing, starting with several episodes of The Monkees. In 1987, he founded his own production company Action International Productions (later renamed West Side Studios), which specialized in low budget fare.
