West Side Story (1961) should've featured Elvis as Tony, who would have been a lot more memorable than whoever it was who actually played the part
I think he would have been at least distracting and probably less believable.
But at least he would have been better than Richard Beymer, who is undoubtedly the weak link in movie's cast.

According to Wikipedia, other actors who auditioned for the part of "Tony" included Warren Beatty, Anthony Perkins, Richard Chamberlain, Burt Reynolds . . . and a young Anthony Hopkins.

The mind boggles.
