FILM DESCRIPTION: Romeo and Juliet is updated to the tenements of New York City in this Oscar-winning musical landmark. Adapted by Ernest Lehman from the Broadway production, the movie opens with an overhead shot of Manhattan, an effect that director Robert Wise would repeat over the Alps in The Sound of Music four years later. We are introduced to two rival street gangs: the Jets, second-generation American teens, and the Sharks, Puerto Rican immigrants. When the war between the Jets and Sharks reaches a fever pitch, Jets leader Riff (Russ Tamblyn) decides to challenge the Sharks to one last "winner take all" rumble. He decides to meet Sharks leader Bernardo (George Chakiris) for a war council at a gymnasium dance; to bolster his argument, Riff wants his old pal Tony (Richard Beymer), the cofounder of the Jets, to come along. But Tony has set his sights on vistas beyond the neighborhood and has fallen in love with Bernardo's sister, Maria (Natalie Wood), a love that, as in Romeo and Juliet, will eventually end in tragedy. In contrast to the usual slash-and-burn policy of Hollywood musical adaptations, all the songs written by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim for the original Broadway production of West Side Story were retained for the film version, although some alterations were made to appease the Hollywood censors, and the original order of two songs was reversed for stronger dramatic impact. The movie more than retains the original choreography of Jerome Robbins, which is recreated in some of the most startling and balletic dance sequences ever recorded on film. West Side Story won an almost-record ten Oscars, including Best Picture, supporting awards to Chakiris and Rita Moreno as Bernardo's girlfriend, Anita, and Best Director to Robbins and Wise. Richard Beymer's singing was dubbed by Jimmy Bryant, Natalie Wood's by Marni Nixon (who also dubbed Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady), and Rita Moreno's by Betty Wand. The film's New York tenement locations were later razed to make room for Lincoln Center. CREDITS: TM & © MGM (1961) Cast: Jose De Vega, Jay Norman, Jaime Rogers, Larry Roquemore, Robert E.

This film is inspired by Romeo and Juliet which was inspired by Tristan and Isolde, the tragedy of tribalism. After hundreds of years some people are still so dense they are arguing about skin, when the entire story is about brotherhood and sisterhood among all people. And that the sinful obsessions with gangs, families and countries always always always ends in tragic death for everyone. God bless I hope humans can stop remaking this story one day soon.

Brilliant tribute to the people pf Puerto Rico. Thank you Bernstein, Sondheim and Robbins. 57 years later and it has lost none of its dynamism and bite (if you're all white in America).

1962; I was 9. I saw West Side at the theater and was so blown away I was so much in mourning over Riff’s death and the emotion-charged, action-packed stuff of the movie, I couldn’t concentrate in school and nearly failed 4 th grade! I still don’t regret seeing this masterpiece- and this scene was embedded in my memory! What directing and acting!

The gang members would have had no unemployment, no money problems and no time to fight if they had just danced their way over to the theater district and auditioned for work.

A landmark in the history of the American musical and movie.. Between Jerome Robbins choreography, Leonard Bernstein's music, and performances by the cast all add up to brilliance. The smiling lady on the billboard is a fascinating touch.. Timeless, genius work by all.
