West Side Story 1961

From Amazon: The winner of 10 Academy Awards, this 1961 musical by choreographer Jerome Robbins and director Robert Wise (The Sound of Music) remains irresistible. Based on a smash Broadway play updating Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the 1950s era of juvenile delinquency, the film stars Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as the star-crossed lovers from different neighborhoods--and ethnicities. The film's real selling points, however, are the highly charged and inventive song-and-dance numbers, the passionate ballads, the moody sets, colorful support from Rita Moreno, and the sheer accomplishment of Hollywood talent and technology producing...

West Side Story Movie Review by KoKo (7/25/2012)

"There's a place for us... A time and a place for us."

You know, everytime I watch West Side Story I always end up crying. I can't help it.

With all of the hatred and anger that's going on around them, it's the sad tragedy that befalls the 2 star-crossed lovers, Tony and Maria, that tugs so deeply on my emotions and...

West Side Story Movie Review by BillyBob (9/16/2010)

Yeah. OK. WEST SIDE STORY's got its flaws. But, with that said, only the meanest-minded, little troll with the blackest heart on earth would rate this film any lower than 3 stars.

Even though I'm not a big fan of this particular genre of film, I found WEST SIDE STORY (WSS) to be so impressively produced that it somehow...

West Side Story Movie Review by Filmkiller (5/4/2008)

Alas, it has fallen to me to balance the scales once again. I saw West Side Story for the first time tonight... tonight... and it was, overall, a true film tragedy with the majority of the entertainment coming from unintentional humor.

West Side Story Movie Review by Jarrod (11/19/2007)

'West Side Story' is an exuberant, ingeniously-choreographed musical retelling of Romeo and Juliet, with Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as the ill-fated lovers, who are associated with different warring street gangs, the Sharks and the Jets. The Sharks are Puerto Rican, led by Bernardo (George Chakiris). Wood is his...

West Side Story Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/14/2007)

So Natalie Wood doesn't sing, so what. Unlike Audrey Hepburn in a certain 'loverly' movie, Wood sells us on Maria so well that we believe it is her voice and that is the ultimate accomplishement for a dubbed role.

This story follows gangs in a Romeo and Juliet setting where Maria and Tony are being kept from loving one...
