Dirs. Jerome Robbins, Robert Wise. 1961, 151 mins. 70mm. With Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno. Beautifully restored in 2011 for the 50th anniversary of its release, 西区故事 has stood the test of time as one of the greatest film musicals. In its adaptation of the Romeo and Juliet story—featuring unforgettable songs by Leonard Bernstein and choreography by Jerome Robbins—feuding families are replaced by warring New York City gangs, the white Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. When forbidden love escalates their rivalry, tragedy strikes and doesn’t stop until the climactic ending.
