Reviewed on 10/26/2017...
Of all the movies I went to see in the theater back when I was young West Side Story was the one I always remembered as the most fun. I cried.... I laughed... and I "experienced" as an impressionable young girl all of the emotions Natalie Wood emoted onto the big screen. I loved the film as no other! Now, many years later, I enjoyed it all over again but maybe a bit more subdued with plenty of "real life" experiences of my own behind me. I still think West Side Story is as good as it gets in movie experiences and the Academy members must have thought so too as it won 10 Oscars including Best Picture back in 1961. Highly recommended!

"Simply Enchanting"
Terry Richard | Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada | 09/28/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone with knowledge of 1960's cinema knows "West Side Story", probably one of the greatest movie musicals in history. Everything from Robert Wise's and Jerome Robbin's superb direction to the flawless acting performances of Natalie Wood, Rita Moreno, and Richard Beymer, "West Side Story" succeeds on all fronts. Featuring a beautiful star-crossed love story set against the backdrop of 1950's New York City gang life, the movie is known for its beautiful score and music. Memorable songs include "Maria", "America", and "Somewhere", and performed with some of the most unforgettable choreography in film.

Winner of an outstanding 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture of 1961 the movie made Natalie Wood a boxoffice queen and Rita Moreno a well-sought after actress. The film holds the record as being the only movie musical to garner the most Oscar wins.

This exquiste box set is simply breathtaking. The film has been finally released in its original widescreen format after a paltry DVD barebones release that featured the movie in full frame. Bonuses include a book that houses the film's entire script with rare photographs. Also included are trailers, a "West Side Story" documentary, and much more. MGM has gone all out on this two DVD set. Thank you!"
