The Jets. The Sharks. The many, many vocal dubs. Ten-time Academy Award winner West Side Story is a modern day Romeo and Juliet with an unforgettable score and soundtrack. The cinematography and musical numbers are mesmerizing. And I still find it difficult during the rumble scene to stay cool, boy. Reeeeal cool.
