West Side Story (1961)

This glorious musical retelling of Romeo and Juliet in the city streets of New York was one of the first experiments in telling a dramatic tale through musical theatre, and its success as a stage show is only eclipsed by the over-the-top brilliance of the Oscar-winning film adaptation.

It's great to see West Side Story in the top 50 movie musicals.
Here's hoping to see the day that the film West Side Story takes the number one spot!

Well, this list was in alphabetical order so the first one listed was only because of the title coming first and West Side Story was towards the bottom for the same reason.

But it's always No. 1 to me.

Aha!

I had no idea the fact that the list was in alphabetical order is what put West Side Story down towards the bottom. Thanks for the heads up, petzipellepringo!

West Side Story will always be number one for me, too!
