Our Story Jets and Sharks Then and Now: As Told By Cast Members From the Movie West Side Story by 12 cast members from the 1961 film. 300 pages of reminiscences from Jets Russ Tamblyn, Tony Mordente, Bert Michaels, David Bean, Harvey Hohnecker(Evans), Robert Banas, Gina Trikonis and Carole D'Andrea as well as Sharks Eddie Verso, Nick Covacevich, Joanne Miya and Maria Henley. ...

Lots of great tidbits about how they got the parts, filming both in NYC and Hollywood and what happened to them after the movie came out. An especially nice part is an acknowledgement of those casts members who have passed away since the film came out : Tucker Smith, Anthony (Scooter) Teague, Tommy Abbott, Patti Tribble (Minnie), Jose de Vega, Robert Thompson, Rudy del Campo, Andre Tiyr, Suzy Kaye and Linda Dangcil.

It really was, so many little tidbits about what happened on the set and all the mischief everyone got into in between takes. And the other funny thing was how many of the players are straight, completely different than what you would assume about a bunch of ballet dancers.
