West Side Story (1961 film version) on Super Bowl night:



As we all know, the 1961 film version of West Side Story is a hauntingly beautiful, emotional, violent, sad, exuberant, gentle and kindly, at the same time. I have admittedly lost count of how many times I've seen this great, golden oldie-but-keeper of a classic movie-musical, but it still tugs at my heartstrings as much today, as it has done, in both the distant and not-so-distant past.Collapse )
