Fifty years of West Side Story
October 18, 1961 - October 18, 2011

As a small contribution to the celebration of fifty years of a classic motion picture, I thought that as a community we should do something. Here are some thoughts, please feel free to chip in with additional ideas.

I've been thinking that an icon/banner/wallpaper/gif/header contest with prizes would be fun if members are interested. If we have a closure date of October 18 that gives everyone two months to work on their project. Here's what I've gathered to offer as prizes and YoursTruly and zanthinegirl will be the judges.

Souvenir booklet sold when the film premiered in 1961

Poster created when the film was re-released in 1968

I've also thought that it would be fun to have posts on : favorite moments in the film, favorite songs and why they mean so much to you, favorite characters, picspam, first time you saw the film, etc.

I throw the floor open to suggestions.

I probably wouldn't be much use in the graphics department, since all of mine are so simple, but that souvenir book is an epic prize. (Does it cover all the cast or just the first five billed?)

And I would love to participate in the "Favorites" posts!

(Also, I got hold of Something's Coming, Something Good. Thank you for letting me know about it! I'm really enjoying it, and I like their description of Schrank. It is fair, and I think kind, to him. I'm going to get that slim book you mentioned too.)

Nothing wrong with simple graphics.

(Does it cover all the cast or just the first five billed?)

If you're asking if it includes SO, the answer is no. Just the major cast and some of the production people.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the book.

Well, if the contest gets going then, I'll participate!

(That's what I figured. But I was curious anyway.)
