REVIEWS:





"What they have done with West Side Story in knocking
it down and moving it from stage to screen is to reconstruct
its fine material into nothing short of a cinema masterpiece. ....
The strong blend of drama, dance, and music folds into a rich
artistic whole. .... Perhaps the most striking aspect of it is
the sweep and vitality of the dazzling Jerome Robbins dances
that the kids of the seamy West Side do. .... Every moment
of the drama has validity and integrity."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; October 19, 1961







"What I loved during West Side Story, and why I recommend
it, is the dancing itself. The opening finger-snapping sequence
is one of the best uses of dance in movie history."

-- Roger Ebert; February 15, 2004
