The winner of 10 Academy Awards, this 1961 musical by choreographer Jerome Robbins and director Robert Wise (The Sound of Music) remains irresistible. Based on a smash Broadway play updating Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to the 1950s era of juvenile delinquency, the film stars Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer as the star-crossed lovers from different neighborhoods--and ethnicities. The film's real selling points, however, are the highly charged and inventive song-and-dance numbers, the passionate ballads, the moody sets, colorful support from Rita Moreno, and the sheer accomplishment of Hollywood talent and technology producing a film so stirring. Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim wrote the score.

The packaging on the 50th Anniversary edition is quite nice. It comes with the Blu-Ray AND the DVD version and a copy of the songs reinterpreted by other artists. The nice touch is also a separate blu-ray disk with extras. Usually studios give you the extras on a standard resolution DVD, not blu-ray. That was nice. The book is interesting and the postcard size international movie posters are nice too. My wife is going to frame them together. Seriously though, its the movie we really wanted. So just he Blu-Ray will be great for most. But if you want the extra nick knacks, this set will please. But the picture quality will certainly please you!
Romeo and Juliet as told in 1960's New York...BRILLANT!!'
As to the movie, it is as beautiful as ever. There isn't much I can add to what others may have said previously, except that it is enjoyable to watch this film over and over. If you love movies or musicals you will enjoy this one.
