De New Yorkse buurtbendes The Jets en The Sharks bestrijden elkaar op leven en dood. Wanneer een ex-lid van de Jets verliefd wordt op de zus (Natalie Wood) van de Sharks-aanvoerder, zijn de rapen gaar. Een van de grote Hollywood-musicals, vooral door de songs van Stephen Sondheim en de muziek van Leonard Bernstein. West Side Story sleepte maar liefst tien Oscars in de wacht, waaronder die voor beste film, beste bijrollen en beste camerawerk. De choreografie van Jerome Robbins kreeg een speciale Oscar voor beste choreografie. Regisseur Robert Wise gebruikte niet al te opwindende dialogen voor zijn adaptatie van Shakesepares beroemde ‘Romeo en Julia’, maar niemand die dat bezwaarlijk vond. De strijd tussen de Puertoricaanse immigrantenjongeren van The Sharks en hun ‘oorspronkelijke’ New Yorkse rivalen The Jets wordt voornamelijk via zang en dans in beeld gebracht zoals het een musical betaamt. Actrices Rita Moreno en Natalie Wood schitteren als elkaar rivalen en de muziek van Leonard Bernstein - gedeeltelijk geschreven in een afwijkende vijfkwartsmaat - geeft de film een opwindende vaart. Songs als ‘Maria’, ‘Tonight’, ‘America’en ‘I Feel Pretty’ werden wereldhits. West Side Story is opgenomen in de Top 100 (nr. 41) van allerbeste films aller tijden van het American Film Institute. De film is onlangs gerestaureerd, waardoor de indrukwekkende breedbeeldopnamen (70mm) en felle kleuren weer tot hun recht komen.

Lou Cannon and Colin Powell believed the film inspired Ronald Reagan to discuss uniting against an alien invasion when meeting Mikhail Gorbachev in 1985. Two years later, Reagan told the United Nations, "I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world"

I thought of making another new version of this beautiful standards, but this time with vanBasco mini keys, so interested people can benefit from what I played...But even though, I noticed that unfortunately not all of the notes that I played appear in the video. MORE INFORMATIONS: "Over the Rainbow" (sometimes mistakenly known as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow") is a song with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg. It was written for the movie The Wizard of Oz, and it became Judy Garland's signature song. The song's plaintive melody and simple lyrics depict a pre-adolescent girl's desire to escape from the "hopeless jumble" of this world, from the sadness of raindrops to the bright new world "over the rainbow." It expresses the childlike faith that a door will magically be opened to a place where "troubles melt like lemon-drops". The song is so popular that it tops the "Songs of the Century" list compiled by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts. It also topped the American Film Institute's "100 Years, 100 Songs" list. Along with Irving Berlin's "White Christmas", the song was adopted by the American troops in Europe in World War II as a symbol of the United States, the faraway land that, after long years of war, seemed like a dream beyond the rainbow. Modern listeners may be unaware that the song had an introductory stanza, as this was not sung in the film by Garland. However, there is one known recorded instance of her singing the full song with the introductory verse, on The Louella Parsons Radio Show in December 1948. The song has come to epitomize the gesture of the rising octave, which makes its opening so distinctive. Sight-singing instructors and other musicians use the song as an example and a reference point for hearing the interval. The music is heavily inspired by the 'Song to the Moon' by Dvorak's opera Rusalka.

On Blu-ray and DVD at www.wbshop.com . Cary Grant teams with director Alfred Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this superlative espionage caper judged one of the American Film Institute's Top-100 American Films and spruced up with a new digital transfer and remixed Dolby Digital Stereo. Grant plays a Manhattan advertising executive plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and in another signature set piece, crop-dusted. He also holds on for dear life from the facial features of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore (backlot sets were used). But don't expect the Master of Suspense to leave star or audience hanging.

Named the 5th Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute, Fred Astaire had a career as a leading man that lasted decades. Astaire is one of the best dancers in the history of film, and unquestionably the most influential. Royal Wedding is an opulent and special film for several reasons. Visually stunning in the most lavish of locations and sets, Royal Wedding has a lofty air about it that never descends from the clouds. Astaire dances with several ladies, but the show stealers are his solo performances, including the famous tap dance on the ceiling! Charming, funny, romantic, elegant, Royal Wedding is a cornucopia of sumptuous delight.
