On the brink of celebrating its 50th anniversary, West Side Story remains one of the classic motion pictures of the musical genre. A joint collaboration between directors Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise, it won 10 Academy Awards and produced the longest-charting soundtrack album of all time. This book explores not only the stage origins of the piece, but the incredible impact of the movie version and how it became a touchstone for all subsequent generations interested in dance on film and in great filmmaking in general.
