Seeing as West Side Story is now available I am reblohging my post about one of my favourite movies of all time.
Both London and New York are having a tough time right now Sending you all my best wishes.
West Side Story(1961) was probably the catalyst for my interest in New York. It is basically a modern version Romeo and Juliet. The characters are called Maria and Tony rather than Romeo and Juliet. Here Maria and Tony sing Somewhere. (Movie version)
