In the slums of the upper West Side of Manhattan, New York, a gang of Polish-American teenagers called the Jets compete with a rival gang of recently immigrated Puerto Ricans, the Sharks, to “own” the neighborhood streets. Tensions are high between the gangs but two romantics, one from each gang, fall in love leading to tragedy.

Release date: 27 February 1962 (UK)

Again the choice sits with the original version and not the remake, although the 2021 Steven Speilberg is very very good, it’s simply not a patch on what many think is the greatest musical of all time (You can fight that out with Singing in the Rain if you wish, but we’re not getting invovled). The classic rettelling of the story of Romeo and Juliet is an nailed on timeless classic, which is a phrase banded about a lot, but for once, this film is worthy of that title. unmissbale.
