The world of the 1961 film West Side Story is still not too different from that of the 21st century, as class, age and racial prejudices still divide us and sometimes revert us to animalistic states. This timeless element, along with the combination of eloquent and witty songs, still has people flocking in droves to check out this gem of a musical. The Limited Edition DVD is the latest must-have for Jet and Shark fans alike. The special features match the desires of both the Natalie Wood savant and the first-time viewer. The two-disc set includes the standard trailer and behind-the-scene documentaries, but also features the original music and sing-along subtitles for all your favorite tunes, interviews with cast and crew and a storyboard-to-film comparison.
