Silent, colour 8mm home movies shot behind the scenes of the filming of WEST SIDE STORY. Included are many of the songs and also included is a comparison of the film and the behind-the-scenes footage. What the cast can be seen doing at 2:53 is a "rain dance". They would do rain dances in order to stop filming to rest. Eventually they were told to stop because it actually worked!

The Oscar-Winning Musical Chris Evans Would Love To Remake

By Conner Schwerdtfeger

His work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has kept him insanely busy over the last few years, but Chris Evans hasn’t slowed down one bit. Sure, he makes a great Captain America, but he has ambitions outside of the superhero genre that even we could not have anticipated.

Women and Gender in Musicals Week: Female Friendship, Madonna/Whore Stereotypes and Rape Culture in 'West Side Story'

Posted by Megan "The Opinioness" Kearns

[Trigger warning for rape] | Spoilers ahead

West Side Story is one of my absolute favorite musicals. I adore the catchy lyrics, the breathtakingly exquisite choreography and cinematography, the heartbreaking love story. A modern Romeo and Juliet taking place in New York City amongst two rival gangs -- one white, one Puerto Rican -- it tackles racism, bigotry, murder and teen angst. But many audiences overlook the film’s portrayal of gender, female friendship and rape culture.

I keep seeing this photo popping up on various sites with the label "Russ Tamblyn, Richard Beymer & Natalie Wood".

Anyone with decent vision can clearly tell that that is most certainly not Russ Tamblyn, it doesn't even look remotely like him. It's Tommy Abbott who played Gee-Tar :
