After seeing a somewhat disappointing version at Stratford Festival a couple of years ago, I was stunned at the continued poignancy of this film. From the opening tracking shot, the film builds intensity partly due to the cinematography and partly Leonard Bernstein's great score. All this with good acting, singing, and dancing is remarkably relevant despite being over 50 years old.
