  1. Hi, everybody! I just ordered the upcoming book "West Side Story: the Making of a Classic", which is slated to come out at the end of June of this year. I'm looking forward to reading it. Is anybody else on here planning to order that book, or already ordered it? Just curious.
  2. I remember the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie". It was a cool film.
  3. Btw, my name is Miki. I live in Somerville, MA. email is as follows: mpolumbaum406@comcast.net Movie theatres I frequent: Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, MA Brattle Theatre, Cambridge, MA Somerville Theatre, Somerville, MA (in Davis square) AMC Theatre in Assembly Row and sometimes in downtown Boston
  4. Aha! This sounds cool. I live in Somerville, MA, and I frequent the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, the Somerville Theatre in Somerville's Davis Square, and I occasionally go to the AMC in Somerville's assembly Row, and even the AMC theatre in Boston. I occasionally go to the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA, also. I, too love all the older classic films, especially those of the 1960's, and I have a soft spot for the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, which I see every time it comes to a movie theatre in our area, or is within reasonable driving distance from me. I never get tired of seeing that great, golden oldie-but-keeper of a classic movie-musical. Having said all of the above, I'd like to join the Boston fan association.
  5. Oops--my bad! Sorry about this. My all time favorite movie is still the original 1961 film version of West Side Story. I'll leave it at that.
  6. Just wondering, because I haven't seen it on your schedule for quite some time.
  7. Dubbing was very common during that period, plus it's sometimes necessary to do so. Unlike many other people, due at least in part to my intense love for the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, the dubbing of Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer doesn't bother me at all.
  8. Thanks, Gershwin fan. I've never heard of, much less seen Mindhunter. I don't have a DVD player at hom. Btw, is Leslie Banks a he or a she? Just curious.
  9. My all time favorite movie, hands down and the tops for me: The original 1961 film version of West Side Story Other favorite films of mine in no particular order: Sound of Music Wizard of Oz Lady & the Tramp (the original) Lawrence of Arabia Dirty Harry (the first one) French Connection Lion King (the original) Bonnie & Clyde Midnight Cowboy Georgy Girl Easy Rider True Grit (the original) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Gran Torino Goodfellas Godfather I and Godfather II The Graduate Tootsie Little Big Man
  10. I never saw The Most Dangerous Game, but I have seen both Zodiac and Dirty Harry (the first one), which were both excellent.
  11. From what I've read about the film version of Cats, it was a total flop as a movie. I've already put Cats on my don't-go-to-see list, regarding movies.
  12. Oh--Another musical I'd take with me if I were stuck on a desert island: the original 1961 film version of West Side Story!
  13. This scene, from the old, original 1961 film version of West Side Story, is totally realistic-looking, not only because of the older-looking car, but because, unlike in Spielberg's upcoming version of the film West Side Story, this on-location scene (and other on-location scenes and stage scenes, as well), it looks more realistically like a rough and rundown, impoverished part of a large American city.
  14. You're spot-on here, BreeInGilbertAZ! I could not have said it any better myself! Way to go! Thanks. I'll also add that I've already seen pictures of the cast for Spielberg and Kushner's upcoming reboot/remake of the 1961 film version of West Side Story, as well as some other photos and I really don't like the look of what I've seen so far. I've always been against remakes of older classic films, especially something such as West Side Story, but what I've seen of the upcoming reboot/remake of it has re-enforced my decision to vote my pocketbook and boycott (inotherwords, not go to see it!) the reboot/remake of the 1961 film version of West Side Story when it comes out in the movie theatres at around Christmastime of next year.
  15. There were people of varying age ranges watching the original 1961 film version of West Side Story in the Somerville Theatre. Neither screening sold out, but they had good crowds, nonetheless.
