West Side Story 50th Anniversary Edition Box Set
Blu-ray ($69.99)

A tuneful tale of star-crossed lovers in a 1950s Manhattan neighborhood ruled by singin', dancin', finger-snappin' street gangs, "West Side Story" was based on the Broadway stage hit of the same name and starred Rita Moreno, George Chakiris and Russ Tamblyn. Now the most Oscar-winning movie musical of all time celebrates the big 5-0 with a newly restored, hi-def version in a gift set loaded with extras, including a retrospective analysis of the movie's lavish dance scenes; commentary on the iconic soundtrack by its lyricist, Stephen Sondheim; and a documentary about the film's enduring, worldwide impact.
