Spielberg's



(See my complete original review of THIS version https://www.blogger.com/blog/post/edit/24801332/8007468552029230706 )

"I was very apprehensive of seeing the new movie version of "West Side Story" as I saw the original 1957 Broadway production 7 times--don't know how many times I have seen the 1961 movie--plus how many remakes can you say are even as good as the original let alone better but I'm just a 'Broadway baby' so I was keeping my fingers crossed that it would completely surprise me. It did surprise me even possibly more than when I saw "West Side Story" the first time on stage or on film."
***************************************************

This is my second viewing of the Spielberg version of "West Side Story" and for some reason of all the stage productions I have seen and all the times I have seen the first version I was most deeply affected watching it today--a beautiful film which I do want to see again and again!
***************************************************

Before the movie Emir and I met Allen at Big Louie's as I wanted the two of them to meet--we had a large pizza with olives, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms and sausage--each had 3 slices--delicious as always!
***************************************************

To top it all off when I got home Cathy had made a plate of meatballs, sausage and rigatoni for me for supper!

Some days are better than others and this was one of the better days of the past 4 months!
