|Acclaimed one of the great musicals of our generation, and certainly the most vital from the point of view of social commentary, West Side Story made a brilliant transition from stage to screen. The production won ten Academy Awards as well as awards and citations from dozens of countries. In addition to is artistic success, the film ranks as one of the five biggest commercial successes in motion picture history. Filmed in Hollywood, with the exception of a few street scenes made in New York City, Natalie Wood stars. Others in the cast are Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno, George Chakiris.
Special note to Fair visitors: To make this Candy Store set of West Side Story more alive and colorful, we have arranged to have the Candy Store in actual operation. Not only will you see candies being made from private recies of Hollywood stars, but they will be offered for sale to those who would like this Sweet Souvenir from Hollywood U.S.A.
