I've been meaning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of West Side Story (1961) for two months now. I've shirked my duties as a fan.
When you're a fan, you're a fan all the way, from your first sing-along to your last dying day. ♫
But no more! In addition to December being the kick off for our year in review festivities let's celebrate the greatest musical ever written here and there with posts about the 1961 multiple Oscar winner.
I have two copies of the 50th anniversary Blu-Ray to give away. To enter simply send me an e-mail [filmexperience(at)gmail(dot)com] with "WSS" in the subject line by Sunday night, December 4th with the following information.
1. Your full name and mailing address
(this will be kept private unless you win in which case the studio gets your info to send you the prize!)
2. An anecdote about your personal relationship to this movie, be it a favorite song, first time you saw it, moment you love, favorite character, line from a song you have used in public or WHATEVER... (This second part may not be kept private. I might quote you in a future post!)
Enter the contest TONIGHT!
the world is wild and bright
shooting sparks into space
