Original United Artists 1968 Re-Release One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise iconic musical, WEST SIDE STORY (1961) starring Natalie Wood, George Chakiris, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Rita Moreno. This film was a seminal adaptation of the Shakespearian tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Warring New York City gangs replace the feuding families from the play. Shooting lasted for 6 months, and sound mixing and editing took another 7 months to complete. The film was a box office smash hit and won 10 Academy AwardsÑincluding Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor to Chakiris, Best Supporting Actress to Moreno, and Best Director to Robbins and Wise. This original re-release poster is in fine plus condition, folded, but in nice shape. United Artists re-released WEST SIDE STORY in 1968 and this poster dates from that release of the movie.
