West Side Story: America

To give those of you who’ve never seen it an idea of why West Side Story has such rabid fans (see previous post), here is what is debatably the best musical number in the film — America, featuring the fantastic dancing of Rita Moreno and George Chakiris.


Of course, this is no way to watch the film. You’ve got to see it on as big a screen as you can.

  1. You can count me among the fans of West Side Story! But, for some reason, your pictures aren’t showing up – just on this post.

    p.s. I finally figured out how to get my avatar to show!

  2. Hey there, Morna.

    I don’t have any trouble getting a picture for this one. Maybe it was just a traffic problem on the video site.

    If anyone else can’t see this video, please leave a comment to let me know, and I’ll try to figure it out.

  3. I’m getting the picture now. Go figure!
