A modern retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the film features music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The film was co-directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. The cast features Natalie Wood as Maria, Richard Beymer as Tony, Rita Moreno as Anita, and George Chakiris as Bernardo.
The screening will be preceded by a special pre-taped conversation with Chakiris and Marni Nixon, who served as Wood's voice double; as well as Walter Mirisch of The Mirisch Company, which produced the film. TCM host Robert Osborne moderates the talk.
