Our Story Jets & Sharks Then and Now by Cast Members of the Film West Side Story Our Story
They came together to be rival gang members in a movie. They hadn?t a clue they were creating cinematic history. WEST SIDE STORY , winner of ten Oscars including best picture. Is there anyone who doesn?t know this iconic film that transcends generations? Yet very little is known about the rivaling Jets and Sharks, who were the backbone of the film and without whom there is no WEST SIDE STORY . Little if anything is known of how these gifted dancer/actor/ singers were chosen, their audition experience, how each member was hand picked by Jerome Robbins because their unique qualities fit his vision.
