Can we make this the most reblogged picture on Tumblr
i was gonna apologize for my West Side Story spam but nah its my blog and that’s my favorite musical so deal with it
Russ Tamblyn with some mad skills in West Side Story (1961).
Real ages of the cast of 1961’s West Side Story. I don’t know the exact ages these characters are supposed to be, but both the Sharks and the Jets are described in the script as “teenage gangs”.
That said, these actors are all around 21-23 which is closer to teenage than some other films.
Not sure if Anita and Bernardo (at the top) are meant to be teens as well, so it kinda works Rita Moreno and George Chakiris were a bit older.
eternally wishing i could dress like the cast of West Side Story
Favourite song from the musical.
Gee, Officer Krupke sung by cast of Jets
