"West Side Story (1961) is set in New York City and depicts characters struggling to achieve the American Dream - a myth expressed so well in Hollywood’s characteristically exuberant film musicals. The film undermines the conventional romance plot of the classic musical to emphasize the real social problems it depicts. It shattered the utopian version of so many of the musicals that preceded it. Indeed, so startling did the opening of West Side Story seem at the time of its release that one reporter rhapsodized, ‘the neorealist musical is about to be born’.”

In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it, 
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade. 
I’ll be all in clover and when they look you over, 
I’ll be the proudest fellow in the Easter parade. 
On the avenue, fifth avenue, the photographers will snap us, 
And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure. 
Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet, 
And of the girl I’m taking to the Easter parade.

A beautiful girl is like a great work of art. She’s stylish, she’s chic, and she also is smart.
