    On August 8th, 1960- WEST SIDE STORY BEGINS FILMING

    In New York, filming begins on West Side Story, the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical featuring music and lyrics by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. Because of a previous film commitment, star Natalie Wood was unable to come to New York for filming, so only scenes without her were filmed on the East Coast; her scenes were shot in Hollywood. Released in 1961, the movie won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director, and Supporting Actor and Actress.
