Two youngsters from rival New York City gangs fall in love, but tensions between their respective friends build toward tragedy.
George Chakiris was the only one out of the main characters to not be dubbed. This was because he had no hard solo songs to sing.
Riff: Beat it.
At the beginning of the movie, behind the first close-up of Riff on the playground, snapping his fingers, you can see a young boy riding his bike behind Riff, the boy wasn't there in the previous shot (from above).
There are no opening credits; a red tinted aerial still of Manhattan with the title is shown as the overture plays. As the overture ends, the red tint is removed and the shot segues to aerial photography of Manhattan streets and landmarks.
