Host Steve Mazan gets joined by velvety-voice fellow comic Chris Strait to discuss the Oscar champ of 1961 “West Side Story” from co-directors Robert Wise & Jerome Robbins…and an uncredited Shakespeare.

How well does this hold up?

Are Immigration & Police Corruption just as timely today?

Is it’s influence bigger than it’s actual value?

Is two and a half hours too much ballet fighting?

Is the cinematography the forgotten star?

Is it ok to play another race if they dub your voice?

Is a musical rape scene as ambitious as it gets?

All these questions and more get answered on this week’s Mazan Movie Club Podcast.
