20:07 (When You're a Jet)

Each morning a screenshot from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie

So what are we gonna do, huh, buddy boys? I'll tell you what we're gonna do...

That's the 20:07 screenshot for Westside story? Hm, I would much rather see Natalie or Rita. I guess this will have to do.

My favorite movie musical. I saw it on TV when I was 8 and was totally enthralled, dancing around the house, imagining I was Rita Moreno, swishing my imaginary skirts.

I asked for the Broadway cast recording or the movie soundtrack (I already knew the difference) for my 9th birthday. Don't most boys ask for show tunes for their 9th birthdays? I didn't get it, and my parents were always very generous on birthdays. This was the one thing I didn't get. I got a rifle instead. A gun. For real. A firearm. I think that was the point when mom and dad realized this wasn't a phase.

Last year, my wonderful husband gave me the Broadway cast recording for my birthday. It was the best gift anyone's ever given me.

Sondhiem summed it up well. Good choice!

Yeah, it's hard to beat West Side Story isn't it?

i was surprised that this early scene was 20 minutes in and then i remembered. the overture. it goes on for quite awhile. and musicals actually used to kick off that way.
