An original 1962 1st release Australian daybill poster for West Side Story, an American Academy award-winning romantic tragedy musical directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins. The feuding families become two warring New York City gangs--the white Jets led by Riff and the Latino Sharks, led by Bernardo. Their hatred escalates to a point where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. Straring Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Rita Moreno, George Chakiris, Russ Tamblyn. The film was released in June 1962 outisde the U.S and this is the 1st release of the theatrical poster for Australia, which includes the 10 Academy awards honoured in  April the same year.  Saul Bass (Shinning, Vertigo, Anatomy Of Murder), and his wife created the title sequence, and its often assumed he did the poster artwork also (it most definitely has his signature graphic style), but the artwork is actually by Joseph Caroff.
