Missing Frames: Catching up with Cinema

No more excuses! Join these heroic podcasters as they plunge the depths of cinema to watch all the movies they should have seen long ago. From classics like Citizen Kane to fan favorites like The Princess Bride, your hosts seek to not only make up for their years of cinematic ignorance but to delight the masses with their thoughtful and entertaining examinations.



Episode 84 - West Side Story

Tricia Aurand of the Lessons from the Screenplay team returns to Missing Frames to introduce Shawn to West Side Story. This seminal 1961 musical, co-directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, won the Academy Award for Best Picture and paved the way for an entire decade of cinematic musical adaptations. Not only had Shawn never seen the film, he knew next to nothing about its story or its characters.

Join Shawn and Tricia as they discuss whether or not the film still holds up today, their favorite song and dance numbers and whether they're looking forward to the upcoming Steven Spielberg remake.
