Romeo and Juliet (20-Aug-1936)

Director: George Cukor

Writer: Talbot Jennings

From a play: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Musical Score by: Herbert Stothart

Keywords: Romantic Drama

Young star-crossed lovers of Renaissance Verona meet tragedy in this lavish adaptation of Shakespeare's play. True to the original, exquisite sets, fine acting; the main flaw being the ages of the lead actors: 43 and 36 respectively, and Mercutio is 54! Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Art Direction.
