Romeo and Juliet (25-Sep-1968)

Director: Franco Zeffirelli

Writers: Franco Brusati; Masolino D'Amico; Franco Zeffirelli

From a play: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Music: Nino Rota

Producers: Anthony Havelock-Allan; John Brabourne

Keywords: Romantic Drama

Star-crossed lovers from rival families of Verona are secretly married, and then Juliet is betrothed to another by her father, unaware of her marriage. The two youths are played by teenagers, as the playwright intended. Best of the three Zeffirelli Shakespearean features, and certainly the best rendering of Romeo and Juliet ever filmed.
