Has anyone else seen this masterpiece? Far better than that DiCaprio rubbish in the 90s. Also, the girl playing Juliet looks quite a bit like Ana Ivanovic...

Saw this film decades ago, I believe Franco Zefirelli (sp?) directed, fairly true to the original play. Olivia Hussey, she of the breathless heaving bosom, played Juliet, acted a bit here and there after but didn't have much of an acting career. I believe Romeo (Leonard something) did some British TV after but then also faded away.

It was indeed directed by Zeffirelli, and was quite a traditional take on the play but I think he managed to capture it perfectly. It's quite surprising that neither of them did much after, they were both beautiful specimens. Leonard had the perfectly sweet, innocent and handsome face for the part and Olivia was graceful and beautiful.
I abhor the DiCaprio version, I've never understood its popularity.

Underage?

Well when I watched it as a 15 year old in drama class in California I fell in mad love with her.

Master first class exposed bosom of love, light, lust and honour.

Sexi actress, best class, magical bosoms.

These are "the best" if you like the classic version. Your library probably has these. I managed to copy every single one of them off VHS some years ago. But, they are probably worth the $750 (~$20 per DVD):

This is also a 3 hour drive from me. Really good productions:
