Best - 'Romeo and Juliet' (1954)
Laurence Harvey stars as Romeo and Susan Shentall as Juliet in this adaptation of the famous play. It was directed by Renato Castellani who was named by the National Board of Review as Best Director for his work on the movie. Castellani made several changes to his script in order to highlight the class system and intense Catholicism of Renaissance Verona. Some critics agreed with his choices, others found them to be distracting.
