I’m not clever in math. I can notice some basic relationships, though, and I can see that both the 12 hour clock and the 360° circle are divisible by 6’s (and of course, 3’s). On the clock face, the numbers 3, 6, 9, and 12 can be connected with lines to form diamond with a plus sign (+). The plus sign is also a visual representation of four 90° angles – the 360° of a circle or the four interior angles of a square.
Like the numbers on the clock and the degrees in a circle, the Persian calendar 360 day year is divisible by 6’s and 3’s and suggests that the degrees on a circle may be partly a graphical representation of a year. Similarly, our modern calendar is divided, like a clock, into twelve units (months).
West Side Story is a well-known reworking of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It appeared on Broadway in 1957. The 1961 film was nominated for 11 acadamy awards and won 10. (Wikipedia)
West Side Story is about love that crosses boundaries, and it has lots of double entendres regarding the war game of right-eye (Jets) vs left-eye (Sharks).
Here is a reference to spying in the Jets song:
“You’re never alone, you’re never disconnected. You’re home with your own. When company’s expected, you’re well protected. Then you are set with a capital J which you’ll never forget ’till they cart you away..”
And here’s another: “In, out – let’s get crackin'”
There is a neighborhood police officer in West Side Story named Officer Krupke. My guess is that this name was created by combining the name of the German industrialist Krupp dynasty with the word “Key.”
Here are some highlights:
“Sometimes I don’t know which is thicker, your skull or your accent.”
Skull is a left-eye reference. Accent is probably a right-eye reference because it contains the word “cent” and it’s related to spying. She then holds up her left hand in a fist as if to fight; he grabs her left arm and kisses the backs of her fingers.
