Post subject:  Is there a DVD/Blu Ray of West Side Story stage show?

I'm having real trouble finding a DVD/Blu Ray of a staged version of West Side Story. I have the film and love it but there are bits about it that annoy me compared to the stage show (particularly the original Broadway production) - eg lyrical changes, structural differences, Natalie Wood. I have the Original Broadway cast version on CD and it is so much better than the film score but why after 55 years has no one produced a decent film of it? I have seen a number of great staged productions of West Side story but it seems strange that no one has thought to make a film of one. Is it because the movie people own the rights or something stupid like that?
