Yes, I'm just another one of your lame and infinitely unappreciated fans. I agree with all that your role as Romeo was...breathtaking! However, I wish I could have continued to see you portray other roles. Maybe one day you can pleasantly surprise us all with your continuance in the big screen. PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO DEPRIVE US OF YOUR TALENT. So many of us long for it. A true Leonard fan, Gaby

Leonard Whiting was absolutely wonderful playing Romeo. I was about 14 when this movie came out and I had his pictures all over my bedroom wall. I still love him. His acting was superb. I wish he had done more work. Love you Leonard!!

I too think Leonard Whiting is the best Romeo I`ve ever seen. He`s so romantic and plays the part of Romeo perfectly.

I watched Zef`s Romeo and Juliet in high school. I wanted that kind of romance in which my Romeo would throw himself in my arms with such passion. I went on to study pre-law, but I couldn`t forget Romeo`s eyes, and how he looked into Juliet`s soul with burning desire. I changed my major, went to school in Florence, Italy for my senior year of college, and studied the stones of Florence, Gubbio, Arezzo, and Pienza to see what Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey saw. Romeo and Juliet changed my perspective in life. I found beauty in the midst of my studies through my search for love, passion, and beauty.

I am watching Romeo and Juliet now. This film version stands the test of time. What an absolutely beautiful couple. Their delivery of the lines attests to their emotional and intellectual maturity.

I recently bought a new copy of the Romeo and Juliet movie because I loved that movie when I was in eight grade and after watching it again I fell in love all over again with the movie-wow!

Leonard Whiting made me fall in love at 14 and at 50. He is the the most memorable leading man ever! His Romeo was romantic and touching then and today.
