I believe the film Stephanie Hughes referred to is "Los Tarantos"
(1962), directed by Francisco Rivera Beleta and adapted by Beleta from
Alfredo Manas's play.

Cheers,

Barry Parker's Folger Shakespeare Filmography (1979)carries a nice note
on Los Tarantos (Spain 1964),   a dance/musical adaptation of Romeo and
Juliet transferred to an impoverished quarter of Barcelona. Haunting
guitar music and the Carmen Amaya flamenco dance company accompany this
Spanish West Side Story.  My own Shakespeare filmography (1990) echoes
Parker but the chances of locating it on video are slim.  Films
Incorporated once carried it on 16mm. A query to them might be
worthwhile. Ken Rothwell

My favourite research tool, the Internet Movie Database, lists Los
Tarantos (complete title), Spain, 1962; directed by Francisco Rovira
Beleta. Carmen Amaya is the lead. The film was nominated for the
foreign-language Oscar in 1964. The 11 people who have voted on it for
the IMDb give it a very high 8.0out of 10 rating.  It's not available on
video, however.
