Description

Musical comedy star Mary Martin suggested Yul Brynner for the part of the King in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1951 adaptation of Anna and the King of Siam.

Appearing opposite Gertrude Lawrence during its historic Broadway run, Brynner would eventually appear in the title role almost 5000 times during his forty-year career.

When 20th Century Fox produced its lavish widescreen film version in 1956 it was Deborah Kerr who portrayed the English tutor in the blockbuster hit that garnered nine Academy Award® nominations. Among its five wins was Best Actor for the man who created the part.

Hit songs from the show include “Shall We Dance”, “Getting To Know You”, “Hello Young Lovers” and “I Whistle a Happy Tune”. _

The King And I _is presented in glorious De Luxe color and CinemaScope 55.
