"One of the best musicals ever!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This musical has the most beautiful music and couple that with the acting talents of Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr it becomes a winner. Set in Siam a wonderful meeting of two opposite cultures, the English and the Siamese (I think it is called Burma now). The scenery and costuming is superb!

The King and I

This visual and musical masterpiece features Yul Brynners Academy Award winning performance, an unforgettable Rodgers and Hammerstein score and brilliant choreography by Jerome Robbins. It tells the true story of an English woman, Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr), who comes to Siam as schoolteacher to the royal court in the 1860s. Though she soon finds herself at odds with the stubborn monarch (Brynner), over time, Anna and the King stop trying to change each other and begin to understand one another.

Winner of six Academy Awards, The King And I contains some of the most lavish sets in Hollywood and some of the worlds best-loved songs, including “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle A Happy Tune,” “Hello, Young Lovers” and “Shall We Dance?”

Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe Winner 1956.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Starring Yul Brynner in the part he seemed born to play, this is a fine if slightly stage-bound example of the 1950s Hollywood musical spectacular. " – TV Guide
  • " A boisterous, big-costumed classic musical. " – Heather Boerner (Common Sense Media)
  • " A chronicle of colonialism that poses itself as an easy-to-dismiss artifact, yet reveals itself to be an enduring statement about why people can't get along. " – Walter Chaw (Walter ChawFilm Freak Central)
