An old favourite bought as a Christmas present. Excellent package and the additional disc is both interesting and informative. As for the film, a well documented classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy childhood memories, 13 Mar 2012
This review is from: The King And I: 2-disc [Special Edition] [DVD] (DVD)
I never get fed up watching this as it brings happy memories of my mother taking me to see it in the cinema. It is escapism to glamour and old fashioned Hollywood.
