The King & I,
This review is from: The King And I: 2-disc [Special Edition] [DVD] (DVD)
The King & I is a show which rests on the performances of two people, The King and Anna Leonowens in this film you have two outstanding talents in the roles. Yul Brynner on stage and on film set the standard by which all subsequent kings are judged. He played the king over 4,000 times! Deborah Herr, a beautiful woman and better than average actress siezed the role and made it her own, although Marni Nixon had to be employed again to dub her voice (see West Side Story & My Fair Lady). The Rodgers and Hammerstein score is as clean and colourful as ever with tunes that are familiar to succeeding generations.
