5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable, 20 Jun. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The King and I [VHS] [1956] (VHS Tape)
This is, and probably always will be my favourite musical. It is the first musical I saw live on stage, and one of the first movie musicals I saw. I have watched it endless times, Deborah Kerr is excellent as Anna, I can only imagine how she suffered in those costumes under those studio lights. Marni Nixon does all of Miss Kerr's songs, even if you watch carefully you would never know. Yul Brynner's prescence is magnetic as King Mongkut of Siam, and Terri Saunders makes a great Lady Thiang. Carlos Riviera and Rita Moreno turn in fine performances as the starstruck but doomed lovers. One regret is that a couple of songs have been cut from the movie. The one especially missed is the wonderfully clever Shall I Tell You What I Think Of You? This song however features on the movie soundtrack, along with My Lord And Master. Rodgers & Hammerstein's songs are "Something Wonderful" and very hummable! The songs are instantly recognisable - a great family classic.
