The King and I

The third Rodgers & Hammerstein Broadway hit to go before the cameras, The King and I boasts a career-making performance from Yul Brynner, repeating his stage triumph as the titular monarch and proving to moviegoers that bald can be beautiful. It’s Brynner’s proud king that provides the fulcrum to the plot, and it’s Brynner himself, with his piercing gaze and graceful physicality, that demands our attention.
