  1. The king and I succeeds so brilliantly on the screen in part because they left the brilliant Broadway musical alone and just let it be. As movie it does tend to come off a somewhat stilted and yet it works because the underlying source material is so beautiful.

  2. Laura A. says:

    It’s been several years since I’ve seen it but I love Kerr’s huge dresses!

  3. J.M. Harrison says:

    While there is much to admire about the film–the score, etc., etc., etc., (I’m sorry, I just couldn’t help it.), what I admire most is the story itself.

  4. Jeanelle Kleveland says:

    I love the story. I love the music. I love the dancing. Yul Brenner was perfect for the King. He strove to be great.

    Beautiful costumes. It is amazing that Rita Moreno was one of the stars and yet it’s hard to recognize her unless you know.

  5. Sara Stewart says:

    Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr worked magnificently together. It was surprising to see him in a musical, but he brought the same strong performance that he brought to The Ten Commandments. Deborah Kerr was flawless and Rita Moreno brought me to tears.

  6. Victoria Rendon says:

    I love the chemistry between Yul and Deborah. With every look there is a bond.

  7. tula watt says:

    Absolutely love the music, costumes, story and of course the dancing. So happy to ‘maybe’ getting the chance to see this movie again on a big screen….

  8. Jerry "Dr." Durrwachter says:

    The songs! The dancing! Yul Brynner! Deborah Kerr! Rita Moreno!

  9. K. Dammes says:

    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

    I love everything about the movie especially the music and the costumes.

  10. Christina Keenan says:

    I loved the romantic tension between the characters portrayed by Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner — 2 characters matched in so many ways and yet never to be. I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

  11. Lina Bohmann says:

    Love the time period, music and dancing.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Lina, I don’t see your tweet yet. Please let me know if you tweeted, or post here if you don’t have a twitter account. Thanks!

  12. Annmarie Gatti says:

    Entering on behalf of Ashley who couldn’t post… her answer is ‘the music’

  13. I do not have a Twitter account so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

    There’s so much too love about this movie!! The superb acting by Deborah Kerr and Yul Brenner, the music, choreography, costumes, cinematography, storyline – “The King and I” is a classic movie and one of my favorite movies!!

  14. A Saunders says:

    (Not what – who!) Yul! RangerFan093048

    Loved the Siamese children in all their serious finery.

    Hard to believe a widow of that time could be so assertive! All the characters were superb!
    Linda

  16. Mark PAGAN says:

    Love it for the command that Brenner brings to the role of the King: such bravado, no matter what!

  17. Sara Tomase says:

    I adore the music and storyline of this film. I really love the character of Anna as a teacher and educator of not only the children but the adults in the film. The entry of the children is a powerful visual, along with the accompanying music. And, of course, the “Shall We Dance” number as Deborah Kerr spins around in that amazing hoop dress!

  18. William Thompson says:

    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

    For me, it is a love of the costuming and color process. The entire movie is a jewel-toned fantasy that is breathtaking to see.

  19. Matthew Laughlin says:

    Yul Brenner had so much talent,i would love to see this on the big screen

  20. Ronald Donehue says:

    I adore The King and I for a number of reasons. The first being the excellent cast. The second being how beautiful the movie was filmed and thirdly it’s musical score.

  21. Bharat Dhanireddy says:

    Yul Brunner’s performance is amazing!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Indeed! Can’t wait to see it on the Big Screen!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

  22. Daniel says:

    Although it’s been on my “to see” list for quite some time, I never got around to seeing “The King and I”. I was excited to see it on this years TCM Big Screen Classics schedule so I could rectify that. Watching the trailer with my son, he declared, “That looks good! Can we see that one?” How can I not go now?

  23. I love everything about The King and I! But if I had to choose just one thing it would be the production design, especially the sets ( by the 20th Century Fox maestro art director Lyle Wheeler ). The whole feel of the orient is captured in these sets and they are really what make the film stand out. Of course the music ( Shall We Dance? Yes, we shall! ) and the chemistry between Yul and Deborah is wonderful too. I would LOVE to see this on the big screen.

  24. Micky Pizarro says:

    Loved the screen chemistry between Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr. Sheer magic that you don’t find in the screen today. Besides, my very first crush at the age of 6 (42 years ago) was Yul Brynner…sigh, it hasn’t changed even though he’s been gone from us for a while. In my heart he’s still very much present…and yes, I shall dance.
