  • The King and I

    The King and I

    ★★★½

    -Oh, THAT'S where that annoying commercial song is from...
    -Second nominee from 1956 to have Yul Brynner talk about Moses
    -Second consecutive year to have a nominee with a scene of someone on a boat looking a naked people through a telescope (after Mister Roberts

    The King and I is good fun. The production is gorgeous, the performances are great, and the music is joyous to listen to. Now to someday watch that animated version that's been in my DVD collection for decades now that I haven't seen.
