    Would it interest anyone to know the singer who dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I” also dubbed Natalie Wood in “Westside Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady?”

    Teena is having a great time too, learning how to be a stereotypical female.

    Any relation to richard nixon? Any relation to the scriptwriter for the late soap opera All My Children who’s last name was Nixon? (don’t ask me how I know that because I never watched that soap or any soap)

    the movie and play have been banned in thailand. they play very fast and loose with the facts. that particular king lived to a ripe old age, for example. i still love it though. all their songs are fantastic up to the chinatown one, which was awful.

    Even the film “Anna and the KIng” was based on a semi-fictionalized biographical novel “Anna and the King of Siam” by Margret Landon. It was unlikely that Anna and Rama IV (Mongkut) had any kind of romantic relationship since he was in his late 60’s at the time.

    I never knew Deborah Kerr was dubbed! Although it did have its own stupid moments, in a pick between the two I’d go with the 1956 version, it seemed less icky and the romance aspect was played down more. Plus I liked the song Yul Brynner sang.

    Thanks. I had forgotten. I knew her first name was Marni, but I couldn’t remember her last name. I wanted to say Maitland, but I knew that was wrong. Marni Maitland isn’t a singer. Julie Andrews has said she believes the reason she received an Oscar for “Mary Poppins”, and not Audrey Hepburn, was because she hadn’t been cast in “My Fair Lady.

    I recall reading at a Thai site about the infamous American bastardization of their history. It was considered a national insult unfortunately. (There was even a very short tv series starring Yul Brynner based upon the musical and his role of the King of Siam.) Did you know that after the USA Thailand adopted the British Boy Scouts early last century?

    He looked more like Rex Harrison, who played him in the 1940s non-musical “Anna abd the King”. Harrison was mighty flattered till he saw a photo of the original King.

    “Something Wonderful” is actually my favorite song from that, since she could be singing about me. Followed by “Is a Puzzlement”.
