Blogging from A to Z April Challenge - B for Yul Brynner

Yul Brynner (Russian: Юлий Борисович Бринер, Yuliy Borisovich Briner; July 11, 1920 – October 10, 1985) was a Russian-born United States-based film and stage actor. He was best known for his portrayal of the King of Siam in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I, for which he won two Tony Awards and an Academy Award for the film version; he played the role 4,625 times on stage. He is also remembered as Rameses II in the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille blockbuster The Ten Commandments, General Bounine in the 1956 film Anastasia and Chris Adams in The Magnificent Seven. Brynner was noted for his distinctive voice and for his shaved head, which he maintained as a personal trademark long after adopting it in 1951 for his role in The King and I. Earlier, he was a model and television director, and later a photographer and the author of two books.

  1. I have seen a few Challenge posts appear early! Three weeks and counting...

  3. LOL I did that last year - accidentally hit "publish" but hadn't scheduled it yet. Then I deleted it but hadn't saved it.
    Actually, now I'm very tempted to publish one of my completed posts as a teaser "oops". ( I was very careful to save everything this year.) :)


[Retro] Love the Comments, not so much the Spam... so I have enough man-pills, fake gold watches and link-back options that I need. Thank you!
