Yul Brynner: Hollywood’s Russian Pharoah

Yul Brynner: Hollywood’s Russian Pharaoh

1956 was the year of Yul Brynner in Hollywood. That year Yul wowed to movie audiences as the charming Oriental king in “The King and I”, the arrogant Pharaoh Ramses in “The Ten Commandments” and a conniving Russian exile in “Anastasia”. Yul Brynner is one of my favorite actors because there has only been one Yul Brynner – he was an exquisitely unique, beautiful and inspirational talent!
Yul Brynner, with his exotic looks. commanding presence and mysterious background was the most exciting movie star since Valentino. “The King and I”, “Anastasia” and “The Ten Commandments” were three brilliant films and to reward Yul for his amazing work in “The King and I” he won the Oscar for best actor. My other favorite Yul Brynner films include “The Journey”, “Brothers Karamazov”, and “The Magnificent Seven”. Like Monroe, Yul Brynner was a creature of the 1950’s, an icon for an era.
