It was 1962 and Brynner needed a role.

He really wanted to do a musical but Mama Rose and Marian Peru were already cast.

An even worse one is Kings of the Sun from 1963 where Yul is a Native American and non-actors George Chakiris and Shirley Anne Field (British starlet) are both expressionless as Inca or is it Maya royalty who flee from the bad people. It is an absolute hoot and so bad its just bad.

By the way, we propped up the Romanovs for a couple of centuries.

They paid handsomely.
