Yul Brynner (1920 - 1985)

Yul Brynner (1920 – 1985)

Yul Brynner was an actor most famous for his portrayal of King Mongkut in Rodger and Hammerstein’s musical, ‘The King and I’. Writing this article brought back many fond memories of my childhood. When I was a child, my parents let me watch the old 1956 version of ‘The King And I’ and I was held spellbound by Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr’s performance, especially when they sang ‘Shall We Dance’.

After researching Yul Brynner’s life, I had mixed feelings about him. I knew he was talented and successful but I also discovered that he had a hidden past which he kept secret for quite a while. However in spite of all that, he was passionate in helping others. He used his fame to champion the plight of refugees and took up the position as Special Consultant for Refugees with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Even when he was dying of lung cancer, he made it a point to bring awareness to the very cause of his cancer – smoking.

I deeply rejoice that he used his fame to lessen other people’s suffering. At the end of the day, no matter how successful we are, nobody can escape death. Therefore, we should use our time wisely.

I hope you enjoy reading this short article about this multi-talented actor, author, singer, activist and photographer who played the role of King Mongkut an incredible 4,625 times!

The Beginning

Born on 11 July 1920 in Vladivostok, Russia, Yul Brynner was given the name Yuli Borisovich Briner. His father was a mining engineer named Boris Yuliyevich Briner of mixed Swiss-German and Russian descent. His mother was Marousia Dimitrievna of Russian descent. Yul Brynner was named after his paternal grandfather, Jules Briner. He also inherited the Buryat-Mongolian ancestry through his paternal grandmother, Natalya Yosifovna Kurkutova.

During his lifetime, very few people knew about Yul Brynner’s background. He liked to tease people by keeping his real ancestry a secret. At one time, he claimed to be a half-Swiss and half-Japanese man by the name of Taidje Khan and born on the island of Sakhalin. Yul Brynner remained a private person as he declared:

“People don’t know my real self, and they’re not about to find out.”

The closest he came to revealing his background was when he briefly mentioned his Mongolian ancestry,

“I am just a nice clean cut Mongolian boy.”

According to his friend J. Lee Thompson, Yul Brynner did not reveal much about his childhood or his parents, but

“…we [his friends] knew that somewhere there was something that had hurt him in days gone by. Here was this man who was the king, who overpowered everybody that he came in contact with, and yet you would see him sometimes sitting down and a glimpse of tears would come to his eyes and he would be thinking deeply about something. I knew that Yul with all his bombast was also a very human person who had been hurt and had largely succeeded in covering up those wounds.”

It was not until the publication of the biographies, ‘Yul: The Man Who Would Be King’ and ‘Empire and Odyssey’ by his son, Yul “Rock” Brynner II (“Rock Brynner”), that the public got a glimpse of the earlier part of his life.

In 1923, when Yul Brynner was just three, his father had an affair with another woman, Katya Kornukova, an actress at Moscow Art Theatre, and soon abandoned his family. Perhaps, the emotional scars remained with him and made him into this brooding and intensely private person. After her husband left her, Marousia took her children Yul and Vera Brynner to Harbin, China where they attended a YMCA school.

In 1932 (some sources state 1934), sensing the rising tensions between Japan and China, Marousia moved her family to Paris, France in order to avoid the impending war. Although he was enrolled at an exclusive school in France, Lycée Moncelle, Yul Brynner was not interested in school. He instead wanted to be in the performing arts. He dropped out of school and subsequently worked as a trapeze artist in a famous circus, Cirque d’Hiver. It was during this time that Yul Brynner developed an appreciation for Gypsy folk songs and culture. In the documentary ‘Yul Brynner: The Man Who Was King’, his agent Guy McElwayne said:

His Gypsy background, which he was very proud of, gave him incredible sense of belonging wherever he was. When he was in America, he was an American. When he was in France, he was French…

During his 5th year in the circus, Yul Brynner suffered a back injury and his career as a trapeze artist came to an abrupt end. Subsequently, he played the guitar, primarily Gypsy songs, at various Russian nightclubs in Paris. In 1938, Marousia was diagnosed with leukaemia and the family briefly moved back to Harbin, China.

 

The Successful Career of Yul Brynner

In 1940, Yul Brynner and his mother decided to emigrate to the United States. They arrived in New York City on 25 October 1940 and were greeted by his sister, Vera, who had emigrated before them and worked as a singer on Broadway.

Michael Chekov

Yul Brynner’s acting mentor, Michael Chekov

Yul Brynner worked as a French-speaking radio commentator for the US Office of War Information during World War II where he broadcasted into German-occupied France. Around the same time, he studied under the tutelage of multi-talented Russian-American actor, Michael Chekhov. In December 1941, Yul Brynner performed his first Broadway show as Fabian in Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’. Subsequently, he worked in the television series ‘Mr. Jones and His Neighbors’ and another Broadway play, ‘Lute Song’ with actress Mary Martin. Although Yul Brynner only won mild acclaim for his work in ‘Lute Song’, his friendship with Mary Martin would later bring him the biggest acting role in his career.

In 1944, Yul Brynner married his first wife, actress Virginia Gilmore, and began his career as a film and television director at CBS. His directing debut was ‘Life with Snarky Parker’ (1950), a children’s puppet show. The show aired for eight months before it was cancelled. He eventually established himself as a successful director after directing the films ‘Studio One in Hollywood’ (1948), ‘Danger’ (1950) and ‘Omnibus’ (1952).

Mary Martin

In 1950, Mary Martin encouraged Yul Brynner to audition for the role of King Mongkut of Siam in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s new musical, ‘The King and I’. Although he was initially reluctant to return to the stage, he became fascinated with the character of King Mongkut and eventually agreed to join the cast for the original Broadway production in 1951. Yul Brynner was asked to shave his head for the role and he agreed. Since then, he kept his head shaved and his bald head became his most notable trademark.

Yul Brynner was sensational as King Mongkut and he won two Tony Awards. Throughout his career, he reprised the role 4,625 times. He also played the role of King Mongkut in the 1956 film version of ‘The King and I’ and won an Academy Award for Best Actor. In his acceptance speech, he famously said:

I hope this is not a mistake, because I won’t give it back for anything in the world. Thank you very much.

The film version of ‘The King and I’ was launched in the same year as Yul Brynner’s two other blockbuster films, ‘The Ten Commandments’ in which he played the role of Ramesses II and ‘Anastasia’ in which he played the role of General Bounine. ‘The Ten Commandments’ is considered one of the most commercially successful films of all time. After the success of these three films in which he played the leading roles, Yul Brynner achieved worldwide fame and became one of Hollywood’s A-list leading men. One year later on 8 February 1960, he received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California.

Due to his exotic good looks and macho appearance, he was typically cast in strong leading roles such as kings, an Egyptian Pharaoh and a Western gunslinger.

In addition to being an actor and director, Yul Brynner was also an accomplished photographer, author and guitarist. He actively took many photographs of friends, family members and refugees whom he met while serving as the Special Consultant on Refugees for the UNHCR.

Yul Brynner wrote two books, ‘Bring Forth the Children: A Journey to the Forgotten People of Europe and the Middle East’ (1960) and ‘The Yul Brynner Cookbook: Food Fit for the King and You’ (1983). Victoria Brynner, his daughter, compiled the photographs he took during his lifetime and published a book entitled ‘Yul Brynner: Photographer’.

Yul Brynner was passionate about refugee issues which arose from his interest in collecting United Nations Refugee stamps. This led to him taking up the post as Special Consultant on Refugees for the UNHCR. He took the job seriously and used his fame to bring awareness to the sufferings of refugees around the world from Asia to the Middle East. Although there were times when entering a refugee campsite was risky business with patrolling local armies, Yul Brynner remained fearless. His friends believe that it was his Gypsy background that made him so. He also made two documentaries to highlight refugee issues.

 

The Personal Life of Yul Brynner

Yul Brynner’s personal life was not ordinary. He had numerous love affairs with many women and was married a total of four times, to:

  1. Virginia Gilmore (1944 – 1960; divorced; 1 child – Rock Brynner)
  2. Doris Kleiner (1960 – 1967; divorced; 1 child – Victoria Brynner)
  3. Jaqueline de Croisset (1971-1981; divorced; 2 adopted children – Mia and Melody Brynner)
  4. Kathy Lee (1983 – 1985; his death)

He had an interesting opinion of women in general. One of his famous quotes about women was:

Girls have an unfair advantage over men: if they can’t get what they want by being smart, they can get it by being dumb.

Yul Brynner also had a daughter, Lark Brynner, with German actress Frances Martin and was godfather to French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. One of his daughters, Victoria Brynner is a successful businesswoman in her own right. She founded her company, Stardust Visions and Stardust Celebrities, a photo-production company in Los Angeles, California in 1992. Actress Audrey Hepburn was her godmother.

 

The Death of Yul Brynner

Yul Brynner began smoking at the age of 12 and chain smoked until he kicked the habit in 1971. In 1983, he found a lump in his throat and decided to go for a medical checkup. He received his test results several hours before his 4,000th performance in ‘The King and I’. The test results revealed that although his throat was fine, he was suffering from inoperable lung cancer and given three months to live.

Yul Brynner took several months off to undergo therapy which made it difficult for him to sing or speak. Therefore, during some performances, his son Rock Brynner would dub his voice from the seat beside the conductor. During one of these performances, Rock Brynner came to see him during the intermission. Yul Brynner embraced him and whispered:

You must play the king older now Rock. I am older. You are playing it like a 30-year-old. You are now, and I was then. But now it is an older king.

Although he was sick, Yul Brynner decided to continue to work and therefore ‘The King and I’ tour resumed. He ended the 4,625th show and his last performance as King Mongkut on 30 June 1985.

Acting gave him something to look forward to and Yul Brynner ended up living for two years after his initial cancer diagnosis. Aware that he was dying from a disease caused by smoking, he accepted an interview on Good Morning America in which he spoke of the dangers of smoking.

Yul Brynner passed away from lung cancer on 10 October 1985. He was cremated and his ashes were buried in the Abbey of Saint-Michel de Bois Aubry, France. Several days after his passing, the anti-smoking public service announcement that he recorded prior to his death was aired on all major television networks in the United States and other countries. In the commercial, he poignantly said:

Now that I’m gone, I tell you: Don’t smoke, whatever you do, just don’t smoke. If I could take back that smoking, we wouldn’t be talking about any cancer. I’m convinced of that.

    Well there you have it, smoking can get you to have a shorter life.

      To add on to that, Yul Brynner is one of many few actors and actresses who have reached the pinnacle of success yet still gives time for humanitarian causes. They use their fame and influence to do good, in this case for the Children that are usually one of the first casualties of war.

  2. Samfoonheei on Nov 22, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Inspiring biography of Yul Brynner (1920 – 1985).I do not know much of him other then watching his show Anna and the King many years back.He was a talented actor and director, Yul Brynner was also a good photographer, author and guitarist as well.He was a Special Consultant on Refugees,Even though he was sick he try to bring awareness of smoking bad for health in all major television networks in the United States and other countries..A beautiful quote by him…..We are born alone, we live alone, we die alone, everything in between is a gift .Very true.
    Thank you Valentina a very inspiring post.

  3. Stella Cheang on Nov 16, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    It is an enjoyable read on the biography of Yul Brynner, who played the role of King Mongkut. It is little known that Yul Brynner had a sad past and that he was multi-talented; in addition to being an actor and director, he was also an accomplished photographer, author, guitarist and philanthropist. He put his past behind him and wooed the world with his excellent acting is something we can learn from. Thank you Valentina for this article.

  4. freon on Nov 16, 2016 at 12:45 am

    Dear Valentina,

    I remembered i watched the movie ‘The King and I’ when i was very young. Yul Brynner have leave an impression on the King’s image that he cast in. It is quite shocking that a person can play the same role for over 4000 times! His determination and consistency is incredible.

    Thank you for writing this story

  5. shelly tai on Nov 15, 2016 at 1:40 pm

    Thank you Valentina for this inspiring post . I don’t really know about this actor but after reading his life story he is a wise man and intelligent man I personally like the quote that he said ‘we are born alone, we live alone, we die alone, everything in between is a gift , to me this quote sound very Dharma this is what happen to all of us.

  6. Sharon Ong on Nov 12, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    “The King and I” is one of those classics that will not fade into obscurity with time. I remember watching the black and white version and was utterly enthralled with the famous epic dance scene where Yul Brynner waltzed with Deborah Kerr. Years later, when I watched the musical, although the lead actor was good, I felt that the role of the King of Siam belonged to Yul alone and no one would come close.

    It is such a pity that his life and acting career was cut short due to his cancer. But what he did towards the end of his life is inspiring. Not many people would do what he did. His passion and dedication to his art made him rise above his illness and he gave his all, even after he lost his voice.

    His poignant anti-smoking commercial is probably one of his best performance. Spoken from the heart, honest and brave. Kudos to Yul for using his illness and fame to speak about the ills of smoking.

    Thank you for this interesting read, Valentina.

    Yul Brynner was a multi-talented actor, singer, author and photographer with a kind heart. He used his fame as Special Consultant for Refugees with the United Nation High Commissioner to look into the plight of refugees from Asia and the middle east. He even risked his life by entering the campsites and he also made two documentaries to high the refugees issue.
    Before he died of lung cancer he spoke of the danger of smoking.
    Thank you Velentina for sharing the great actor Yul Brynner’s life with us. I really enjoyed his show ‘The King and I’ and also ‘The Ten Commandments.’
    I also saw the remade of “The King and I’ with Chow Yun Fatt, the Hong Kong famous actor as the King and part of the location was done in the states, of Perak and Penang.

  8. Fong on Nov 12, 2016 at 1:46 am

    A man who showed strength of character, he refused to talk about his sad past. It did not diminished him as a person, instead made him stronger and kinder. From as painful past he learnt to care for others in his work with the UNHCR as Special Consultant on Refugees.

    And, back when people did not talk about their illness, he championed a disease that still affects millions today – lung cancer. He stood up and voiced his concern and advised smokers to mend their ways. There was no hint of bitterness is these acts of his.

    Hats off to man who used his influence and stature for the betterment of others and not let his paind affect what he became.

  9. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 11, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    Yul Brynner was a man of many talents and accomplishments -acting, photography and writing. One of the two books he wrote was a cookbook! Yes,the world remembered him best as the King in the film “King and I” and also for the famous dance scene in “King and I”. He won an academy award as best actor for the film. He had a great passion for acting and continued to act despite being very sick and until the last few months of his life.

    His humane side is seen in his work as a special consultant on Refugees for the United Nations, where he bought the suffering of Refugees to the knowledge of the world. He was brave too, going into dangerous refugee camps possible to see for himself the actual situation.

    It is good for him to have spoken up against smoking and to show the world that it was smoking that had caused his cancer and would kill him.

    Yes Yul Bynner is a remarkable person. I admire him for his courage to speak up and let the world know about two big issues -the suffering of refugees and the terrible consequences of smoking.

  10. Joy Kam on Nov 11, 2016 at 3:14 am

    The King and I is perhaps one of the best classics that is ever green until today. And it was one of my favourite movies when I was growing up as a kid. But like many people, we did not know much of this actor Yul Brynner, well at least I did not know right up until now.

    It is interesting and inspiring to see how he continues to work even though he had cancer he carried on working. But what is most inspiring is that he used this illness of his to spread more awareness on cancer and the risk we take when we smoke. I am glad due to Rinpoche’s instructions I have quite smoking. Cancer is actually in all of us, it what we do that would trigger it from opening up like eating etc. Hence we so our very best to ensure it does not happen.

  11. May Ong on Nov 10, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    When we asked people if they remembered the movie “The King & I”, we will get the reply, Oh! They remembered Yul Brynner as the Siam (Thai) king singing and dancing around with the English school teacher and governess to his children.

    That scene has remained as one of the most popular memories for many. Yul Brynner was literally the icon of the movie “The King and I”, as with Elizabeth Taylor, the actress to the movie “Cleopatra” as the female pharaoh of ancient Egypt.

    Most of us knew of Yul Brynner as a famous actor but wasn’t aware that he was a strong supporter of the UN to help to bring relieve of sufferings of refugees around the world from Asia to the Middle East. Reading about his autobiography is an eye opener to many for he had strong presence as an actor as well as being a humanitarian activist.

  12. Sofi on Nov 9, 2016 at 11:28 pm

    Thank you Valentina for writing this article. It evoked many memories of younger years when I sat glued to watching his movies on videos. I actually read the book “The King and I” before I watched the movie. The movie made the imagination from reading comes through although many parts were left out in the movie due to time constraint. Yul Brynner was good in his role as the King as his reserved manner matches the command of a King and at the same time you see his emotions bubbling behind his demeanour. It is nice to learn that he was an avid humanitarian volunteering at UNHCR using his fame to lend clout to the care of others. He had always seemed to have very deep thoughts and very private. Now with this article we learn more of him and his achievements. A good visit in memory of a famous actor who is more than his fame & fortune.

    Over the past 40 years, China have gone from traditional dynastic structure by passing a number of countries to become world powerful nation . China, under the powerful leadership , China may overtake the United States soon or later in trade , economy , technology and so forth. China is seen as harbouring the ambition to play a bigger and more important role on the world stage . China’s economic expansion and diplomatic have influence countries to befriend China and looking forward to China for help in the economic growth. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to befriend China. Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will surely benefits both sides. Having a dialogue ,mutual understanding and respect will be good for them for the growth of their country and benefit of their people. The Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) holds the first workshop to enhance Chinese Outreach Campaign is a good beginning for both countries. HH Dalai Lama and many more Tibetans are looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be materialised with the Tibetan leadership having more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government to solve all the political problems and Dorje Shugden controversy.
    May the Dorje Shugden issue soon be dissolved for the sake of peace and harmony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    Comics storytelling is the only art form in which words and pictures are blended together in an integral way to tell a story. Rejoice Kechara has taken the platform of comic storytelling to the next level with its launching of Kechara Comics. From traditional folk tales to biographies of past Buddhist masters and real-life stories of people , all in comics. That’s wonderful bringing more and more people closer to understand better of Dorje Shugden and dharma.
    Congrats to the writers team for coming out with the first publication of Kechara Comics title “Karuna Find A Way”. I did enjoyed reading this comic . Its fantastic I could only say.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this wonderful sharing .

    The true guru helps us open the channel to our own wisdom and discover our guru within. Guru is the one who teaches us and shows us the path to liberation. It’s very important for us to hold on the commitment to our root teacher, who taught us the practices nor matter what happens. Rinpoche has since holding on to it showing a deep guru devotion to his root teacher……HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche who gave Rinpoche the practice of Dorje Shugden.
    Many highly attained Lamas such as HH Kyabje Pabongka Dorje Chang, HH Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang, HH Kyabje Zong Dorje Chang teaches has since practiced, received the practice and taught thousands of Lamas the lineage and the meditation of Dorje Shugden . They cannot be wrong . Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit but a Protector.
    Due to the ban, families , monasteries and many more has suffered, denied services to hospital, schools , attending events talks and so forth. It’s sad many families and monasteries are torn apart by this. There is more than enough evidence that there is no religious freedom or true democracy within Tibetan society which the Tibetan Learership has denied it.
    Interesting read of all the examples of what the Tibetan leadership had said , Dorje Shugden harms the Dalai Lama, and the people, all these is definitely not true. HH Dalai Lama the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people is in fact Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig). It is impossible that HH Dalai Lama and anyone could be harmed by Dorje Shugden. Every one should be respected one and other even though they are from different religions and faith. Everyone should be given religious freedom to choose what they believe and pray . Showing compassion, love, tolerance and understanding among all people is a good choice , to live in a peaceful and harmony environment. The Tibetan Leardership (CTA) should not discriminate anyone and not be bias against someone due to their religion.
    The truth is the truth and must be reveal to all. May the ban on Dorje Shugden soon be lifted. A clear explanation tells all by Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this details write up.

    Supriyono lived in a village in Indonesia’s East Java Province. In early October 2011, he dreamt of a bluish-red dragon surrounding his village before it finally dived into an old well. Supriyono took the dream as a sign and located the old well in the Brahu Temple complex in the Trowulan sub-district of East Java Province.

    On 11th October 2011, Supriyono climbed down the well and found a beautiful White Tara statue, coins, and golden stones from the Majapahit Empire (1293-1500 CE). He contacted the collector Johan Yan through his friend to see if he was interested in any of the items found. On 26th March 2012, Johan Yan became the owner of the White Tara statue.

    In order for KFR to truly become a place of healing, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has conceived a number of ideas including the newly-opened Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain. Embedded within the fountain are semi-precious stones that were especially consecrated by Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung Oracle; His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, widely accepted to be a living emanation of Vajrayogini; our own Tsem Rinpoche and His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha himself. When the water runs over these stones, it becomes charged with the healing properties of the stones and imbued with its blessings.

    The Dorje Shugden controversy has been going for over two decades. Our Guru H.E. Tsem Rinpoche is one of the many who specks out openly about this issue publicly. Having the courage, brave and honest to explain the truth to those who did not understand the whole situation.
    The Dorje Shugden’s practice have been given to Rinpoche by his root teacher Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, for spiritual purposes. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened Dharma Protector who manifested about 400 years ago from a lineage of erudite masters. Over these years many erudite masters, monks, lamas have been practicing over decades before the ban. Rinpoche has been patiently over the years to provide accurate knowledge about Dorje Shugden across the globe. These truths must be reveal to all. The truth is the truth. It has proven that the practise Dorje Shugden, we do not go to the lower realms. Many highly attained lamas practised Dorje Shugden till the end of his life and has since reincarnated back . They have even composed prayers to Dorje Shugden, give Dorje Shugden initiation, give teachings and promote Dorje Shugden as well. They believe that they will not go to the three lower realms, and will definitely reincarnate into another human form to be recognized, enthroned and continue turning the wheel of Dharma. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting and details write up for us to understand better.

    Reincarnation is religious concept that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical body after biological death. Reincarnation do definitely exist and I do believe . There are scientific proof that shows reincarnation is real and there a number of proven case. Reincarnation facts has proven by science and historically and is regarded by many religions. It is believed that the biological death does not destroy the soul, the soul comes back to earth in a different form, in a different body. In Tibetan Buddhism it is considered common, where there is many highly attained lamas has reincarnated back over and over again. One such example was His Holiness Zong Rinpoche. Interesting watch and I do pick new knowledge from there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
