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.

  7. Adeline Tan on Nov 12, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    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.

    Interesting biography of a great and influential Gelug religious lady……the Lady Lhalu Lhacham Yangdzom Tsering, who was one of the most popular and also an important aristocratic students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. She was one of the influential Gelug religious figures in the Lhasa at that time. The Lhacham’s devotion to the controversial protector deity Dorje Shugden whose practice she received from Kyabje Phabongkha Rinpoche is beautifully reflected in her deep spiritual conviction in the very deities and practices. Interesting read of a GREAT spiritual lady of how she struggles in life and never gave up her commitments to her guru Kyabje Pabongka Dorjechang. Her dertermination, motivation and inspiration are indeed incredible .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu.

    Sakya Pandita is believed to have been an emanation of Manjushri and just like other great beings, when he was born, several auspicious signs appeared such as at the time of his birth, the sky was awash with a great light, a certain special physical marks on his body etc.

    It is very impressive that he learned to read both Sanskrit and Tibetan scripts without being taught. On one incident, Shakyashri Bhadra was giving teachings in Sanskrit but Sakya Pandita was seen referring to a Tibetan text. Nevertheless, Sakya Pandita was still able to understand his guru’s teachings perfectly. Besides, During the 13-day debate between Sakya Pandita and Harinanda (the six non-Buddhist Indian pandits) and Harinanda could not win the argument. Finally, Harinanda said, “It is not you I cannot defeat, it is the orange being sitting above your right shoulder.” This showed that Sakya Panidita is no different from Manjushri.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this meaningful post.

    The Body of a Buddha: A Road Map to Liberation

    In Buddhism, we often pray to the statues or representations of the Buddha. Many people said that we are idolistic but actually we are praying to the virtues and good quality that Buddha’s body represents. We do not pray to the statue just because it is in the form of a Buddha, we pray because we wish to achieve the same qualities of the body that manifested into these signs.

    The Buddha’s body consists of 112 marks where 32 of them are major signs and 80 minor signs. Each and every one of these signs represent the virtues that Buddha had practised over 3 great aeons to achieve what he is today, enlightened.

    Every single one of the signs is the guideline for us to practice. For example, the dharma wheel at the bottom of Buddha’s feet means that we should have the selfless attitude when we serve other and one of the best ways is to teach them Dharma. The Buddha has said, the best gift is the gift of Dharma.

    Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing about this incredible lady with us. She is very inspiring and she showed us that with her unwavering guru devotion towards Kyabe Pabongkha Rinpoche bears fruit when she attained high attainments and stayed in Tukdam for 3 days when she passes away.

    Lady Lhalu is incredible because being an aristocrat, she enjoyed a life of leisure. However, that did not deter her from a life of spirituality. She was one of Pabongkha Rinpoche’s main sponsor that time and she was the one who requested the teachings of the famous 24 days Lamrim teachings which proven to be very beneficial when Trijang Rinpoche compiled notes on the teachings and published them later as a book called Lamrim.

    Until today, this book is still being used by Buddhist centres all over the world. Here in Kechara, we too used this book as the main reference in our Dharma classes and the profound teaching has benefited alot of people.

    Read more about Lady Lhalu here:

    Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe after people die, the consciousness will take rebirth again and again. The consciousness can take rebirth as a human, animal, ghost or god. It all depends on the karma. In the US, Dr. Brain Weiss, who is a prominent psychiatrist and a leading reincarnation researcher found pieces of evidence to prove reincarnation does exist.

    The bigger the Buddha statue is, the better it is, because more beings can be blessed by seeing the Buddha statue. Not only that, dharma seeds will be planted in the mind of those who see the Buddha statue as well. It is said that a big outdoor Buddha statue can help to calm the surrounding environment and pacify natural disasters. We have some big outdoor statues in Malaysia too. If you have not heard of them, do read the article below to learn more.

    Guava is a very common fruit in Malaysia, they can be found easily in the markets and supermarkets. They might not look very attractive, but they are full of goodness for our health. Some of the benefits of Guava including relieving diarrhea & dysentery, acting as an effective laxative, boosting our immunity, just to name a few.

    Shocking to know the history of the American-Japanese during the WWII in 1942, where discrimination did happened at that time. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people is really sad. Rinpoche did experienced the share of discrimination within the Kalmyk community in New Jersey years back. Looks like it happen every now and then in our society. Many thousands of Japanese Americans suffered badly , sent into interior camps, land, housing, businesses and lives were all taken away. Thanks to the photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. who has been tracking down wartime pictures. Looking through pictures, paints a thousand words of sorrow, suffering those Japanese Americans had gone through. Even what they went through , they did not give up but made them stronger in fact to be what they are today. They were citizens of American yet it was an injustice to them. There are similarities happening to those who practiced Dorje Shugden. The practitioners were denied services to schools, medical treatment, hotel and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Seeing the Kechara flag in the pictures being flown are indeed wonderful. Flying with our country and state flags paints a thousand words of joy. Glad to come across this old post which explained the meaning behind it. Wow ….so it was designed by Rinpoche , have each stroke of wording and the white background representing the clear, luminous mind of enlightenment, of the state of peace and the state of happiness which we strive to achieve. Beautifully done.
    Thank you Rinpoche for spending the explanation for the design of the flag which I did not know at all . i am glad i read this old post.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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
