1956 Motion Picture

Rodgers & HammersteinThe King and I

Released on Capitol Records, the 1956 Motion Picture Soundtrack album for The King and I included three songs that didn’t make it into the final version of the movie: “My Lord and Master,” “I Have Dreamed” and “Shall I Tell You What I Think of You?” The soundtrack, featuring new arrangements by Gus Levene, was conducted by Alfred Newman. Marni Nixon dubbed Deborah Kerr’s vocals, after working closely with Kerr to mimic her speech patterns. The film’s soundtrack recording, along with other Rodgers & Hammerstein cast recordings, was rereleased in stereo in 1958.
