But now a sad warning: If you own the old DVD and want this beauty of a film in its complete roadshow version - keep it by all means! The new 50th Anniversary Edition lacks the Overture, the Intermission Music and the Exit Music!
Incredible! And all that lush music was available on the 1999 DVD! What goes on in the heads of the people in charge at Fox? After the fiasco with the Todd-AO "Oklahoma!" recently, Fox should very well know by now that fans of these Rodgers & Hammerstein-films are not likely to accept inferior and sloppy product. Here's a loud and clear boo aimed at Fox Home Video top brass from one fan! Get yourselves new jobs outside the entertainment industry and leave the DVD-business to smart film lovers who are also responsible professionals!
All of that said, this is a gorgeous transfer of a beautiful film, both visually and sonically. The deluxe laserdisc set was very pretty, but the DVD image is much sharper and clearer.Read more ›
This DVD has been available for a while in the UK and Australia, and will finally get a US release this November. Extra features will include the pilot episode of the "Anna and the King" TV series starring Samantha Eggar and Brynner (with optional commentary by Eggar); vintage performances from the "General Foods" Rodgers & Hammerstein TV tribute (Patricia Morison and Brynner). Several new featurettes and rare MovieTone news segments.

|Blu Ray "The King and I"?????||
This is an utterly beguiling musical and dates very well from 1956 which was when I first saw it. What wonderful melodies and brilliant performances from the cast, even from supporting players. As I recall The Cinemascope 55 process was the earliest attempt at widescreen HD which was very good... Read More

"Shall I Tell You What I Think of You?" was never in the final film, nor any video release. It only appears on the original soundtrack album, along with other deleted songs that were never in the final film. Your DVD is not defective; the song was never there to begin with.

|How does 50th anniversay ed. differ?||
Recent reviews: the older version contains the overture and intermission embodying the entire theater aura with its visual and musical ferocity. The newer version is visually technically improved.

Agreed! As an Amazon vendor myself, it is certain that the ratings for shipment belong in the seller feedback section, not the ratings for the product itself. I just wasted a while looking at the 1-star and 2-star reviews and most of them were complaining about shipping issues.

Amazon in Germany sells the TV-series, maybe you could get it there. But it seems, that it is in german only.
