I saw on you tube a brief appearance of Yul Brynner(also: Brinner) with the great Aliocha Dimitrievitch, both playing guitars and singing in russian/kasach (?) - GREAT! Would like to find a DVD/ Audio CD/ even LP if existing! Can Anybody Help PLEASE?

clarinda_claraDec 31, 2009

I know of another affair between Yul Bynner and another famous actress. How cn I post info plus foto? Thanks. Best actor in the world.

PhoebeDec 18, 2009

I knew Yul in the early 70`s when I was about 22. He taught me to be a refined, educated woman and influenced my life greatly. We were together for only a short time but since I have compared every man in my life to him and found them lacking. Perhaps that is why I`ve been married 4 times!

RichardSep 19, 2009

I thought Yul was born in 1915 the same year as Orson Wells and they died on the same day in 1985 aged about 70.

Yul Brynner, was in the King and I and that is a very good movie. So good I could die. (Get it? He died in the movie. And he did his character so many times. Guess how many exceteras that was!

Carol RodriguezMay 16, 2009

For me it was `the walk`, very animal like and suggestive. His eyes too because you could read them, humor, intensity, anger, and passion.
