YUL BRYNNER, THE MAGNIFICENT

documentary

Summary

Conceived like an adventure movie full of twists, this 52 minute, archive-based documentary is the first to tell the incredible story of Yul Brynner, the most exotic actor and sex-symbol since Rudolph Valentino. The international nomad’s atypical destiny takes him through multiple colorful circles : from Parisian cabarets to Broadway stages, all the way to Hollywood studios. All of these spheres toe the line between reality and fiction and beckon the modelling of a king size persona.

Witness the rise to fame of a Gypsy who became a king in Hollywwod
