The King and I (1956) Poster

Alternate Versions

In the 1961 rerelease (the 70mm blow-up version), right after the 20th Century Fox logo at the beginning, in place of "A Cinemascope Picture in Cinemascope 55," was "In Grandeur 70" (same background, but the text was huge, streamlined and stretched across the screen in a banner-like curve).
An overture was added to the film (and intermission and exit music as well) for the 1961 reissue, but they were cobbled together from pieces of the film's underscore. Although an Overture had been recorded specifically for the soundtrack album (released in 1956), it was never used on the film itself.
