Trivia & History

Marlon Brando was considered for the role of The King. Maureen O'Hara was originally cast as Anna, but Richard Rodgers refused the casting saying, "No pirate queen is going to play my Anna!". Dinah Shore was also considered for Anna. Dorothy Dandridge, the first African American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress (for Carmen Jones), was the original choice for Tuptim, but refused because Tuptim was a slave.
