Movieland Wax Museum- The King and I

This scene from the Movieland Wax Museum shows the classic film The King and I. Here we see Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner. These were great figures, and this tableaux was often featured in advertisements, particularly in the museum's earlier days.

With the flash on, we can see more detail in the figure. How easy would it be to put a cowboy outfit on this figure and create a Westworld scene.

The Deborah Kerr figure is also detailed. Full torso figures are more difficult to produce than the typical head and hands style.

The scene from a slightly different angle.

The clapboard sign with some minor details about the film.

The figures were not for sale at the Movieland auction, but the set minus a few props sold for $200. The Yul Brynner figure, and perhaps the Deborah Kerr figure ended up at the World Wax Museum in South Korea.
