When, towards the end of his life, Yul Brynner was challenged to explain the conflicting accounts of the time and place of his origins that he'd given in almost every interview, he declared imperiously: 'Ordinary mortals need but one birthday. In a rare moment of levity, he described himself as 'just a nice, clean- cut Mongolian boy'. He at least got the middle bit right. He was actually born Yuliy Borisovich Briner in in Vladivostok, of Swiss-Eurasian ancestry; his father was a mining engineer and his mother was a singer and actress.
Famous for his work on stage and in film, the Russian-born actor Yul Brynner is now being toasted for his longtime passion for photography. Handsome with his distinctive shaved head and charismatic with his mix of European and Gypsy savoir-faire, Brynner was adored by fans and a prized pal to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and Charlie Chaplin. Married with children four times, as well as having a child out of wedlock with a woman that he continued to support, Brynner had a lot of family to document as they traveled between America and Europe. And with a camera always on hand, he documented directors, actors, and crew members on the sets of his celebrated movies, including The King and I , The Ten Commandments , Anastasia , The Brothers Karamazov , and The Testament of Orpheus.
