Summary Note

Mary Martin was a more "broad-minded" person than Gertrude Lawrence. She also wanted the role of Anna, but she wouldn't have been right for it. She met Margaret, and the two had a lovely time. By her suggestion, Yul Brynner was eventually chosen as the king for the movie, which made the contest between Anna and the king a very real one. (Length 4:30)
