Summary Note

Kenneth goes into great detail on the law suit in which the Landon's fought for property rights with Twentieth Century Fox and CBS. They were doing a television series of The King and I with Yule Brynner and had not received permission to do so. This caused quite an outcry, and through a lengthy trial, the Landon's settled. They had primarily fought for Margaret's rights, and gave any monetary winnings to the lawyers to split. (Length 16:55)
