That sexy pointer that Anna uses in the movie!
Dear "TK&I" Enthusiasts,
I recently watched the 1956 movie version of "The King & I", and I realized that I really, really like the pointer that Anna uses when she's teaching the King's children. Said pointer is a long, brown stick, but the end of it is a white, gloved hand; the hand is sorta like a Mickey Mouse hand, but it's far more thin and sexy!
Anyway, I love the sexy design of the pointer, but I don't know if such a pointer would have been used during 1862, or if THAT pointer was just a Hollywood invention, which was never based upon any historical research. I'm also curious to know if the prop pointer was made from wood, or from plastic.
Thank you in advance for your replies.
