Anna and the King of Siam
Based on the true story of an English governess who takes a position teaching the King of Siam's children, John Cromwell's lavish production stars Rex Harrison in his screen debut. Recently widowed Anna (Irene Dunne) leaves England for the palace of King Mongkut (Harrison). She clashes with the king despite his instruction to teach the children Western ways, but the two slowly gain a respect for each other that transcends cultural differences.
