Based on author Margaret Landon's chronicle of the adventures of 19th-century British schoolteacher Anna Leonowens, this romantic drama tells the story of Anna's influence on the life of the majestic and arrogant King of Siam.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Before it became a popular musical with Yul Brynner, Margaret Landon's book about the British Governess was a skillful, well acted melodrama by Rex Harrison (in his Hollywood debut) and Irene Dunne."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Predating "The King and I," and just as entertaining, minus the music."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Rex Harrison is sexy, Irene Dunne is prim, but the racism is evident."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
