About this item
"Anna And The King Of Siam" (Original 1946): This charming drama about a most unconventional Asian king and the British woman he hires to run a school for his wives and many children is based on the real-life memoirs of Anna Leonowens and her experiences in Siam. Novelized by Margaret Landon, this is the story of the "exasperating" Anna (Irene Dunne) caught in the excesses of the royal court of King Mongkut of Siam (Rex Harrison). His heart is torn between tradition and the wish to be scientifically modern. Her heart is deeply affected by the exuberant king and his exotic children. "Anna And The King" (1999): Academy Award(R) Winner Jodie Foster and international action star Chow Yun-Fat bring to life the epic true story of a woman who challenged the heart of a king and inspired the destiny of a nation. English schoolteacher Anna Leonowens has traveled to Siam to educate the 58 children of King Mongkut. If she has preconceived notions about the East, the King has similar notions about the West. But amid the danger of growing political unrest, their respect for each other slowly turns into something more.
