Summary
This drama about an 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. 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).
