Siam, 1862. British schoolteacher and recent widow Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr) is sent to Siam as a teacher for the royal children but immediately clashes with their father, King Mongkut (Yul Brynner). Her modern, Western ways don’t sit well with the ruler – but over time, he slowly gains respect for her willingness to stand up to him.

The film version  by Twentieth Century Fox was the winner of five Academy Awards® (Best Actor, Best Musical Score, Best Costume Design, Best Art Direction & Set Decoration and Best Sound) and was nominated for four more (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Cinematography).
