The King and I

The King and I

Siam, 1862. British schoolteacher and recent widow, Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr) is sent to Siam as a teacher for the royal children. But she 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. And eventually that respect deepens into love.
