Watch Anna and the King of Siam
- 2 hr 8 min
"Anna and the King of Siam" (1946) is a drama based on the novel of the same name. That novel, in turn, had been loosely based on the diaries of Anna Leonowens, who served as a governess to the King of Siam's children in the 1860's. The culture clash between the Victorian Leonwens and the autocratic King form a good chunk of the plot. "Anna and the King of Siam" inspired the musical "The King and I."
