Winner of 5 ACADEMY AWARDS®, Rodgers & Hammerstein's® regal classic tells the true story of Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr), an English widow who travels to Siam in 1862 to serve as governess to the King's (Yul Brynner) children. She soon finds herself at odds with the stubborn monarch, but after "getting to know" each other, Anna and the King ultimately develop an extraordinary friendship that surprises them both.
