TMC_King_and I Yul Brynner Deborah Kerr photoSiam, 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.
