Tbe 20th Century-Fox filmization . of Margaret London's sensational best-seller starring Irene Dunne, Rex Harrison and Linda Darnell, achieves peaks of splendor, drama and romantic excitement seldom equalled .on the screen, "Anna and the King of Siam" unfolds the adventures of an Englishwoman who was called by the fabulous King 1 Monghut to strange and exotic Siam in the ISGO'e to serve as a teacher to his hundreds of harem wives and their children. The shocking, almost medieval barbarism that ran parallel to the ago-old culture and beauty of the land, -and the imperiously harsh .yet . moody and temperamental King Mongkut himself could not help 1 but have a profound impact .on.,the frail and sensitive Anna. How, with the wonder of her Eastern beauty and the flame of her courage, Bhe braved this strange world and won.a triumph more exciting than any woman would dare 'dream, makes for a thrlllinjj and unforgettable motion picture.
