Critic Reviews for Anna and the King of Siam
Before it became a popular musical with Yul Brynner, Margaret Landon's book about the British Governess was a skillful, well acted melodrama by Rex Harrison (in his Hollywood debut) and Irene Dunne.
Predating "The King and I," and just as entertaining, minus the music.
Rex Harrison is sexy, Irene Dunne is prim, but the racism is evident.
