First take on this story, and definitely not the best. Primarily because of course, the King of Siam is played, yes, by Rex Harrison. and that's a big stumbling point. Even he can't pull such a task off without looking ridiculous. Aside from that, the story itself, while just a tad bit longwinded, is fine. It actually adds some elements that I wasn't aware of, not mentioned in any of the other movies, and therefore begs of more research. Irene Dunne plays a fine Anna actually, but the Non-Asians playing Asians (there's plenty more) definitely takes this down a notch.
