This visual and musical masterpiece features YUL BRYNNERs Academy Award winning performance, an unforgettable Rodgers and Hammerstein score, and brilliant choreography by Jerome Robbin. It tells the true story of an Englishwoman, Anna Leonowens (DEBORAH KERR), who comes to Siam as schoolteacher to the royal court in the 1860s. Though she soon finds herself at odds with the stubbon monarch (BRYNNER), over time, Anna and the King stop trying to change each other and begin to understand one another. Winner of six Academy Awards, The King and I contains some of the most lavish sets in Hollywood history and some of the world's best-loved songs, including "Getting To Know You", "I Whistle A Happy Tune", "Hello, Young Lovers" and "Shall We Dance?"
