  • Superb!

    Irene Dunne has never been one of my favorite actresses but she absolutely stuns here. I've been fortunate to have seen Yul Brynner in the role of the King both on stage and in the film but Rex Harrison is very good here too; however, nobody but nobody played the Kind as well as Brynner did. Dunne is THE Anna in this role. She has the empathy needed in the role that both the stage actresses and Deborah Kerr did not have. The sets and costuming are beautiful in this film. I do not quarrel with non-Asians being cast in this film. It was made in the 1940s and there has to be understanding about the time and the fact that Asians had killed so many Americans during that horrific war. This film is outstanding and more true to Anna Leonowens' memoirs than the other versions. Special mention of Gayle Sondegard's performance. She was usually cast as a villainess and it was good to see her in a much more sympathetic role which she acted beautifully.

    Irene Dunn was excellent, as usual. I did not think Rex Harrison was nearly as good, as the king. Nobody played this king better than Yul Brenner.

    The first film adaptation of Margaret Langdon's fictionalized account of Anna Leonowens time in Siam. Dunne & Harrison, in his Hollywood debut, are great, Sondergaard was nominated as one of Harrison's wives & mother to the upcoming Prince. The film won Academy Awards for it's superb Cinematography & Production design in a B/W film. History buffs will acknowledge the exagerrated facts & made-up scenario's in an otherwise lavish drama. I give it a 3.5/5.

  • Um classico

    Este filme um clssico com o Rex Harrison e a Irene Dunne. Particularmente eu gostei mais deste filme do que o remake dele musicalizado de 1956 com a Deborah Keer. Anna e o Rei de Sio mais complexo e profundo ao lidar com o tema dos choques entre duas culturas diferentes.

  • I Like it but...

    I like it but I believe I like the more realistic view of Anna and the King in the King and I. I did not like the fact that the cast was not casted as Asian people, the way the actual people who they are portraying were. I did like the acting. But the King and I will always be my favorite.

    Much more serious than the musical remake "The King and I", but I feel it is a superior film. Irene Dunne is excellent, as always. Great production, excellent costumes and art direction. Very nicely done. The casting of non-asians in most of the roles is a negative.

  • fantastic!!
