Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Anna and the King of Siam.

Pocahontas is the tale of another woman whose legend has over shadowed her reality. It is interesting to contrast the various film versions of Mrs. Leonowen’s experiences in Siam. In the King and I (1956), actress Deborah Kerr puts a romantic spin on her relationship with the monarch, played by Yul Brynner, when she asks, “Shall We Dance?” The more-serious remake of Anna and the King in 1999 allows Yun-Fat Chow to present a more intelligent and political savvy ruler, while Jodi Foster lets her character fall prey to her imperfect pride.
