      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 4/5 May 29, 2005 Full Review Fannie Hurst Modern Screen Not one moment of Anna and the King of Siam, is banal. Rather, it is exciting, honest and memorable theater. Jun 15, 2023 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com 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. Rated: B+ Jul 3, 2005 Full Review Steve Crum Kansas City Kansan Predating "The King and I," and just as entertaining, minus the music.
