The Story of Anna and the King Summary
Highly-illustrated companion to the lavish and epic 20th Century Fox motion picture based on the beloved story ANNA AND THE KING. Starring Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster and international superstar Chow Yun-Fat. Set in nineteenth-century Siam, the film chronicles the true life adventures of British governess Anna Leonowens, who is hired by the King to educate his sixty-eight children. This is the lavish, richly illustrated, full colour behind-the-scenes guide to Anna and the King, 20th Century Fox's major Christmas film release, starring Jodie Foster as the young and beautiful English teacher who travelled to Siam to serve as governess to the King's children. Anna spent over five years in Siam and when she left, she published her memoirs which immediately caught the interest of the public and were subsequently the basis for several movies and a beloved Broadway musical. But there was an untold side to the story, a private relationship that blossomed between herself and the King -- impossible for nineteenth-century readers to accept -- a love only hinted at in Anna's memoirs, until now. UK RELEASE DATE OF FILM: 17TH DECEMBER 1999
