June 1946: Anna and the King of Siam


I don’t know… Irene Dunne is fun, of course. Rex Harrison as the king of Siam is… as you’d expect?

But there’s something kinda loathsome about this film. It gets generally positive reviews, but it’s… horrifying and dreary.

I really struggled to get through the last five hours of this horrid thing.
