Overview

This release constitutes the first volume in a set of classic features commemorating the 75th anniversary of 20th Century Fox studios. This particular installment begins with Anna and the King of Siam (1946), a non-musical precursor to The King and I (based on the novel by Margaret Landon, and directed by John Cromwell) about Anna Leonowens (Irene Dunne), the British society woman who traveled to Siam in 1862 to educate the children of the Siamese monarch (Rex Harrison). The remainder of the collection focuses exclusively on musicals: Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine headline the 1960 Can-Can, which brings Cole Porter's blockbuster stage musical of the same name to the screen; Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron star in director Jean Negulesco's Daddy Long Legs (1955), with Astaire as the benefactor of French orphan girl Caron; and finally, Julie Andrews headlines Robert Wise's epic-length 1968 biopic Star!, as Broadway icon and chanteuse Gertrude Lawrence.
