Trivia

While talking about William Shakespeare, one of Logue's sons mentions 'the Scottish play'. That play is 'Macbeth'; according to a widely-held superstition, the play is cursed, and saying its title aloud brings bad luck.


Quotes

Title Card: 1925 / King George V reigns over a quarter of the world's people. He asks his second son, the Duke of York, to give the closing speech at the Empire Exhibition in Wembley, London.


Goofs

Stanley Baldwin is depicted as resigning as Prime Minister on a point of principle, because he has misjudged Adolf Hitler. In fact Baldwin retired from the Premiership of his own free will, the day after King George VI's Coronation in 1937. Hitler had not yet even begun his campaigns of invasion and treaty-breaking at that time.


Crazy Credits

In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
