R | | Biography, Drama
The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.
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.
In a brief scene at the end of the film, a small group of factory workers are listening to the speech on the radio. The speech was broadcast at 6pm on a Sunday, when factories would be likely be closed. If the factory was operating, workers would be unlikely to stop for a short radio broadcast. If they did stop, a much bigger crowd of people would be gathered around the radio.
In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
