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.
The piece of music heard during the film's finale broadcast of King George VI's 1939 radio speech is the second movement Allegretto of Ludwig van Beethoven's 7th Symphony. It is often used in films to score a scene of carnage and sadness.
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.
The altar frontal at Westminster Abbey is purple. King George VI's coronation occurred May 12th, 1937, too late for Lent. Also, the Abbey has no purple altar frontals for the High Altar.
In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
