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.
At the end of the movie, while the King delivers his wartime speech to the nation, a group of men in the next room are listening to it via headphones. The very dusty bakelite loudspeaker cabinet on the table was manufactured in the UK, by the broadcast relay company Rediffusion Limited, in the 1950s.
In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
