Transcript of The King's Speech

The King's Speech

Summary
The King's Speech is the story of King George VI and how he overcame his severe stammer that he had since the age of 4. The King attends regular speech therapy sessions with Lionel Logue, Australian therapist. They soon become good friends. The movie stars Colin Firth as King George VI, Helena Bonham Carter as Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (his wife), and Geoffrey Rush as Lionel Logue.
Clip Number 2
This scene is depicting some of the exercises the King had to do to try to cease his stammer.


Historical Accuracy
As far as movies go, this movie is one of the most historically accurate. However, there were a few mistakes. The one I'm going to focus on is how accurately the King's stammer was portrayed.
Clip Number 3
This is one of the last scenes of the movie, when the King gives his wartime speech. This is the climax of the movie, and it shows that all of his hard work paid off.
Stammer
In the movie, the King can not get through a single sentence without stammering at least once or twice. In real life, however, the king's stammer was not as bad as the movie makes it out to be. Although the King did struggle with his stammer, he only stammered every couple of sentences. It also wasn't considered to be a huge problem to the English people as depicted in the movie.

In those clips, we see the challenge that King George VI had to overcome. In this movie, the is depicted as a heroic role model, even though in real life he was considered to be dim-witted, and bumbling.


Clip Number One
This is the opening scene of the movie, where we see how bad the King's stammer is.
