    One thought on “The King's Speech: The Shooting Script”

    1. Excellent! This is the screenplay by David Seidler, the man who originally thought of writing about King George's speech impediment. Mr. Seidler developed the concept then petitioned Buckingham Palace for permission to proceed. His answer came back from the Queen Mother (King George's wife Elizabeth)she asked that he wait until her passing before going ahead with the project. He ended up waiting twenty years! The end result is warm and inspiring.

    2. A stuttering start a quaint piece of history the unheralded speech coach who helped the new King George inspire the English nation while his fascist sympathizing brother abdicated so he could fuck off with an ugly divorcee from Baltimore.

    3. I thought the movie and script were well written and the plot was interesting. the viewers sympathized with the characters.
