    This movie is one of the best ones I have ever seen. Hours after I left the theatre is couldn't get it off my mind. It stayed with me for days. The friendship between the two men was awesome. I believe that Jeffrey Rush and Colin Firth BOTH desevere best actor awards. The English just seem to know how to make great movies. Thank you so much for this gem. When it comes out in DVD I will buy it, so I can watch it again whenever I want. Sincerely, Marian from Minnesota

    What influence does the royal family have on films about them? Are you free to make these films whether you have their permission or not?

    How did the casting of Helen Bonham carter happen? She's brilliant in the film but I never would have thought of having her initially.

    When George VI practises his Coronation Oath, he lists the Dominions, but excludes the Union of South Africa, which was also a Dominion, and is in the Coronation Oath. Why was this done?

    The use of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony is masterful – foretelling in music what inevitably lies ahead at the same time it says in retrospect, how could the German people have fallen under Hitler's spell. How did you decide on the composer and the approach (i.e, no Elgar, Holst, or other immediately recognizable British composer. The film ranks, for me, with Chariots of Fire and A Man Called Peter (Richard Todd, 1955) as the best movies ever made. You should write a book (or video) about "The Making of "The King's Speech)!!
