'The King's Speech': Hey, all you King George fans, here's more footage of his speeches

February 2, 2011 |  1:26 pm

Dear readers,

We had no idea you are all such Anglophiles, "King's Speech" fans or both. Our post on Monday linking to British Pathe's video of King George's speech generated tremendous traffic on the relatively small London-based company's website. British Pathe is, understandably, happy with the response and has compiled a group of audio and video footage featuring King George VI, including his meeting with President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The footage illustrates the varying degrees of his stutter, with the clip titled "The Reluctant King" seeming the most severe. Take a look at the footage here. We hope you enjoy it.
