Prev Back Next
"The King's Speech" is a 2010 Weinstein Company and UK Film Council film about
England's Prince Albert, later King George VI, and his speech therapist Lionel Logue.
 
The film starred Colin Firth as Prince Albert and Geoffrey Rush as Lionel Logue.
 
At one point in the film, Lionel bets Albert a shilling, but princes don't carry money.
The shilling would be a King George V shilling, Prince Albert's father.
 
Later when the Edward VIII - Wallace Simpson problem becomes acute,
Lionel brings up the shilling again and tells Albert that he will soon be on it.
