The King's Speech
· Elizabeth goes to see Lionel Logue for the first time. She’s wearing a hat that has a small veil that falls over her face. It’s down during the time they’re talking but when Elizabeth mentions “something of that nature”, the veil is up. It’s back down again after that.
· King George V is dead in his bed. In the close-up view of his face, his mouth is open. But in the next side view of him, it’s closed.
· George VI and Logue are talking in Westminster Abbey, rehearsing what will happen during his coronation. The knobs on the top of either side of the chair have little decorations on them. When George VI confronts Logue, the decorations are turned to the side. But after George VI talks to the archbishop and he sits back down, the decorations on both knobs are in the middle and facing forward.
· King George VI’s speech is supposed to be given at 6:00pm sharp. But, during his speech, when he says “such a principle”, a clock shows that it’s actually closer to 7:15.
· After King George VI delivers his speech, he puts his jacket on. The collar on the back is flat but when Logue mentions what he stammered on, King George’s jacket collar is lifted up. It’s back down again after that.
