George VI

King George VI (Colin Firth) speaks uncertainly into the microphone at a racetrack while his wife (Helena Bonham Carter) and the crowd look on, in the 2010 film 'The King's Speech.' The film was based on the stuttering problems of the real-life 20th-century king. Colin Firth was nominated for an Academy Award for the role. Photo: The Weinstein Company.
