The King's (Real) Speech

More of a pop culture blog today...but who cares. 

If you have yet to see The Kings Speech stop what you are doing and go see it immediately. Last night it won best ensemble at the SAG awards and its a leading contender for the Oscar this February. 

The story is simple. Its about King George VI his struggle with public speaking and what he does to over come it. Its a fantastic movie with two of the most fantastic actors of our time. Colin Firth and Jeffrey Rush. Just stellar.

Well....below you will find the video of some very rare footage. Its the real video of King George VI during one of his speeches in Scotland. You can clearly see him struggle with his speech. Just fascinating to watch after you know the entire story!
