I Didn't know K-K-King George VI Stammered

My wife and I saw The King's Speech yesterday, which was a terrific film on all accounts. I can't say enough good things about it. The writing was excellent. The performances were outstanding. The direction was meaningful and each shot was photgraphically beautiful.

I'll be the first to admit that English History is not my strong suit, something my wife deplores in me (She majored in history and enjoys lecturing me on various historical events), so it was news to me to hear that the King George VI had a stammered and that the man that aided him in his speech did not have an MA after his name nor a Ph.D.

For anyone who has not seen the film, my apologies for ruining any unforseen plot twists. Hope you enjoy the film.
