From their state-visit to Canada and the US just before WWII in 1939: King George VI and Queen Elizabeth with the 'Roosevelts'.

I agree with you 100%, Eddie. Her look was PERFECTION in the 1950s and 60s.

YES! Like this one.....perfect shoes, dress & wrap (Female members take note!!!;))



Elegant & feminine - sadly lacking in many women today (Just my opinion)!

Eddie,I don't wear anything like that in this era because sadly, I'd get laughed at BUT how I wish I was back in that day (and QM), the fashion was beautiful.

hehe, no that's true Lindelle, but to hell what others think (I never do!!)!! ;) & I'm sure you dress beautifully, I was more referring to those in the spot light (the york Princesses & Princess Anne (though she is not too bad) for example! Yes I agree the clothes where beautiful. However my sister wears some beautiful 1960s style shift dresses, ala Jackie Kennedy, & splayed dresses (with a vintage 1960s hand bag - which are wonderful quality, particularly the clasps) and she gets stopped regularly to ask where she got them and she makes them herself!!

From an article regarding the Toronto International Film Festival which just finished:

"At the top of the heap is The King’s Speech, winning the Cadillac People’s Choice Award as voted by filmgoers at the 2010  (and 35th) edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, which drew to a close Sunday after a whirlwind 10 days.

Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter and based on a true story, director Tom Hooper’s film chronicles the ascension of King George VI. After his brother abdicates, George (a.k.a. Bertie and father to the reigning Queen Elizabeth II) reluctantly assumes the throne.

Plagued by a dreaded nervous stammer and considered unfit to be King, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist to help him overcome."

Sounds like audiences really enjoyed the film. I definitely want to see it!

Hm, does the film claim that George VI only went to Lionel Logue after his accession? I was under the impression that it was actually during the 1920s.

I cannot remember where I read this but I do believe that Queen Mary does appear in the film, albeit in a very small role. I do not recall the name of the actress who portrays her.

I'm sure i've seen a mini series here in the UK on the same subject, but for the life of me I can't remember the details. I expect it was made and broadcast by the BBC though.

I think "Bertie & Elizabeth". That actress was even slimmer than Helena Bonham Carter. Colin Firth looks good !
