The hidden letters behind "The King's Speech"

Dig into the treasure trove of historic letters between a stuttering king and his commoner friend, speech therapist Lionel Logue

"Get me re-write!" It was a chance discovery that caused panic on the set of "The King's Speech." The movie, about a stuttering King George VI and his Australian born speech therapist Lionel Logue, was about to begin filming when Logue's grandson Mark happened upon a treasure trove of actual letters between the two men.
