The would-be controversy over The King's Speech was laughable. News media organizations are getting to the point where they cook up these scandals with the expectation that they'll naturally find an audience. Perhaps it's a bigger deal in the U.K., but nobody on this side of the pond gives a crap.


I certainly agree that it's silly, but films like The Hurricane certainly suffered because of this sort of controversy.

Ah, yes, but had The Hurricane involved a country that's way over somewhere else, plus history that happened way, way long ago, it might have been a different story.

I did find it interesting, if not quite controversial, that The King's Speech reversed Churchill's role in the whole abdication affair, presumably because it wouldn't do to make Churchill look anything less than heroic, wise, etc.
