THE KING'S SPEECH - CORGI TYPE IS WRONG




I received a few comments in response to my last post about dogs in period movies. One person in particular from The Bark magazine blog pointed out that the corgis in the King's Speech (2010) are inaccurately depicted. Just coincidentally, I have a photo in my collection of those very dogs.

Here's a picture of the Queen Mum, Elizabeth (about age 12) and her two corgis, showing what the breed should have looked like in the film about King George VI and his reluctant ascent to the throne in 1936.

Instead, they looked more like this contemporary model.
