A ferret or a cow?

We've just been to see The King's Speech. It's a very good film, jam-packed with excellent performances and fabulous cinematography, although it was so hyped that I guess I was always likely to find it just slightly disappointing. Also, if you've seen A Month In the Country, you'll have seen Colin Firth doing something quite similar before...

I've spent the day working on a story board for the Metro Musical, which means for every potential shot, I draw a little picture to show the position of the camera, and where the cast need to stand. My drawings, however, are absolutely dreadful! I showed  them to Nathan and he mistook a train track for an escalator and ferret for a cow! Perhaps some of you will wonder why there's a ferret in our film. Obviously, you'll have to watch it to find out! That's, of course, if the cameraman doesn't film a cow by mistake!
February 10th, 1661, and Pepys took physic all day. He rather guiltily confessed to spending his time reading low grade French romances. They must have stirred something in him, however, because he occupied his evening with Elizabeth, fantasising about the idea of visiting France.

  1. You neglected to mention one of the most striking characteristics of "The King's Speech" - a literate script. We don't often have that pleasure.
