The King’s Speech ‘More Than Entertainment to People Who Stutter’

Hollywoodnews.com: Jane Fraser, president of The Stuttering Foundation (www.stutteringhelp.org), issued the following reaction to tonight’s “Golden Globe Awards”:

“A tsunami called The King’s Speech has turned our world upside down,” said Jane Fraser, president of The Stuttering Foundation. “This movie has done in one fell swoop what we’ve been working on for 64 years – raising awareness of the complexities of stuttering and the help that is available to those in need. The King’s Speech, with its seven Golden Globe nominations and tonight’s much-deserved “Best Actor in a Motion Picture” award for Colin Firth, is more than entertainment to people who stutter.

We have heard universal praise for both the movie and the actors’ performances from the stuttering community across the world. People who stutter have a movie and a hero they can call their own. We congratulate the director, producers, writers and actors for their work, and their humanity in helping millions of people who stutter with understanding and hope.”

About the Foundation: Malcolm Fraser felt the same dread of speaking in public that King George VI experienced in the 1940s. Inspired by the plight of “Bertie”, Fraser, a successful businessman and stutterer, went on to establish and endow the 64-year-old nonprofit Foundation in 1947. The Foundation provides a toll-free helpline, 800-992-9392, and free online resources on its Web site, www.stutteringhelp.org, including services, referrals and support to people who stutter and their families, as well as support for research into the causes of stuttering.
