Meet The King 1931.

When Mahatma Gandhi finally met King George V., the King told him he had been a "good man" when he had met him on his visit to South Africa and up to 1918, but then something had gone wrong with him. To this patronizing remark, Gandhi replied with silence. The King, referring to the ill-starred visit of the Prince of Wales to India in 1921, continued: "Why did you boycott my son?" Gandhi retorted: "Not your son, Your Majesty, but the official representative of the British Crown." Referring to the civil disobedience movement, the King said rebellion could not be tolerated, to which Gandhi answered politely but firmly: "Your Majesty won't expect me to argue the point."
