In reality, Anna Anderson never met the Dowager Empress, the Czarevna Maria Feodorovna. The Empress believed that her son and his family had survived and were still in Russia. The Grand Duchess Olga, the younger daughter of Czarevna Maria Feodorovna, did meet Anna Anderson while the latter was convalescing in a sanitarium and visited her a few more times before making the determination that something was not right with the ailing woman's claims. The Grand Duchesses Olga and Xenia did not wish to upset the aged Empress and it is not known if they mentioned Anderson to her at all. The Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna remained in Denmark until her death in 1928. In 2006, her remains were transferred to St. Petersburg where she was laid to rest beside her husband, Czar Alexander III. See more »
This is a film that should be re-released. I mean at the motion picture theaters besides video and DVD. Nothing changed. Ingrid Bergman, Helen Hayes and Yul Brynner do superlative acting performances and the direction, music and the cinematography just could not be duplicated, in my opinion.
Other films have been redone with contemporary actors, some successful and some not so.
It would be very difficult to improve on this one. I have seen this film a few times over the past forty years and I appreciate it more and more.
Wish we could have more quality cinema like it!
