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 »
I've loved this movie for... I don't know how long. I must have seen this movie about fifty times !!
First of all it's a great story; The mystery surrounding Anastasia. Second of all, it contains such brilliant actors: Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner, Helen Hayes, Matita Hunt etc.
I've always loved Ingrid Bergman - and still do. But when I saw this movie it was another actress who captured me - Helen Hayes. She gives an absolutely outstanding performance as the old dowager empress. I was totally carried away ! And then came that scene... You who have seen this movie knows exactly what scene I'm talking about: The confrontation-scene between the old empress and Anastasia at the hotel.
I can assure everyone who hasn't yet seen this movie, that this is the best and most well-played scene in the entire movie history ! There is no doubt about it. You just have to see the movie and this scene for yourself. I guarantee that you'll agree with me. You really have to promise me; Do not miss Helen Hayes, who truly IS the empress - of this movie!
I just got one question before I go: How can it be that Helen Hayes isn't a more famous actress ??? I've never seen anything like that performance !
