A lost film, check those attics
25 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

One of many missing and presumed lost films from the lovely Corinne Griffith. "Into Her Kingdom" was also part of the then-stylish wave of Russia-themed pictures. Griffith is assisted by the handsome Einar Hanson, who would die tragically in a automobile accident.

The film purports to tell the story of the real-life Grand Duchess Tatiana, daughter of Czar Nicholas II. Tatiana was executed along with her parents and siblings but that fact was not popularly known when "Into Her Kingdom" was made. However, it does give the story a rather ghoulish quality and making a film about a young woman whose fate was unknown shows a distinct lack of good taste. While Tatiana has not endured nearly the nonsense that became attached to her younger sister, Anastasia, it is still a pity that the movie makers chose to go this route.

Note: This film is considered missing and presumed lost and any reviews claiming to have viewed it should be looked upon with a wary eye unless the whens, wheres and hows of the screening are shared.
