Yusupov videos/documentaries

Тайные знаки. Серебряный кубок
Secret sign. The silver cup.

This is a documentry I stumbled upon the other night. It's about the curse which has haunted the Yusupov family for several generations. I was hoping someone may be able to translate it for me or at least break down any new/valuable information. It has some great photos.

You know I've not found the documentary too much exciting. The tenuous plot of it is twisting around a strange goblet which brought ill-luck to the Yusupov family, as if the goblet was a reason of the ill-fate of all Yusupov offsprings...I even had no patience to watch the documentary till the end.

Our Russian TV-channel TV-3 (which produced the doc.) is famous for its "mystical" orientation and such "thrillers".

That's odd, I mean about the goblet being the cause for the Yusupov curse. Very strange but I guess they were seeking to add more thrill to the tale?...Still thank you for helping me understand more as to what it was about.

Felix and Irina Interview in J'ai tué Raspoutine / I Killed Rasputin  1967 film. In French but there's Russian translation over most of the view.

Yes, it's my little channel. :)

I just started with videos so it is still very amateurish. I'm very glad to hear Douglas and others have enjoyed the videos on there.

Thanks to Maravilha from Foro Dinastias , the beginning of "I killed Rasputin' without the Russian voice over so you are able to hear Irina & Felix's voices clearly

Video on the Yusupovs, or the Yusupov women I should say.

http://history-life.ru/post115654903

It's in Russian so hopefully someone can give me a summary of what they are talking about. Thanks in advance.

oh thank you for the video, ashanti! it's obvious that it was made with admiration. but, i think, there is nothing new for you there. it is said about excellent beauty of all women of the family, generosity and brilliant manners of Zenaide-jr and amorouosness of Zenaide, her grandmother.

I noticed that in the "I Killed Rasputin" interview with Irina that he's wearing shades... did Felix go blind near the end of his life? just wondering is all...
