Had they lived an average lifespan, OTMA could have conceivably been alive in the year this movie was released (1971). Interesting thought,

That's true.  In 1971 they could have still been alive.

Olga:  76
Tatiana:  74
Maria:  72
Anastasia:  70

And Alexei, assuming he survived, would have been 67.

Hi,
Anyone notice any major historical mistakes in Nicholas and Alexandra? Aside from the Stolypin/ tercentenary scene?
Thanks,
Alexandra

Given that N&A the film was a highly modified version of N&A the book, and since N&A the book has numerous historical errors I think it's safe to say that the movie does as well.

I didn't notice that many errors in the book- which ones are you referring to?

Might be a little difficult for me to cite examples off the top. Although Massie's general portrayal of certain individuals was exaggerated (quite understandable given his lack of access to information in the late-60s). You should take a look at some of James Pratt's errata on that book and others.

I suspect that, if OTMAA were still alive in 1971, there would not have been a "Nicholas & Alexandra" published as we know it.   :)

He's a member of this forum. Here is a link to the threat he created pointing out some errors and inconsistencies in the 'Final Chapter' and other books...you might want to direct any specific questions to him.

Yeah, they should have cast a younger actor to play Yurovsky.

Exactly. That is one of the things about the movie that really bothered me.

TCM showed both Nicholas and Alexandra and Rasputin and the Empress (1932) Wednesday evening/Thursday morning for the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution so I finally got to see both all through.
