Where was that $7000 I had just a minute ago?

Well, even if it's very expensive, at least we get to see pictures up close of the uniform like Tatiana wore for free  ;D

Since the Songs thread is long gone, I'm posting this here. Has anyone ever seen White Christmas, with Rosemary Clooney? The song "Sisters" fits Olga and Tatiana to a T.  ;D

It's a family tradition in my house. Watch it every year!
I think you might be right about that! Wow!

This could probably be answered with one post, so I'm putting it here. Why didn't Maria have any jewels on her when the IF was murdered?

I could be wrong here, but I think it was because they only hid the jewels after N&A and Maria left. So she wasn't there. At least, that's what I've read in FOTR. Apparently there was a letter from Alexandra telling OTA to conceal the remaining jewels.

  I've often wondered about that "chair" reference myself! My thought was that it referred to a girl's having her hair elaborately combed by some other female while seated on a chair. In other words, a nice hair-styling and combing "sitting." or session. I think I'm right , but it's definitely only a guess.

I have one question, and something else I just want to throw out there. Why didn't Tatiana have a 16th coming out party like Olga did? She turned 16 in 1913, which was before the war.

And something else, has anyone ever seen the Producers, the original or musical? I just love where Roger walks in the room with a dress on, and says he's supposed to be "the Grand Duchess Anastasia." I always laugh.

Good question....Well, I think that Tatiana didn't have a "coming out" ball like Olga's because of the hubub for the Tecentenary. Balls here, parties there, etc. Then when 1914 rolled around, well, we all know what happened then...

Just kidding, I know full well what else happened that dark year.   :(

Whoo! Go Boston!   ;D

Can anyone tell me if the IF's pet's collars were actually Faberge?

I've seen both movies!  Haha, I don't remember if he said it on the first one but on the second movie he's saying he looks more like the Chrysler building!
