Film footage of Marie Feodorovna?
« on: November 25, 2006, 10:23:21 PM »
Is there any archival film footage of Marie Feodorovna out there? I've seen plenty of clips of NAOTMAA, but I don't recall seeing any of MF. Seems odd, seeing how fond her family was of photography...

Their is some archival film footage of Maria Feodorovna, I saw it in the wonderful series A Royal Family from Marcus Mandal and Anna Lerche.
In the preview I send below of the programme, you can see her walking with her brother the King of Denmark behind her elder sister Alexandra with her father the Christian IX and sister Thyra.   
After that fragment  the family stands on the stairs in Glucksbourg I think, Dagmar is standing next to Alix and her father. Laughing and smiling because of the other family members behaving like clowns, even Alexandra Feodorovna (next to Dagmar) is smiling.
Wait until the downloading is finished than a screen appears and you can start waiting , enjoy!!!

There is a little bit of film footage of MF at the beginning of disc 7 of the DVD series, Russian Empire. It was taken during the unveiling of a monument to Aleksander III in 1909. Nicholas, Alexandra, and Marie Fyodorovna are shown at the base of the monument. Unfortunately, that segment doesn't appear in the preview provided on their website, and I don't know how to make a clip from my copy.

  Sarushka,
  You are (or were, or may be) in luck! The program Royal Netherlands mentions , ARoyal Family, appeared on PBS television at 9pm  EST (Northeast US Tues.    I found it by accident and it was excellent. It is as RN describes it. That was the first of I believe seven episodes. The fourth deals with the Marriage Of Marie Feodorovna To Alexander III. and will probably have film of them, certainly photos and commentary. I don't know where you live but my PBS station frequently rebroadcasts prime episodes. I  hope you have access to PBS and that you look for A Royal Family . You should be able to see MF -AlexanderIII one eventually. Unfortunately, I found this topic too late to alert you.
  Royal Netherlands: Good link!

Thanks! There are two PBS stations in my area and I only have access to one of them, but I will pay close attention to the listings and keep my fingers crossed.

In "Russia: Land of the Tsars" there are scenes shown on film of the coronation of Nicholas & Alexandra & there's a scene when Minnie's carriage is driven past the camera & you can just make her out bowing to the people from inside the coach.

Oh! I've seen that footage, but I was never certain if it was Alix or MF.   :D

If the couch had a (big) crown on top of the roof, then it was MF because she was already a crowned Empress and if there is no crown on the roof it is Alix, because she is still an Uncrowned Empress. So you can regonisze if it was MF or Alix on the footage.

Does anybody have any idea how I can get hold of the DVD that the clip above is taken from.  I have looked at the Nordisk Film website and the Royal Family website itself but can't see anything that might help.  Thanks

I believe there is some footage of Marie with her sister Queen Alexandra and nephew George V and Queen Mary outside St.Margaret's Church, Westminster in London on the day of the wedding of Lord Louis Mountbatten to Edwina Ashley.

Groovy! I'll remember that the next time I watch the documentary.
