Maybe if we are to donate we should give materials and raise the workforce ourselves. I would,nt mind working on such a project.

Yes but films are films and you have to try to educate a public in one and a half hours. I think it got the message across if it did,nt maybe a lot of us would not be on this wonderful forum. It was great for the time.

Its got to be our Michael Jayston he plays it great plus they seem to have the regallia and uniforms quite well matched to the period. But I think theres always room for improvement.

Just got this on DVD region 2 the first was region1 post VHS.  I think this is the film that got most of Us 70s groovers in on this wonderful subject so to speak. Also just got Ekateringberg by Linda I,m going to read it on hols in Sunny Cyprus

I recommend the father Serfes film very good for a post comm film. It all takes place at the proper locations. The music score is superb I was very lucky to get it. A true gent if I may say so my self God Bless Him.

Thanks for the info regards Stu

Also this refers to the award:

With reference to this prestigious award, the proud Tsar wrote in his diary that evening:
“Saturday (GHQ-Mogilyov): Got up rather late. Read through papers until 11 a.m. and went to reports with Alexei. Upon the petition of Gen. Adj. Ivanov, I awarded Alexei the Medal of St. George – 4th class in remembrance of his visiting the armies of the SW front, which were close to enemy positions. It was good to see his joy. After lunch I received with Alexei one of the English officers and then Gen. von Ropp. We went off around 3 pm. Along Gomelskii Highway to the second station and then took a walk around the sites, which reminded me of the shkerries [in Finland]. At 6.15 we went to vespers. After dinner I received Polianov for a long while. At. 10:30 we took a ride in the train with Alix and the daughters. Had tea and returned with Voeikov and Sabin (on duty) at 11:30.”

Yes Alexi did get the Medal of st George 4th Class It was given to him by his Father the Tsar:

On October 17, 1915, Nicholas received the following telegram: “Telegram to the Name of His Imperial Majesty from the Commanderin- Chief of the Armies of the Southwest Front:
“I most humbly petition an award decoration for His Imperial Highness, the Heir and Grand Duke Alexei Nikolaievich, of a silver medal of the 4th degree on a St. George ribbon in memory of the visit by His Imperial Highness, on the evening of the 12th of October, to the wounded in the neighborhood of the Klevan Station in a zone of distant enemy artillery fire, and also for his presence on the 13th of October in the encampment area of the Corps Reserves of the 9th and 11th Armies. Apropos of this I most humbly dare to report to Your Imperial Majesty that, by such an award decoration, you will deign again to make the armies of the southwest front happy, in whose hearts these joyful feelings of utmost devotion to their supreme leader and readiness to lay down their lives for Tsar and country have been eternally imprinted, and which sentiments they experienced during your visiting the armies [Signed] General-Adjudant Ivanov.” 1

Dimitri is the one in uniform and stands behind the prince. Felix is the one who says untill it comes(meaning the Revolution)  lets have some fun. Cracking stuff.

My favorite scene from the film N&A is when Micheal Redgrave who plays Sazonov is in Rasputins apartment in St Petersburg. Accusing him of ruining Russia. When in walks prince Yussopov and Grand Duke Dimitri after a short exchange of words Sazonov tells Prince Yossopov to "take your girls ( Casts a sly unbeliving look at the prince Yussopov) and adds or your Boys and frolic in the provences". That one always gets me considering the film was made in 1971. Great entertainment

Russian Imperial Medals, Orders, Uniforms & Militaria / Re: Tsars Medals

Hello Danial
The Medals are finished Ive done them all they look great. The Kolodka I made is slightly larger and done in the British court style. Again slightly than N 11 because I used the standard 25mm as the ribbon size dictates. If you look at the Tsars it is a lot Narrower but longer. I hope to post them on this site soon. Just one question its about Alexys medals was his medal of st george for bravery or was it a 4 cl I am not to sure about the difference?

I,m originally from the Rhondda Valley South Wales But I live now in Lincolnshire England. Nice to see a Taff Living in Southern Calif small world

One possible reason is that Nicholas by the reading the series of notes signed an officer. The Tsars reaction and response to these letters and also in N diary entries which of course Yurovsky was reading every night. In this sense N played into the hands of his captors. The Ural Soviet had planned this all along. The murder of the imperial was a well planned and rehersed act. In this sense Nicholas unknowningly condemed them all.
