Hi Mie,

In my earlier post I said that in Russian Anastasia's name is pronounced as Ana-Star-C-R. I know as there have been a few docos in Britain as well as seeing a Russian Funeral Procession for NAOTMAA the priest called Ana-Star-C-R. When he was reading out the names.

As for the royal dresses there is a website which has the pics of the Formal "Yellow" dress.  I had posted it on the Imperial Family site.  The author of the website went to a museum in St Petersburg and they had one of OTMA's formal dresses.  It was originally white with soft gold through it is also had gold beading.  The hat was also white as well as time has gone buy as most clothing does the material has yellowed with age.  I am sorry that I can't recall the website as I haven't seen it for ages but it was about imperial fashion through the ages of Russia.

I hope this helps you.  As for the title of that topic I can't recall it but it was something along the lines "Grand Duchesses dress"

I would like to ad that Tom Baker aka Rasputin, is still alive and well.  He is a bit over weight, having seen him on the behind the scenes of British comedy Little Britain.
He did the narrative and voice overs of the tv series and also on the radio series.

I have to say I got in to the IF way before Anastasia came out.  I guess a year before the movie came out.   I got into the IF from reading a book called Great Crimes of the 20th Century. This book was also a tv series.

I feel in love with the pic of the four girls sitting/standing around the table in their formal wear.

So I was sadden to read that all four wear murdered so started to study more about them and feel in love with the family.

I have to say also that I did enjoy the movie although it was quite fictious.  Beautiful animation and great score.  

I hated the way that Americans pronounce Anastasia's name  >:(.   I much prefer the Russian pronouciation. It sounds more exotic then the way the American's pronouce it as ASIA not Anastar C.E.R.

Other then the stupid fiction bits I quite enjoyed it.  I also love the song Rasputin sings about Anastasia its my favourite.

I didn't know they had sang today's version inside of the old tsarist version.

But it was a good movie gave my boyfriend and I something to talk about.  

Reading back on my comment Maria did have big bit in the movie.  Although there was equal time for Olga and Tatiana.  At least those girls had speaking lines.

In response to Rasputin (Alan Rickman) I do say that yes Maria is a big part of the movie how ever there is a scene showing Rasputin walking and talking to Olga and Tatiana (although I have to say there is no likeness by either actress of Olga and Tatiana) in the grounds when it is snowing.  In the dining room scene Alexandra says "Pass the potatos please Tatiana."  Tatiana replies "Yes mum".  You see close ups of Anastasia and at times Maria in this scene.  
Also when they are introducing Alexei to high society The camera lingers on Olga and Tatiana for a while.  Altough I was abit confused by who was who as Anastasia didn't seem to have a fringe at the time.    
When the tricentary at the church is shown,  The camera shows the four girls with Alexei and his nose is bleeding Maria takes him away.  
And when Alexei reliease that they are going to die soon he tells OTMA "We are all going to die."  The girls are in shock but you see Maria true to form crying hysterically about it.  
The scene where they are being executed they are all fall on to each other.  Maria is the last to fall to he ground. I know this as I watched it with my boyfriend last week  ;)

Hi Everyone.  :D

I was watching the video of Rasputin (Alan Rickman, Ian Mckellen etc) one scene had Alexei mention all the countries that were under Tsarist rule and Nicholas was also a Grand Duke of one country.  Although I heard them.  I can't quite remember which country is which.  I was wondering was Bulgaria part of the Russian Empire?

Thanks if someone can tell us the list of the countries.

How can you be sure that Maria took the pic? Where did you get it from?

I have to say that unidentified person is Maria. Because I think around the time the pic was taken, Maria had her tonsils out?

Oh Poor V Aleskey, you should of bought in Nicholas and Alexandra to watch.  Then you could of pointed out who Anastasia was.   Or you could of borrowed Rasputin (1996).   Then that way you could prove that Ana was real.  That's the trouble with cartoons many people think it they fictional characters another example of people thinking they are fictional is Pochahontas.

I was cleaning my room when I came across an old project I did in the seventh grade (year seven) English class.  The assignment was to create a family and then talk to the class about your "family." This was when I had started to get into the IF.  
I used the 1913 formal photo of the IF and I said I was Alex (Alexei) and I lived with my mother and father and four sisters.   This photo was taken in at my aunt Eva's wedding two years ago. My sisters were bridesmaids and I got to be a page boy.   I wore a sailor suite because aunt's husband Juan is a sailor in the navy.   My dad is in a military suite cause he is in the Army.  
Then I went on to talk about OTMA but I changed their names to Olivia, Tanya, Mary and Anna.   Olga was at university studying to be a High School teacher.  Tanya was a model and was with a Sydney agency, Maria was still at High school and so was Anna.
I also used a casual photo of Eva Duarte' and Juan Peron (The first lady and president of Argentina.)  Saying how we sometimes go on boats and do activites together and we sometimes go to Ten Pin bowling.
I got 9/10 for my project.  I thought I share it with other people and ask if anyone else has done a project when they were at school?  

Thanks Anna, over thirty years and he has changed.  I most recently saw him on the DVD of Little Britian and he has put on a lot of weight.  But I couldn't tell if it was him or not when he was in Nicholas and Alexandra. His eyes look different I guess it was from that beard.
