I do know that Stephen Kerensky once posted here.  Son or grandson, I don't remember now.

Also Richard Schweitzer, the husband of Gleb Botkins's daughter Marina, also posted here.

I believe that Petr, who is a poster, has direct ancestors who fought in the Tsar's army.  They were nobility.

I am sure there are more, but we need to start another thread if this topic is going to "take off".

Has this movie been released on DVD?  In case anyone is curious about it.

'Alexandra is in this movie too, although she is referred to throughout as "Tsarina", never once is her name said.'

Nothing strange in this. After all, in Britain today we mostly talk about 'the Queen', not Elizabeth, and 'the Duke of Edinburgh'. The Duke is called Prince Philip from time to time, but more usually Duke of Edinburgh (wags like to call him 'Phil the Greek!)

I will look out for the Hammer film. It sounds fun!

It is a hoot to see, Ann.  Just don't expect historical accuracy.

Exactly.

The 1930s film starring Marlene Dietrich as Catherine the Great is a real hoot, worth watching for the portrayal of Peter III!

Oh Dietrich was great in that and the production values were enjoyable too. In  " The Mad Monk " The great Christopher Lee  proves yet again, as he did though out his career , he could make anything watchable! lol ! It's a low production free for all...not even worthy of the term "camp" ..but that shouldn't stop one from enjoying it when in a certain mood  lol!

Yeah, it's fun watching his over the top performance as Rasputin.
