Directed by
Anatole Litvak
Marvin J. Chomsky

Historical drama directed by Anatole Litvak. In an Oscar-winning role, Ingrid Bergman stars as the amnesiac refugee Anna Koreff who, in 1920s Paris, meets Russian exile General Bounine. Bounine is amazed by her striking resemblance to Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna, who everyone presumed murdered, along with her father Tsar Nicholas II and the rest of her immediate family, during the Russian Revolution. Furthermore, Bounine realises that - if he can successfully pass her off as the Grand Duchess - she could be his key to getting his hands on a massive fortune that was left by the Tsar in an English bank vault. However, he will first have to convince Anastasia's grandmother, the formidable Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna, that his charge is indeed the long-missing Tsarina.
