Nicholas and Alexandra (1971)

Directed by
Franklin J. Schaffner

Lavish Oscar-winning account of the Russian royal family's demise in the days leading up to the 1917 revolution. When Tsar Nicholas weds the German princess Alexandra, the marriage proves unpopular with the Russian people, a situation not improved when she has four daughters. When she finally bears a son, the infant's acute haemophilia can only be controlled by the powers of the fanatical monk Rasputin.
