Description
The year after the all-star Grand Hotel, brothers John and Lionel Barrymore teamed again in Rasputin and the Empress. Joining them in a sumptuous and stirring tale about the often-called Mad Monk who held a powerful – perhaps hypnotic – sway over World War I-era Russian royalty was the third member of the American stage’s Royal Family: Ethel Barrymore, making this the lone feature with all three thespian siblings.
Intercut with footage from the actual era, the film burns with intrigue, betrayal, rivalry and the renowned trio’s talents. Lionel has the plum role of Rasputin, seething with ambition and rage. “I will be Russia!” he proclaims. History shows he would not. But this movie shows he would not be forgotten.


**Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.

        Comments about this product:

        Lionel Barrymore is the most easily recognized of these acting siblings. John and Ethel are better known for their stage work. All three are wonderful and at the height of their careers.
        Rasputin & the Empress is a fascinating look at a fascinating point in history. Included here are several cuts of actual period footage of Russia. For history buffs, this is very welcome.
        The costumes, sets, and pageantry are sumptuous.
        The acting is a bit overblown, but given that talkies were only about five years old at the time, this silent acting style is understandable; the equipment had not caught up either.
        See it.
