Photo of the Day

Rasputin (Edmund Purdom) works his "charms" on Czarina Alexandra (Gianna Maria Canale) in THE NIGHT THEY KILLED RASPUTIN (1961)

I've never seen this film and refuse to watch it even though I want to simply because the only copy that's available this side of the Atlantic is in black & white when originally this production was filmed in Eastmancolor. I like the one from Hammer with Christopher Lee even if that one is more cliff notes version of history so I can't wait to watch this one and compare it with the Hammer one.

I never saw this version, but I did see the Lee version which I thought was a typical Hammer film. The story in the movie of NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA of Rasputin is by far the best in my opinion. That movie was very good and a lot of truth in it.
