An expatriate White Russian general sets in motion a grand hoax after he meets a destitute woman on the banks of the Seine River in Paris. He is amazed at her resemblance to Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas of Russia, rumored to have somehow survived the Bolsheviks' execution of the Romanoff family in 1918. He trains her to impersonate the missing princess but soon begins to feel she may be the real Anastasia. Ultimately, the truth can only be decided by one person Anastasia's grandmother, the Dowager Empress.

Fox's R1 DVD suffers from an atrocious remix in the opening reel where the music and effects track are amplified while the dialog is reduced to a barely audible whisper even at full volume, a problem that doesn't affect the rest of the film but is irritating as hell while it lasts.
Ingrid Bergman is so superb, as is Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes.Waht can you say about the scenes between Ingrid and Brynner and Ingrid with
Helen Hayes? They are so brilliant! And the p[hotography, the use of CinemaScope!
Akim Tamiroff and Martita Hunt are marvellous too. However, this DVD has major flaws with respect to the transmission of sound. The music overwhelms everyone, and the voices are low and not understandable as aresult of many imbakances. There was the Fox Tape, not LBXd but clear and balanced. What the heck happened?
. Keep the LBX tapes from Fox Movie Channel and be content, or, if you can get the Chinese DVD import, get it, beautiful sound and color. This release is sad, to be sure, but the Fox Dvds are very bad, and need to be re -done some day by competent people, by people who love film.
Look at The Gang's All Here, for example, and other box sets from Fox, the Tyrone Power one..keep the old tapes.
3 stars are only for the DVD; the film (plot, acting, etc.) deserves 5.
