    I think, if you watch this movie and try to make it reconcile with history, you will be left wanting for not seeing the absolute brilliance of the acting, dialogue and cinematography. There were only two actresses, Maybe three, who could have played Anastasia. Grace Kelly and Ingrid Bergman. Jean Simmons had an outside chance. The unusual nature of Kelly and Bergman's being made them seem royal even as commoners and vice versa. They were, always, believable and when they hurt, I hurt. They were transcendent beings who died within weeks of each other in 1982. Yul Brynner was wonderful as, first, a mercenary to riches who fell in love with Anastasia, for reasons beyond money. I was impressed with Helen Hayes as the dowager empress and Martita Hunt, as Baroness Elena von Livenbaum. The timing between Hayes and Hunt was impeccable, needing to be, for the fast-paced dialogue, at times. Yes, this is a masterpiece. I give it a five out of five. Tamiroff wasn't bad either. Just the right touch of servility and deceit, whose character was smart enough to take his cues from Brynner's.

    This was Ingrid Bergman's big come back in Hollywood. Also; one of Helen Hayes best performances on the screen. And of course, it was a vintage year for Yul Brynner's career.

    The movie lacked contenuity, took to long to develop. Beautiful color, and outdoor scenes. Brynner and Bergman were great.My wife has a hearing problem so, with the clipped accents and no Closed Caption she could not watch the show on TCM...

    A very good movie with fine performances, cinematography and music score. Ingrid Beman gives an Oscar-deserving performance as the title character who may or may not be a Russian princess, but it is Helen Hayes who steals the movie as the princess' grandmother. Yul Brynner and the rest of the cast are good also, especially Marita Hunt as a wacky Baroness. The movie maintains a strong pace until the very end when we are left without a resolution whether or not Anastasia was actually a Russian princess.

    A fictionalized story about a woman who may be the Czar's deceased daughter. With Bergman's second Oscar- winning performance, she won back American audiences for this spellbinding performance. More of a fairy tale than accurate story from real- life events, which put me off. Still, it's an excellent vehicle for Bergman. I give it a 3/5.

    I enjoyed this movie immensely. I'm a sucker for a good love story and Yul Brenner and Ingrid Bergman were perfect in their roles. The story, setting and the suspense was great!

    This is one of those highly regarded classics that I just don't understand what all the fuss is about. It's a god film, but I don't see anything extraordinary about it. Ingrid Bergman is fine, but winning an Oscar? I get a little bored with the subject of the film. Good production.
