Produced by the legendary Sam Spiegel (Lawrence of Arabia) and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton), Nicholas and Alexandra (1971), based on Robert K. Massie’s scholarly biography, tells the story of the last of the Romanov dynasty, overtaken by the headlong rush of history and the Russian Revolution. The Tsar (Michael Jayston) and Tsarina (Janet Suzman), distracted by the deadly hemophilia of their only son and blindly convinced of their right to autocratic rule, have no way of coping with the demands of their starving and impoverished people—and their fealty to the bizarre charismatic monk Rasputin (Tom Baker) only hastens their downfall. Featuring cameo appearances by Laurence Olivier, Michael Redgrave, Jack Hawkins, Irene Worth, John Wood, Brian Cox, and Ian Holm.

“Sam Spiegel comes up with a rarity, the intimate epic, in telling the fascinating story of the downfall of the Romanovs…there's a feel here for tragically opposed worlds both heading blindly on a collision course towards the inevitable bloody clash.” —Variety

“Nicholas and Alexandra covers such an extraordinary period, events so bizarre, and a course of history so implacable, that I was fascinated…The physical production is lovely—all that money can buy.” —The New York Times

Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.
