  The most amazing conspiracy the world has ever known, and love as it never happened to a man and woman before!   The world will never know if the real Russian princess Anastasia met her death at the hands of red Russian rebels or if she lived on. Based on fact, this story is set against the mystery surrounding this elusive puzzle. Ingrid Bergman portrays the destitute woman who remarkably resembles the true Princess Anastasia. She is chosen by two Russian courtiers to masquerade as the princess in order to gain ten million pounds. Meeting scepticism originally from the family, Anastasia wins her way into the hearts of the family and film lovers alike.  

Anatole Litvak's screen adaptation of the popular play written by Marcelle Maurette. Ingrid Bergman stars (in her first Hollywood role, for several years, after her 'scandalous' affair with Roberto Rossellini) as an amnesiac in Paris during the early 1920s who is picked up by an exiled White Russian General (Yul Brynner) and encouraged to pose as the long-lost daughter, Anastasia, of the murdered Czar Nicholas of Russia. If she successfully passes as Anastasia, the General and his co-horts stand to gain the £10 million that has been held in trust at the Bank of England. However, they have to convince the only surviving member of the Romanov family, the Grand Duchess (Helen Hayes) before they can get their hands on the money. Bergman won an Academy Award for her role.
