The historical drama Anastasia (1956) tells the tale of a damaged amnesiac (Ingrid Bergman, an Oscar®-winner for her performance) who may or may not be the lost Romanoff princess, Anastasia. She becomes the accomplice (willing or not?) of a charming White Russian general (Yul Brynner) in a plot to swindle a boatload of money out of the grieving Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna (Helen Hayes). At stake: not just money, but the putative Anastasia’s emotional sanity. Directed by Anatole Litvak, produced by Buddy Adler, and featuring a stunning score by Alfred Newman, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

"A wonderfully moving and entertaining motion picture from start to finish, and the major credit inevitably must go to Ingrid Bergman, who turns in a great performance.” – Variety

“Mr. Laurents has wisely given it geographical range, added strong scenes that the play barely suggested and expanded the conflicts within the heroine. Anatole Litvak has smartly staged it for a fine projection of its human ironies. And it is played with keen sensitivity by Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes…one strong complex of melodrama, mystery and romance.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
