  • In Praise of Nicholas and Alexandra

    Hey, just thought I would share a link I found, of my favorite scene from Nicholas and Alexandra, not exactly the most historically accurate movie, but a stunning depiction of the power and majesty of the Romanov court. Skip over the scene with Lenin and Trotsky, and just wait for the bit when the Imperial family travels through the palace. Excellent cinematography and music and costume and set design. An amazing bit of culture and ceremony was lost when the monarchy fell.....
