A group of Russian exiles in Paris, France, come together to try and collect a ten-million-pound inheritance from the Bank of England, by grooming a destitute, out of sorts, young girl named Anna Koreff (Ingrid Bergman), to eventually pose as heir to the Russian throne. The group, fronted by General Sergei Pavlovich Bounine (Yul Brynner), do such a convincing job that the girl quickly believes that she is the real Anastasia all along. Their ultimate fate is to be decided by the Empress (Helen Hayes), who is extremely skeptical of the situation. A classic cinematic release, dating back over sixty years, that received more than one Oscar nomination.
