Ingrid Bergman, as Anastasia, and Yul Brynner as the dashing mastermind behind her identity make for a fabulous film. These actors could carry even a weakly scripted movie, but this movie has a great script and wonderful character actors as well.

Movie Reviews

Brilliant movie, brilliant performances, out of synch sound!
Ballet Boy | USA | 07/29/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I have waited forever for the release of this magnificent movie. Amazing performances by Bergman, Brynner, Hayes (incredible) and Hunt. Unfortunately, there was a glitch in the brand new, out of the box DVD AND, the sound in the middle of the film was out of synch. How Fox could have let this go is a total mystery to me. I am very upset about it considering the amount of money that must have gone into the restoration. DVDs' are becoming worse all the time with quality slipping down the drain. Worth seeing and seeing again if Fox could fix their problems. Unfortunately I must return it."
Superb film- DVD transfer marred by poor sound balance.

"The film has never looked so exquisite - bright restored colors and the full widescreen. Beware though that original negative sound elements were damaged in reels 1,4 and 5. The dialogue is recorded at very low levels compared to the loud, bright musical track - and the dialogue levels vary from left side of screen to right side of screen. This is something technicians could easily have corrected, but chose not to. Shoddy work from Fox technicians mars what would otherwise have been a great DVD film release."

"Great Movie - Horrible DVD! I'm rating this one star because the DVD quality is so bad. For the first time, I'm in the process of returning an item to Amazon. This makes me sad because I love this film and wanted to add this to my growing collection of classic films in my DVD Library. The sound is not always in synch and the volume goes up and down. The sound is absolutely terrible!"
