Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"After years of being blacklisting, Ingrid Bergman won a second Oscar for this Hollywood-style melodrama of mystery and romance, playing an amnesiac refugee who may or may not be the real survivor of the Russian royal clan."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Bergman is enthralling as a peasant who would be princess"

‑ Chris Barsanti, Filmcritic.com
