Rasputin and the Empress
In pre-Revolutionary Russia, the scheming monk Rasputin holds the Czar and his royal family in the palm of his hand after he cures their ailing son, plotting a wicked path to greater power. This huge-scale MGM historical drama toplines the one-time collaboration of the Barrymore clan to mixed results.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Boleslawksi's lavish production of this historical melodrama is best known today as the only film that all three Barrymores (John, Ethel and Lionel) made together."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Is memorable only because it's the one and only time that the Barrymore family appeared together on screen."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Splendidly stylish, often terrifying with great turns by all the Barrymores."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
