Goofs

As Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich discusses the family party to celebrate the birth of the Tsarevich Alexis, the tsar looks out a window at a scene of his daughters playing in the snow with Monsieur Gilliard, their French tutor. Alexis was born in August, so there would not have been snow, even in northern Russia.


Crazy Credits

"By courtesy of the National Theatre of G.B." is written underneath Tom Baker and Laurence Olivier's names in the end credits. "By courtesy of the Royal Shakespeare Company" is written underneath Janet Suzman's name.


Alternate Versions

In a capsule review of the film dated 30 July 1972, when it had been on general release in the USA for 7 months, New York Times critic Vincent Canby comments, "the film has been cut by approximately 15 minutes since it originally opened, though the ads don't say so." He does not make clear what footage has been trimmed.
