The one and only time that the Barrymore family appeared together on screen, Lionel as Rasputin, Ethel as the Tsarina, John as Prince Chegodieff (ie. Youssoupoff). This curio - the subject of litigation brought against MGM by the Prince and Princess Youssoupoff, who claimed it was historically inaccurate - is often strangely dull in its depiction of the last days of the Czar's court, although one can't deny the attraction of its impressive sets and costumes.
