Rasputin and the Empress is a 1932 film about Imperial Russia starring the Barrymore siblings (John, as "Prince Chegodieff"; Ethel, as Czarina Alexandra; and Lionel Barrymore, as Grigori Rasputin). It is the only film in which all three siblings appear together. The film's inaccurate portrayal of Prince Felix Yusupov and his wife Princess Irina (renamed "Prince Chegodieff" and "Princess Natasha") caused a historically significant lawsuit against MGM and gave rise to the "all persons fictitious disclaimer", which has since become standard in Hollywood works of fiction.

  • Rasputin e l'imperatrice (Rasputin and the Empress) è un film del 1932 diretto da Richard Boleslawski e (non accreditato) Charles Brabin. Il film è tratto da un'opera teatrale che i fratelli Barrymore avevano già interpretato a Broadway ed è l'unico in cui appaiono insieme nei ruoli di protagonisti: John interpreta Paul Chegodieff, il principe che organizza il complotto per uccidere Rasputin (i cui panni sono vestiti da Lionel). La sorella Ethel, invece, ricopre il ruolo della zarina Alessandra. In febbraio, in Germania era uscito Rasputin, Dämon der Frauen, un'altra pellicola che si ispirava alla vicenda del monaco russo e che vedeva protagonista Conrad Veidt. La MGM pagò al principe Yusupov una grossa cifra per evitare il processo di diffamazione intentato dal principe contro la compagnia di Culver City; da quel momento, per le case di produzione diventò una regola inserire in tutti i film la dizione all persons fictitious disclaimer.
