Didn't they even assassinate the royal dog? Bastards...

Note: Actual dog may vary

I remember a few years ago watching some series on the Hitler Channel about the Russian Czars. It was several hours long, but I watched the whole thing and learned so much. The most fascinating to me are the people who claim to be Romanov children who survived, especially Anastasia.

Thanks for bringing this up and providing the link, bear.

anytime. this thread kicks my ass, because i'm thrilled so many of you are actually interested in this.

but this hitler channel of yours sounds really interesting...is it part of the same package that includes the history channel?

This is an interesting subject. I never even heard of it when I was in high school. Thanks for bringing this up Zoom! You learn something new every day.

it's amazing, even if the author takes a few too many liberties.
I'm guessing that's where you got "the curse of the number 17" from.

I got that book on my 12th birthday, and I loved every minute of it.

Why, it's this film right here:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067483/

"Nicholas and Alexandra" (1971)

"Doctor Who" fanatics remember the actor who played Nicholas II (Michael Jayston) as "The Valeyard." And since he played a future incarnation of the Doctor, they'll never forget either. Never.

Oh and I nearly forgot. "Rasputin" (Tom Baker) became the 4th "Doctor Who." There's some useless trivia for you all.

It just means I was an extraordinarily geeky 12 year old.

I don't remember off the top of my head. It's in the book, though.

Haha...no worries.

BTW, you should read Umberto Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum." I think you'd like it. It would remind you of a long-lost forum member that you once emulated.
