Storyline

In imperial Russia, Rasputin is meant to be living the secluded, spiritual life of a monk. But he is in reality a debauched and depraved womaniser, a man with powers of healing and hypnotism, which, after he has hacked a man’s hand off and attempted to rape a young woman, his religious superiors think must have come from the Devil. Determined to use his powers to further himself, he heads for St Petersburg and, thanks to the help he elicits from Sonia, a lady-in-waiting, he soon finds himself in a position of influence over the Tsarina herself. But, Rasputin still has powerful enemies…..

Footnotes

Although Michael Ripper is not seen in this film, his voice can nevertheless be heard. In the scene where Rasputin is on his way to St Petersburg, the voice of the uncredited actor (Bartlett Mullins) playing the part of the old peasant driving the cart has clearly been dubbed by that of Ripper.
