Rasputin the Mad Monk

In imperial Russia, Rasputin is meant to be living the secluded, spiritual life of a monk.

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.

Uncredited here, actor Brian Wilde went on to star in two BBC TV comedies – as Mr Barrowclough “Porridge” and Foggy in “Last of the Summer Wine”.
