Reputation of a Princess Princess Irina Youssoupoff v MGM
Written and compiled by JOHN THEOCHARIS
Narrator Peter Baldwin with When the MGM film Rasputin and the Empress was released in 1932, it was received with enthusiasm. Shortly afterwards, however, the exiled Princess Youssoupoff, niece of the last Tsar, sued mgm, maintaining that her chastity was besmirched. The trial in London turned into a duel between two of the most famous advocates of the day, and its centre-piece was an account by the plaintiff's husband of the murder of Rasputin.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
