- At the time this drama was filmed, it was not then known that Anna Andersen was not the Grand Duchess Anastasia; this fact was only discovered later, through DNA comparison after her death.

- 'Christian Bale' (qv)'s first movie.

- The last film project for 'Rex Harrison (I)' (qv).

- 'Nastassja Kinski' (qv) was at one point considered for the starring role.

- 'Amy Irving' (qv) was so impressed with 'Christian Bale' (qv) that she recommended him to her then-husband 'Steven Spielberg' (qv), who was casting the lead for his next project, _Empire of the Sun (1987)_ (qv). Spielberg gave Bale the lead role, and while the film received mixed reviews, Bale was universally praised.
