The Story of Anastasia and in the UK, Is Anna Anderson Anastasia? (German: Anastasia, die letzte Zarentochter), is a German film directed by Falk Harnack. The 1956 film is based on the true story of a woman in Berlin who was pulled from the Landwehr Canal in 1920 and who later claimed to be Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas II of Russia. The entire family was executed in the Russian Revolution, but this was not confirmed until their graves were discovered in 1991 and 2007. The American film Anastasia, directed by Anatole Litvak and featuring Ingrid Bergman appeared the same year.
