Movie Quote(s):
  • Grigori Rasputin: When I go to confession I don't offer God small sins, petty squabbles, jealousies... I offer him sins worth forgiving!
Movie Trivia:
  • Filmed back-to-back with Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), using many of the same cast members and sets.
  • Nicholas Pennell was by error listed in Hammer PR materials as playing the role actually played by Dinsdale Landen
  • Christopher Lee and Francis Matthews spent several days filming an extended fight sequence for the film's ending. Eventually, much to Matthews's disappointment, most of the scene ended up on the cutting-room floor, leaving his bloody lip in the penultimate shot unexplained.
  • As a young boy, Christopher Lee actually met the assassins of Rasputin (Prince Yusupoff and Dmitri Pavlovich) before playing Rasputin in the film. He also met Rasputin's daughter, Maria in 1976.
  • SPOILER: The original ending had Rasputin's hand held up to his forehead in benediction as he lay dead on the ice. It was considered potentially blasphemous, however, and was cut from the final film. The shot can still be seen in some stills, however.
