Movie princesses through the years
Royal by blood or marriage: Anastasia Romanov is royal by blood, but she doesn’t quite realize that without the help of a pair of con men looking to claim the bounty on the long-lost Russian princess. So Anya, an orphan who lost her memory as a child will have to suffice. Little does she know that she really is the princess.
Proof she’s a princess: Anya remembers that she’s a princess by recalling a song from a music box that her grandmother, the Dowager Empress Marie, gave her as a child before they fled Russia. She also rejects stroganoff “like a Romanov,” according to her teacher Vladimir, and manages to bring down the sorcerer Rasputin with a pair of high heels on.
Adorable sidekick: Anya befriends the stray puppy Pooka, who, along with Dmitri and Vladimir, helps her learn how to be the Russian princess and claim the reward money offered by her grandmother in Paris.(20th Century Fox)
