You just can't keep a good man down!
Lured to a house by Prince Yusupov the Mad Monk is offered cream buns that he wisely declines. However greed gets the better of him, and Ol' Raz decides to eat three of the cyanide-filled cream buns. No effect!
The Prince then disappears and fetches back poisoned wine which Raz duly quaffs down. Still no effect!!
The Prince, who is mighty shaken by now, finally shoots Rasputin several times. When the Prince bends down to check the body that the doctor proclaimed as dead, he is somewhat perturbed to be grabbed by the throat by our resolute monk.
Rasputin manages to stagger out of the buildingm in to the snow and make good his escape. Before he can escape the grounds though, he is shot several times more whilst trying to climb the gates. Much to the relief of the Prince, the mad monk finally expires.
Or does he?? To dispatchg of the corpse, Rasputin's body is finally flung over a bridge, but when it is eventually retrieved, Rasputin's lungs are full of water, meaning he was still alive when he hit the water.
Mr. Rickman achieves all this with some fine RADA-trained staggering!
Note from Mouseburger: I have categorised Rasputin as a Goody (Major). Although he is not a nice chappie, as the story is about him, I feel it only fair to cast him in a more favourable light than history (and Boney M) have.
