More from Ric Rebelo’s “Lizbeth: A Victorian Nightmare”

18 Mar

Ric Rebelo is nearing completion of his documentary on the Borden case and here we are presented an extended YouTube video of this work in progress.


Regarding that piece of scalp that “flew from Abby’s head and landed underneath the radiator”….. like Andrew’s Prince Albert it was never presented as evidence, nor ever mentioned in any report or legal proceeding.  No matter.   If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, does it still make a sound?

Anyway, I look forward to more of these.  BTW, good acting Shelley!

    If you have any contact with Ric Rebelo, please advise him that Lizzie’s given name was NOT Elizabeth. He plainly refers to her as “Elizabeth” at approximately 30 seconds into the video that you show. Her given name was “Lizzie Andrew Borden.”

    Also, he refers to Abby as “Abigail.” Again, he is confusing the given name with a nickname. Although, like in Lizzie’s case, it’s an easy mistake, her name really was Abby, not Abigail. Abby Durfee Gray Borden.

    It’s a wonderful project, and I would have loved to have had some involvement in it. I’ve been researching Lizzie Borden for my college term paper, and have found her to be a fascinating topic. I am convinced she didn’t do it, simply because of the logistics of the event. I don’t how she could have cleaned the blood off herself in the space of minutes in a house with no running water, and in an age with no hair dryers.

      I think he did a good job on this documentation movie which is much better than any others on youtube. You are just trying to find bones out of an egg!

        I love the documentary by Ric. In fact, I am the “Special Feature” on the DVD. It is Jules’ remarks I take exception.

    When times is come, and your paper done (and publish, perhaps) would you please let us know about your theory? It sounds interesting…
