Does anyone know anything about this "New Lizzie Movie" with Gary Busey ? I just seen a reference to it on line now, for the first time. Maybe I have been away from Lizzie for too long.

I have not heard of a Lizzie movie starring Gary Busey, so I Googled ‘Gary Busey Lizzie’, and found that there was a film titled, Lizzie (2012), which was released on September 10, 2013 in the USA. Is this the film you are referring to?

However, during my research I found out that there is a Lizzie film coming out sometime this year, titled, Lizzie (2017), but as far as I can tell, Gary Busey is not in this film: http://tinyurl.com/y7qkyznx - http://tinyurl.com/ycarfjyb - http://tinyurl.com/ybldvmhc

There is a movie that was planned for major motion picture release, with Chloe Sevigny as Lizzie and Kristen Stewart (of Twilight fame!) as Bridget Sullivan. I've since heard that it may go straight to digital rather than going to movie theaters which makes me think the script must not be great. I was really sad when I heard that; I want to see it on the big screen! I blogged a few times about the movie when they released stills from the shoot. Here are three blog posts to look at:
1. This link is fun because I created diptychs with the actors paired with their historical counterparts (some of them in costume for the movie): http://erikamailman.blogspot.com/2016/1 ... words.html.
2/ This one shows some movie stills: http://erikamailman.blogspot.com/2016/1 ... movie.html
3. And more movie stills: http://erikamailman.blogspot.com/2016/1 ... movie.html
Enjoy!!

I saw the movie with Gary Busey in it. It was terrible and not even based on the case itself. In one scene they showed Mr. Borden raping Bridgett. It was a joke.

Hello Rockalbert, welcome to the forum.

Yes, PattiG157 saw the movie; her review of it is in the post just above your post.

I do not understand why someone cannot just make a movie telling what we know, not what we THINK happened or making something up altogether. Show Uncle John coming in the night before the murders (which NO movie has ever done!), show the burning of the dress three days later, show the visitors to Lizzie's jail cell while she was awaiting trial. There are enough things we DO know that we can show, then let the viewers decide for themselves. This new movie sounds ridiculous (Lizzie and Maggie in a relationship???), and so was the one with Christina Ricci. The only one that showed a few facts is the one with Elizabeth Montgomery made in the mid-70s. I'm still waiting for someone to make a movie about Lizzie that doesn't frustrate us Lizzie fanatics!!!

Thanks for the links to the new Lizzie movie, MB.

Patti, I would also like to see a movie about the Borden murders that only show the facts, but I think it is wishful thinking on our part. Both the movie starring Christina Ricci and the one starring Elizabeth Montgomery failed to have Uncle John's character in them; at least this new movie is supposed to have him in it.

Keeping in mind this is fiction. And in the genre of story telling, one is at liberty of twisting the truth as they see fit. But to me it begs the question, "have we no decency?" I hear that there is a scene where Lizzie and Bridget are completely naked. Subtleties are no longer left to the mind. The screen does the job for you. Your imagination is left in your pocket. I wonder whom they are soliciting here? Easy question to answer.

To anyone that knows the truth behind the Borden saga he/she can easily twist their creativeness, perception, and twisted mind's eye to make things work. But to those who know nothing about the crime or very little about the life and times of Lizzie Borden, a movie like this can be down right depraved if not perverse, molding there perception of the crime in perverted paths. Especially since the real Lizzie Borden was found innocent and her good name is persistently dragged through the mud.

I should be one to speak. :shock: :-? :oops: I too twisted the truth when I wrote about Lizzie. I did hold back a lot. Regrettably, I too feel at times I went a little too far.

In most cases something is seriously lost (or gained) when a story is translated from the printed word to the screen.

Today with all the visual and shocking action smeared onto the cinema screen it has become more difficult to hold the interested of the common movie goer. Such an audience would be bored to death by a movie like Love Story or an old Bogart flick.

I had entertained writing a love story about Lizzie Borden.... one that occurs before, during, and into her latter life. With a sympathetic pungency into Lizzie's desires. Not concentrating on the crime but her Maplecroft years.....making it as realistic and plausible as possible. But sadly I am done writing about Lizzie, though I enjoy doing so here on the forum.

I just wish someone would write a real account of the crime. Yes, twist it a little. Add extra fictional characters. But make it true to the real story. You are not going to entertain me with two naked women embracing. Or a naked women and a man. If the account was true then it could comfortable be recored to film. Otherwise it's all sensationalism and in some cases, smut.

All and all, each to their own. Just not me.
