The Legend of Lizzie Borden (1975) DVD!

Listed for Pre-order May 13th, 2014!
Good news, this long-awaited historical courtroom murder horror drama with Elizabeth Montgomery is finally being released onto DVD.
I've never heard of the studio releasing it, so hopefully it's decent quality, and the longer European cut of this made-for-TV movie.

I've heard this adaptation is very good. Can't wait to check it out.

I was hoping the latest Christina Ricci tv-movie would be decent but I found it pretty meh. Too bad - I love Ricci but haven't seen her in anything good for a long time.

I remember this aired on A&E years ago when I was around 12 or 13 and I was genuinely creeped out by it (especially the 'waste not want not' dinner scene). Great performances all around. Looking forward to this release!

This is great news! I can't remember if I rented this on VHS or caught it on late night TV but it was phenomenal! Been waiting and hoping for this one to get a DVD release for years!

I hope it's a legit release but I'm skeptical. The artwork on amazon is the same as this "release" from a bootleg company.

"New Video Group" has a website but doesn't list this as an upcoming release. You'd think a legitimate release would have an announcement somewhere on the net but there's nothing about this. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer. I hope I'm wrong.

I used to watch this in the 80s and 90s often because it was always on late night TBS or TNT.

Yeah, but that was a Lifetime movie which by definition of Lifetime, had to suck. I haven't seen much stuff from Ricci recently, but dig After.Life from a few years ago.

It sounds like it's been cancelled, or at least it's been changed to "Currently unavailable" on Amazon.

Up for pre-order again. October 7th. I hope it really comes out with a decent transfer.

Woah, I don't know what's more surprising. Elizabeth Montgomery was nude in a film or that they were able to get away with that on a made-for-tv movie in 1975.

I'm glad this is finally being released. I think the European cut had nudity, no?

A lot of these films that were made for tv here in the states had two prints. the television print and then the one that was shown theatrically in the European market that had a couple extra swear words and a topless shot inserted in order to merit a rating that wasn't G. In the mid seventies people also realized that movie audiences needed at least a PG rating to get interested- it really kicked in after 76/77. So you see all these films that go clunk for a moment like Land That Time Forgot, when someone has to gratuitously yell "Damn" in order to hastily change the rating from G to PG. Recently saw SSTeath Flight in a Mill Creek box set, and it was the Euro cut, which had Bert Convy with a topless actress in a scene that quite frankly caused the movie to go clunk for a moment there too.
