The Legend of Lizzie Borden
The TV Version

The original TV airings of "The Legend of Lizzie Borden" were slightly different from the newer broadcasts on television. The more recent versions trim or edit the commercial break transitions. The movie fades quickly to black omitting the child chorus and on screen title that brought us to each commercial break. Click on the image to get an idea of how the original fade and the child chorus brought us to those breaks. This little detail adds eeriness to the already tense teleplay. It also gives us "The Legend of Lizzie Borden" in it's uncut -- unedited -- pure form, not found anywhere else.
