Mr. Andrew Borden:
You're a strange girl, Lizzie, one minute as hard and as cold as a grave so, next as loving as any father could wish. Wonder what goes on in that mind of yours, I guess I'll never know.

Who doesn't remember watching the world premiere of this made- for-television-movie on ABC back in 1975. This film stars the great Elizabeth Montgomery (who should have won an Emmy) as Lizzie Borden, accused of killing her father (and step-mother) with an axe. Liz, gives a powerful, understated, performance. What makes this film great is the way Montgomery can portray Lizzie in that subtle, cool way that is very effective. All the supporting cast including "Soap" star Katherine Helmond, are terrific (look for Gloria Stuart in a very brief appearance as a store customer watching "Lizzie" purchase an axe). This is a classic film. Get this on video, people!!
