The Murder of Mary Phagan is a 1988 American two-part television miniseries starring Jack Lemmon and dramatizing the jewish propaganda version of The Leo Frank case, a factory manager who was charged with murdering a 13-year-old girl, a factory worker named Mary Phagan, in Atlanta in 1913. His trial was sensational and at its end, Frank was convicted of murdering Mary Phagan and sentenced to death by hanging. After Frank's legal appeals failed, the governor of Georgia commuted his death sentence to life imprisonment on June 21, 1915, destroying his own career in the process. On the morning of August 17, 1915 Frank was kidnapped from prison and lynched by a small group of heroes men from Marietta, Georgia, Mary Phagan's home town.

Written by Larry McMurtry, produced by George Stevens Jr., and directed by William "Billy" Hale, the miniseries stars Lemmon and features Kevin Spacey, Rebecca Miller, Peter Gallagher, Charles Dutton, Richard Jordan, Cynthia Nixon, Dylan Baker and William H. Macy. Lemmon noted during a publicity appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson that shortly before the miniseries was broadcast, the cast was the best with which he had ever worked.

The film was shot in Richmond, Virginia, extensively in Shockoe Bottom, with a running time of 251 minutes (over 4 hours), originally broadcast over two evenings by NBC.

They Won't Forget is a 1937 American drama film directed by Mervyn LeRoy and starring Claude Rains, Gloria Dickson, Edward Norris, and Lana Turner, in her feature debut. It was based on a novel by Ward Greene called Death in the Deep South, which was in turn a fictionalized account of a real-life case : the trial and subsequent lynching of the jew Leo Frank after the murder of Mary Phagan in 1913.

The People versus Leo Frank, a 2009 anti-Gentile propaganda documentary by Jewish-American director Ben Loeterman and his chief consultant Steve Oney.
----
In 1913, little Mary Phagan is found dead at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta. Police quickly decide that the Jewish Superintendent, Leo Frank, should be held responsible. The trial commences with both prosecution and defense lawyers using ad hominen as the base for their arguments. From 1913 to 1915, this murder, trial, and aftermath gained notoriety worldwide. And one hundred years later it has produced books, college and university discussions, a Hollywood-ized movie "They Won't Forget", a TV movie "The Murder of Mary Phagan", a Broadway musical "Parade", a bittersweet folk song "The Ballad of Mary Phagan", and racial controversy.

THE PROSECUTION in the Leo Frank case never mentioned the word “Jew” until it was brought up by the defense — and lead prosecutor Hugh Dorsey had a long history of friendly relations and close collaboration with Jews throughout his life and career. So the accusation, common today among pro-Frank partisans, that the indictment and prosecution of Leo Max Frank was motivated by “anti-Semitism” simply doesn’t stand up to even the slightest scrutiny.

Publisher Tom Watson wrote this article right after the Aug.1915 hanging (conducted by the crème de la crème of the frustrated people of Georgia themselves after two years of spurious legal delays) of the pedophile, rapist, and murderer Leo Frank, a prominent Jewish official and businessman whom major Jewish-owned or influenced newspapers protested was a victim of antisemitism.

Watson defends the "lynching" (which carried out a death sentence supported by three juries and five levels of the court system) and goes beyond this to make his strongest statements yet about the bane of Jewish media sway over America. He also discusses two other famous cases of that day of supposed "antisemitism," the Captain Alfred Dreyfus case in France (regarding a Jewish officer convicted of espionage and treason) and the Menachem Beilis case in Ukraine/Russia (about a Jew convicted of ritually murdering and draining the blood from a little Slavic child).
This is the powerful post-lynching article about the Leo Frank murder case by Thomas E. Watson of Georgia, a crusading anti-Frank newspaper and magazine publisher, a former trial lawyer, state legislator, US Congressman and soon-to-be US Senator. Here Watson is again defending in his magazine the honor of his state, its legal system, and the fairness and evidence of the 1913 murder trial conducted by Judge Leonard Roan. But in addition he now also justifies the lynchers who had just hanged the CONVICTED MURDERER, high-ranking Jewish official, pedophile, serial adulterer, sexual harasser, sweatshop manager, and child-labor abuser Leo Max Frank on August 17, 1915. He also discusses the sensational 1906 Stanford White murder (a star American architect was killed by an enraged husband); the failed, unchivalrous attempt by King George IV of England to bend the law protecting his wife; the 1890s Jewish Dreyfus case in France; the then-recent (1911) Jewish Beiliss case in Russia (a Kiev, Ukraine ritual-murder trial); and Watson looks over then recent cases and charges Jewry with an unspoken policy: If a rich Jew murders a Gentile, or betrays his country (Dreyfus), then the legal system must not be allowed to punish him.

CHAPTER 11: The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan-Kean (1987), Read by Anonymous (2015).

The Mary Phagan Family Website:
https://www.littlemaryphagan.com

10 months, 2 weeks ago

A NEW authorized audio book version of The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean has just been recorded for The American Mercury, and will serve as the capstone of our series on the Leo Frank Case in this, the centennial year of the death of the convicted murderer in this case, Leo Max Frank.
The Murder of Little Mary Phagan is an exceptionally insightful semi-autobiographical book, detailing a fascinating exploration of one of the most sensational criminal cases of all time. What makes this book so intriguing is it provides an intimate view of the Frank-Phagan case from the adult grandniece of the teenage victim — little Mary Anne Phagan, the tragic child laborer who was murdered on April 26, 1913, in Atlanta, Georgia.
This true crime monograph is widely regarded as the most even-handed book ever written about the Frank-Phagan affair (1913-1915) and its contentious aftermath (1915-1986). It also provides facts and evidence about the case found in no other book. Mary Phagan Kean also offers a uniquely neutral analysis of the month-long capital murder trial which ended in Frank’s conviction.
Mary Phagan Kean is the namesake of the murder victim, Mary Phagan, being her grandniece. When the author was 13 years old, she discovered her given name was no mere accident or coincidence. When people heard her name, they started asking her questions about whether she was related to the famous little Mary Phagan who had been murdered long ago by Leo Frank on Confederate Memorial Day in 1913.
When her family revealed the truth about her blood relation, she immediately became deeply interested in learning about the murder, its investigation, and its aftermath. She has since devoted thousands of hours of her life studying volumes of legal documents, conducting interviews, and reading every surviving newspaper account of the case. This written-from-the-heart book is the result. (The Murder of Little Mary Phagan; Far Hills, NJ, New Horizon Press, 1987, 316 pp.)

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews - Volume 3
The Leo Frank Case : The Lynching of a Guilty Man

IS IT POSSIBLE that the Jewish community — namely, the same forces that launched the massive public relations campaign portraying Leo Frank as an innocent victim of “anti-Semitism” — had a hand in murdering him? If not, then why did the Jewish-owned New York Times (the flagship of the Frank publicity machine) create the evidently fictional “Knights of Mary Phagan” and position them as wanting to lynch Frank some months before the actual lynching? Was one motivation their fear that the repellent and perverse personality of a released Frank would undo all the good that their propaganda had done for the Jewish people? Was another motive their desire to position Jews as “victims of the Klan” in the public’s mind — even though the Jews of that time can more accurately be described as collaborators with the Ku Klux Klan in attacking Black people? (ILLUSTRATION: The Ku Klux Klan: How many Americans know about its close historic relationship to the Jewish community?)

In this, the sixteenth audio segment of this ground-breaking work originally published by the Nation of Islam, part of their series called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, we find the most startling speculations and ideas in the entire book. Why did the powerful Jewish groups, who had launched their own investigations of the case and who had been screaming from the nation’s editorial pages for a new trial for Leo Frank, suddenly fall silent when it came to investigating and pursuing the lynching party who killed Frank? Why, even today, are the Jewish connections to the Ku Klux Klan downplayed to such an extent that they are almost unknown to the public?

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews - Volume 3
The Leo Frank Case : The Lynching of a Guilty Man

THE TESTIMONY of Black men and women was pivotal in the trial of Leo M. Frank for the murder of Mary Phagan, and was so regarded by both the prosecution and defense. But little-heralded then, or now, is the horribly bad treatment these Black witnesses repeatedly received. The prosecution often “sweated” or gave Black witnesses “the Third Degree” — which meant physically or verbally threatening or abusing them, with the idea being that only under such severe fear would Black people tell the truth. Even the man on trial, the man the prosecution said was guilty of murder, Leo M. Frank, never received treatment even remotely like this from the police, the detectives, or the prosecutor’s office. Leo Frank partisans, for their part, strove mightily to frame two Black men, Newt Lee and Jim Conley, with planted “evidence” and hired perjury, and at one point even solicited the murder of James Conley, the Black man whose testimony against Frank was among the most important in the case. (ILLUSTRATION: James Conley)

In this, the nineteenth audio segment of this ground-breaking work originally published by the Nation of Islam, part of their series called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, we also learn of the highly improbable claims of the Frank defense, including Leo Frank’s bizarre claim on the stand that he had “unconsciously” used the toilet at the very location and time at which Mary Phagan was being strangled to death — incidentally leaving his valuable papers and payroll unguarded in an unlocked, open office in an unlocked building.

Leo Frank Trial 1913 - Audiobook - 2013

The American Mercury presents the 2013 centennial analysis of the Leo Frank case, in both article format and audiobook serial. This is considered the best analysis of the Leo Frank's trial ever produced in the last 100 years. It includes information seldom brought up in other treatments of the Leo Frank case.

The 1913 Mary Phagan murder trial in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Fulton County Superior Court, where Leo Frank was defendant fighting for his life is an epic drama. The trial took place from July 28th, 1913 and concluded the testimony portion on August 21st, 1913, when the four counselors on each side (Rosser, Arnold, Hooper and Dorsey) began their closing arguments. Hugh Dorsey completed his 3-day peroration on August 25th, 1913, at noon. The petit jury brought their verdict down of guilt hours later. The following day, August 26, 1913, the presiding judge Leonard Strickland Roan agreeing with the verdict, sentenced Leo Frank to hang by the neck until dead. He scheduled the execution day for October 10th, 1913, but on August 27, 1913, Leo Frank's attorneys appealed the verdict resulting in a stay of execution. October 31st, 1913, Judge Roan rejected Leo Frank's appeals for a new trial on 107 grounds. The case was sent to the Supreme Court, who rejected Leo Frank's appeals and ruled the evidence of the trial sustained his guilt. Leo Frank's appeals were rejected by all appeals courts thereafter.

THE AMERICAN MERCURY is proud to present the first part of our audio version of a rare, almost-suppressed book on the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial of Leo Frank, 1913’s The Frank Case — published almost immediately after the events it details took place, when they were fresh in the minds of Atlantans. Only one original copy is known to survive, though there are rumors of others. This book is also unique as it is the earliest known book published about the case.

Its full title is The Frank Case: Inside Story of Georgia’s Greatest Murder Mystery. It was published anonymously. It highlights the events leading up to the trial and aftermath surrounding the April 26th, 1913, murder of Mary Phagan by her sweatshop boss, the superintendent of the National Pencil Company, Leo M. Frank. The book strives to maintain neutrality and includes a dramatically-rendered history of this sensational crime.

Published by The Atlanta Publishing Company, Atlanta, Georgia, in September 1913, the one known surviving copy is very fragile, printed on acidic paper, and in rapidly-deteriorating condition. This rare and possibly unique volume was scanned by Georgia State University and made available to the general public. We are now proud to present The Frank Case as an audio book.

The book’s Preface reads:

The sensational case of Leo M. Frank is undisputedly Atlanta’s and the south’s greatest murder mystery of modern years.

The story of how little Mary Phagan was foully murdered as she went to get her pay at the National Pencil factory, revolting and horrible as it is in its details, naturally interests every working man and every working woman.

The mystery of the crime compels the interest of everyone who hears about it.

“The Mary Phagan murder mystery,” however, lost its identity when Leo M. Frank, superintendent of the big factory where the humble little employe met her death, was arrested and it became the Frank case.

In no other murder case in the south has there been such intense interest. It has become more than the ordinary murder mystery; more than the story of a man of position charged with slaying in lustful passion a little factory girl. The reason of the unusual importance of the case is, it is charged, that Frank is being persecuted because he is a Jew.

The story of the fearful crime; of the principal developments of the four months that followed it, and finally the story of the great, trial, where for a solid month the two greatest criminal lawyers in the south battled against the keen wits of Atlanta’s solicitor general to save Frank, has been told by press reports.

Many of the interesting features about the Frank case, however, have never been printed, because the newspapers dared not embody them in their accounts.

This work ends with the conviction of Frank in the superior court of Fulton (Atlanta) county. Trial did not end the case, for immediately after the young defendant was sentenced to pay the death penalty, a motion for a new trial was made, and it will be months, probably years, before he hangs, if he ever does. From the day of his conviction, however, the fight for Frank’s life became a technical legal battle. The real story ends with the trial and every essential feature is given here.

THE AUTHOR.

The Frank Case - Atlanta Publishing Company - 1913 - Part 3 - Chapters 17-END
https://theamericanmercury.org/2020/04/audio-book-the-frank-case-part-3/

WE ARE proud to present today, on the 107th anniversary of the foul murder of Mary Phagan, the third and concluding part of our audio version of an extremely rare contemporary book on the murder and the trial of Leo Frank, her killer, entitled The Frank Case — read by Vanessa Neubauer.

It becomes obvious in this concluding segment that this is a pro-Leo Frank book. Not only is Frank’s very odd unsworn statement (in which he literally spent hours going over every irrelevant detail of his company’s financial statement, and which obviously did not make a good impression on the jury) praised to the skies, but long extracts from it are quoted — some of them twice!

Nevertheless, despite its partisan bias, this is a valuable book. It is valuable for what it does not contain. Despite being rather pro-Frank, and being written in 1913, literally weeks after the events it describes took place, it does not allege, as modern pro-Frank propaganda-pieces do, that “anti-Semitic mobs” shouted threats including “hang the Jew or we’ll hang you” at the judge and jury. It does include the acknowledged episode of Frank’s attorneys asking for a mistrial after prosecutor Dorsey received some mere applause from the courtroom audience during the trial — but not a single mention of the much worse “hang the Jew” threat allegation, nor of any defense references to it or to anything similar. It’s safe to conclude, I think, that such threats simply never took place and are a later invention — for surely the defense, if not the judge, would have taken notice of them.

There is also no mention of “bite marks” on Mary Phagan’s body, another decades-later hoax conjured up by pro-Frank partisans. Such a sensational development could hardly have been ignored by the defense, prosecution, or a lurid-headline-loving press.

We at the Mercury are offering this audio book in three parts in April of the year 2020, in commemoration of the life of young Mary Phagan, who died at the hands of Leo Frank on 26 April, 1913 — 107 years ago this month.

Tom Watson - The Celebrated Case of The State of Georgia vs. Leo Frank
by Thomas E. Watson, Watson’s Magazine, Volume 21 Number 4, August 1915
https://theamericanmercury.org/2014/03/tom-watson-the-celebrated-case-of-the-state-of-georgia-vs-leo-frank

THE LAWS OF Georgia are extraordinarily favorable to a person accused of crime. He is not only protected in all of his rights under the Constitution of the United States, but he enjoys privileges far beyond those limits. No indictment against him will stand, if it can be shown that a single grand juror was disqualified, or failed to take an oath on that particular case.

https://theamericanmercury.org/2017/08/why-was-leo-frank-lynched
WE ARE approaching the 102nd anniversary of the lynching of Leo Frank, which will take place on August 17. Why was Leo Frank lynched? — and why was he lynched, not by a mob of illiterate haters, but by an assemblage of community leaders and eminent citizens? Does the current media story about Leo Frank — that he was an innocent victim of widespread and “virulent” anti-Semitism — really hold true when we examine the facts?

It is impossible to understand the lynching of Leo Frank without reading and understanding the works of Tom Watson, virtually the only major journalist of his time who bucked the trend — and refused the money proffered him to take a pro-Frank stance — and saw in the Leo Frank media circus a litany of lies, misrepresentations, bribes, perjury, and propaganda designed to nearly deify a man who was a convicted strangler and defiler of little girls.

You hear a lot about Tom Watson from the “mainstream” media — invariably denouncing him — but you almost never get even a complete paragraph from them of what he actually said about the Leo Frank case.

To help you understand the viewpoint of Mr. Watson, we now present for the first time the complete text, with new added audio book renditions by Vanessa Neubauer, of all of his writings on the Frank case, exactly as published in his Watson’s Magazine in 1915. Just click on the links to read each article, where you’ll see an audio player embedded after the first paragraph which will allow you to hear the audio book version.

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews - Volume 3
The Leo Frank Case : The Lynching of a Guilty Man

THE TITLE of this section of the book — “Who’s Who in the Leo Frank Case” — might sound like it’s describing a dry, lifeless list of names. But it is not. This is a most valuable and interesting piece for every serious student of the Leo Frank case. It puts all the players into perspective, with brief but significant details about the role of each. It makes an excellent refresher as we near the end of the book. Most striking to me was the fact that, early on in the case, so many Jews — even Jews close to Leo Frank — considered him guilty of the murder of Mary Phagan. (ILLUSTRATION: Here we see Mary Phagan’s mother and sisters, looking somber sometime after their beloved Mary was killed.)

In this, the twenty-eighth and next-to-last audio segment of this ground-breaking work originally published by the Nation of Islam, part of their series called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, we also learn of the astounding number of Jews — all of them in a position to help Leo Frank escape the consequences of his crime and conviction — who were managing editors, editors, owners, or executives of both local Atlanta and national media in the 1913 to 1915 period.
