The Knights of Mary Phagan (2015) – IMDb
Predictions made January 2015:
1. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will grotesquely exaggerate the Leo Frank trial, transforming it into a kangaroo court mockery of injustice in favor of Leo Frank and against Southerners, but in real life the Georgia Supreme Court Records indicate Frank had a fair trial. Every level of the United States System of Justice rejected Leo Frank’s frivolous appeals. When the Georgia Board of Pardon’s and Paroles issued Leo Frank a posthumous pardon, he was not officially absolved of his guilt for the Phagan murder.
2. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will omit the fact that Leo Frank, while seated on the witness-stand changed the murder alibi he had maintained for 3.5 months, and supposes himself in the metal-room bathroom using the men’s toilet at the back of the second floor, suggesting an explanation of why Monteen Stover found his business office unoccuppied by him between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m., which is at the exact same time he had formerly claimed to the police that he was alone with Mary Phagan in his office. (see testimony of Monteen Stover and Leo Frank’s retort on the witness stand about an “unconscious” visit to the men’s toilet.)
3. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will fail to show that Governor John M. Slaton was senior law partner and co-owner of the lawfirm that represented Leo Frank at his summer of 1913 trial. Governor Slaton’s lawfirm was officially known as, ‘Rosser, Brandon (Jewish), *Slaton* and Phillips (Jewish)’ and that Slaton earned a full 25% share of all the money made during Leo Frank’s expensive trial and appeals.
4. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will fail to mention that Leo Frank told police on Sunday, April 27, 1913, that Mary Phagan had entered his office at 12:03 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, 1913 – the day of the murder. Leo Frank changed the time of Phagan’s arrival to “12:05 to 12:10pm, maybe 12:07pm”, in a deposition to Atlanta police at the Stationhouse on April 28, 1913 (State’s Exhibit B, 1913, Atlanta Constitution, August 2nd, 1913).
5. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will fail to show the Atlanta Police found a forged blood-soaked shirt planted at Newt Lee’s shack in a burn barrel at the side of his residence meant to frame the innocent Negro. On Sunday, April 27, 1913, Leo Frank told Atlanta police that Newt Lee’s time card was punched perfectly every half hour on the evening of the murder, but on Monday April 28, 1913, Leo Frank told Atlanta police that Newt Lee missed 4 punches on his timecard slip, meaning there were 4 hours of unaccounted for time on Lee’s card.
6. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will transform the men who hanged Leo Frank into ravenous hot-headed, wild-eyed, booger eating hillbillies, instead of the calm and deliberate elite men they really were, including a former governor.
7. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will make a mockery of legal history and falsify the testimony at the trial based on the brief of evidence to make it seem like Leo Frank was convicted without evidence.
8. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will transform Leo Frank from the real life sadistic and violent pedophile, into a misunderstood nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn, railroaded by racist Southerners.
9. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will transform the Solicitor General Hugh Dorsey, the lead prosecutor of Leo Frank, to be an unscrupulous and ambitious political climber.
10. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will portray mobs outside the courtroom swarming into a KKK carnival of racist anti-Semitic Hate with people shouting death threats and anti-Jewish hate-speech Mantras.
11. The Knights of Mary Phagan Hollywood movie will over play race cards, and promote anti-Christian, anti-Gentile, Anti-Southern stereotype.
