YESTERDAY’S NEWS --Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...
Berthe Claiche’s Revenge
Episode 297 relates the sad story of Berthe Claiche, whom we met briefly in last week’s episode when she gave a necklace to her cellmate, Josephine Terranova. I normally like to mix things up a bit, but these two tales have a lot in common, interesting back stories about immigrants struggling to adapt to American ways, courtroom theatrics, and sympathetic abused female defendants. Not that murder is ever a good idea, but if I were in their shoes... What do you think?
Culled from the historic pages of the New York Evening World, the New York Sun, and other newspapers of the era.
