The year is 1888. A young, sexy prostitute with blonde hair is making herself up for the night. As Stauf speaks, she puts on her make-up, fixes her hair, pulls on her stockings, etc.

Stauf- Voice Over

Eight little whores, with no hope of heaven,
I'll start my fun, then there'll be seven.
Seven little whores beggin' for a shilling,
One stays in Henage Court, then there's a killing.


The blonde prostitute is walking down a dark street in the fog. She has wrapped a scarf around her face to keep out the damp chill. Her eyes peer fearfully into the mist. We hear the sound of footsteps following her.

Stauf- Voice Over

Six little whores, glad to be alive,
One sidles up to Jack, then there are five.


The prostitute stops at the end of an alley and looks back. We see a man in a top hat and cloak. The fog wafts past him, and then he is gone.

Stauf- Voice Over

Four and whore rhyme aright,
So do three and me,
I'll set the town alight


The blonde prostitute steps into a doorway. Another prostitute is standing there already: She has bright red hair and a scarf wrapped around her face. The two huddle together for warmth. The sound of footsteps comes closer. The man in the top hat and cloak stops in front of the women.

Stauf- Voice Over

Ere there are two.
Two little whores, shivering with fright,
Seek a cosy doorway in the middle of the night.

The man looks at the two women with a lascivious, wicked smile. The blond woman tries to smile back.

The prostitute with red hair glares at him. The man in the top hat stares at her. A message - or a feeling passes between them. A strange, frightened expression overcomes the man's features, and he turns and stumbles away.

The blond woman watches him go with a curious look. Then her gaze comes to rest on the other woman.

The prostitute with red hair takes off her scarf.

It is Blue Angel.

Blue Angel gently pulls the blonde prostitute towards her. The blonde prostitute is helplessly drawn to Blue Angel. She stares into Blue Angel's eyes. Then swoons in the other woman's arms.

Blue Angel lowers her to the ground. She kisses the blonde woman on the neck, the chin, then ravenously kisses her lips.

The blond prostitute groans with pleasure.

We hear a 'click' sound.

The blonde woman glances down.

Blue Angel is holding an opened straight razor.

Stauf- Voice Over

Jack's knife flashes, then there's but one,
And the last one's the ripest for Jack's idea of fun.The blond prostitute's eyes open wide with terror.

Blue Angel holds a finger to her lips whispering: "Shhhh". Then she smiles.





Hand-cranked Movie Viewer
Old fashioned nickleodeon silent movie viewer 3D french postcards come to life. Looking into it you would see a "stereo pair" of a sepia tone French postcard. Blue Angel give directions. "Cross your eyes until the images merge into one 3 dimensional image. When you've got it locked in, click on the image."

It then becomes a short series of 3D French postcard silent movies.

Can be used in connection to the Jack the Ripper Vignette. The models are the Ripper's prostitute victims.
