While you've probably spent your day wondering how you could ever pay reverence to the exacting honesty of Lindsay Lohan's performance in Liz & Dick, one bold prop designer took it upon himself to provide the historical accuracy required to match the truthfulness of her work. As you can see, we were so drawn in by the film, we couldn't help but press pause and read the newspaper!
So much back story…but where do we begin? How about with some proof that Richard and Elizabeth weren't the only ones struggling, and that maybe, just maybe they drew inspiration from yet another controversial love story.
The water diet was the earliest version of the Master Cleanse, and commonly swapped out with vodka.
Since Liz and Dick lived pre-squeeze bottle, their mayonnaise jar ended up breaking once hurled at the wall.
Congratulations, prop designer. You've just been nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award. Thank you for your thorough dramaturgy, and for the brief but wigless moments of entertainment.
