The Curious Case of the Boy Jones is an animated short based on the book Queen Victoria's Stalker by Jan Bondeson.
Following her coronation in 1838, Britain's Queen Victoria was a very frightened young woman. She was being relentlessly pursued by a strange teenager, Edward "the Boy" Jones, who had an uncanny ability to sneak into Buckingham Palace.
As a result of his multiple intrusions into Buckingham Palace, the Boy Jones became a media celebrity. His exploits were the subject of popular verse, songs, and prints and lewd newspaper speculation about what he had really seen in the young Queen's dressing room. Fearful that he might injure or even assassinate the Queen, or kidnap the Princess Royal, the government of Prime Minister Lord Melbourne wanted to get rid of the Boy Jones at all costs.
A collaboration with Fortean legend, and author, Jan Bondeson
The film is written by Calvin Campbell, narrated & voiced by Diarmid Mogg, and animated by Edie Morris. Directed by Calvin Campbell & Dennis Mohr
