The Road to En-Dor
The incredible true story of two WWI POWs who used amateur magic to convince their captors that they were in touch with the spirit world. Captured during World War I, Lieutenant E. H. Jones, a Welsh officer in the Indian Army, and Lieutenant C. W. Hill, an Australian serving in the R.A.F., were prisoners of war at the Yozgad prison camp in Turkey. Duty-bound as officers to attempt to escape, Jones sensed that what had previously been the harmless fun of fooling around with a homemade Ouija board could be turned into something much more productive.
The Road to En-dor was scripted for film in 2008 by Neil Gaiman and Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller). The film was never produced.
The Moberly–Jourdain incident (also the Ghosts of Petit Trianon or Versailles, French: les fantômes du Trianon / les fantômes de Versailles) is a claim of time travel and hauntings made by Charlotte Anne Moberly (1846–1937) and Eleanor Jourdain (1863–1924).
In 1911, Moberly and Jourdain published a book entitled An Adventure under the names of “Elizabeth Morison” and “Frances Lamont”. Their book describes a visit they made to the Petit Trianon, a small château in the grounds of the Palace of Versailles, where they claimed to have seen the gardens as they had been in the late eighteenth century, as well as ghosts, including Marie Antoinette and others. Their story caused a sensation and was subject to much ridicule.
