The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ (1905) and From the Manger to the Cross (1912) are to sacred classics of the silent screen. Both pioneering films on this DVD depict well-known incidents in the life of Jesus Christ. In quite different ways, both were also ambitious milestones of the young, relatively untried cinema; both won world fame, huge audiences and a screen life of decades when most secular films of the time measured their commercial life in weeks. Region coded 0. Not rated. NTSC. Approx. 115 minutes.
