Storyline

An account of the life of Jesus Christ, based on the books of the New Testament: After Jesus' birth is foretold to his parents, he is born in Bethlehem, and is visited by shepherds and wise men. After a stay in Egypt to avoid King Herod, his family settles in Nazareth. After years of preparation, Jesus gathers together a group of disciples, and then begins to speak publicly and to perform miracles, inspiring hope in many of his listeners, but also arousing some dangerous opposition.

Static Passion
12 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

"From the Manger to the Cross" is noteworthy for being an early feature-length film. Otherwise, it's a static passion play. Read the Bible if you want some craft or entertainment. Even the 1903 Pathé "The Life and Passion of Christ" was better made (and almost as long). The film is stagy; the camera is stationary, the continuity is in the tableau vivant style. There's nothing special about the acting. Although it was filmed on location in Egypt and Palestine, director Sidney Olcott and cinematographer George K. Hollister lacked the knowledge to take much advantage of it. There's the Sphinx and the Pyramids, but that's about it. Some interesting short films had already been made by 1912, but it'd be a few years before DeMille, Griffith, Tourneur and others made worthwhile American feature-length films.
