WW1 film about the crucified soldier.
13 December 2002 | by (Great Britain) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film, but I think I know about it. A still image of

the film appeared in a documentary of a Canadian soldier being

'crucified' to a barn with bayonets by German soldiers.

The film itself is one of the famous 'lost' films of the era, as, like

many films of the time, have dissapeared from film archives.

The film is based on the reportedly true events of a Canadian

soldier fighting in WW1 in Holland, I think.

The story may or may not have been true, or perhaps half true. but

the story of the crucified soldier spread amongst the Canadian

and British army trenches and reached both homelands, causing

outrage, and causing this film to be made. The image of the

crucified soldier became a powerful propaganda picture against

the Germans.
