The picture that Brian Deacon is most famous for is the picture of Jesus on the cross staring at the camera. An early still of this shot has blood on Jesus face and nose and has Jesus (Deacon) look away from the camera. This still is rare as only a few hundred copies were made. The shot that was used for Warner Brothers and on the back of the 90's VHS release features the shot of Deacon staring at the camera but with no blood on his face. See more »

To write about such a delicate film as about Christ Himself in this age of an extreme political correctness is a tough task. This work appeals immensely to all the believers and works out fine to convert all the newcomers. To the non-believers, this work will seem dull and boring, but then, let's be straight - this is the most accurate, the most precise and elegant retelling of the Gospel According to Luke. Since I am a Protestant Christian myself, I must say that this film really did help me to understand who Jesus is and what He was doing among us the people on Earth. The play of Mr. Deacon is very good, he does an extremely difficult work and he does it well. I remember my eyes were wet with tears during the Crucifix scene, and then my heart leaped violently with joy during the final scenes. The film is very well done, by seeing the sandy dusty plains and hills of Israel, you feel the smell of age, you do believe in the truth of the plot and you do follow the film scene by scene. A very serious and thoughtful work.
