Hollywood presents Jesus Christ!
22 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hollywood Bowl presents a holiday production about Jesus Christ in his final days. The film was on my Holiday Family Classics with Santa Claus on the DVD box. Anyway the quality is not high perhaps because of age and it is in color too. The cast is largely unknown to me. I don't recognize any of their names. Still this film is better suited for Easter and Passover than Christmas. While the color is better than black and white for today's audiences, black and white would have been better suited to help preserve the film quality. Although I am surprised that the Hollywood Bowl would produce a biblical production but I shouldn't be. We never get many close-ups of the cast on screen to see them become the roles.
