From the Manger to the Cross Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

During its brief but colorful history, the pioneering Kalem company turned out a number of box-office successes. Foremost among these was From the Manger to the Cross, a tableaulike reenactment of the Passion Play. Robert Henderson-Bland played Jesus, while Gene Gaunthier and Jack Clark were seen as Mary and Joseph. Though the costumes were sometimes anachronistic, the film's overall authenticity was heightened by the expensive decision to lens the picture on location in The Holy Land. Made during Easter week of 1912, From the Manger to the Cross was still being exhibited by religious groups well into the late 1930s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
