    Looking at film interpretations of the stories in the Bible - past, present and future, as well as preparation for a future work on Straub/Huillet's Moses und Aron and a few bits and pieces on biblical studies.

    Living Christ/Bible Films

    I've been trying to find some information on "Cathedral Films" in general and the Living Christ/Living Bible series in particular.

    IMDB lists the production date for this series as 1951. It also seems that there were two series made about the same time with similar names.

    1 - The Living Christ series which was made about 1951, and starring Robert Wilson, 12x30 minute episodes discussed below.

    2 - The Living Bible Series was made about 1952 (so unrelated to the paraphrase of the bible), and seems to star Nelson Leigh, 24 or 26 episodes. Some of these are available on DVD.

    I've found this interview which relates to the casting of "Bob" Wilson in I Beheld His Glory. This may indicate that this film was shot before the series and that Day of Triumph was shot after it. There are plenty of details on this page which includes a few pictures from a number of other films including From the Manger to the Cross


    N.B. - This post was back-dated to when much of it was first noted down in a discussion at the Arts and Faith discussion forum
