    Full List of Adam and Eve Films

    On Sunday I started compiling a list of films featuring Adam and Eve. I've now had a chance to work through that previous list, and eliminate a few films which seem only tangentially linked to the biblical story. In some cases however there isn't really enough evidence to tell. I've also arranged them in ascending order of year. Here's the full list, 44 films in total:

    Adam & Eve [Vitagraph] (1912)

      Thanks Shawn,

      I'll add second time lucky in there. Not heard of that before.

      I'll leave the other two for now though. Adam and Eve Figure films are another whole can of worms that I don't quite have the time to get into!.

      Much appreciated.

      At the German Movie Das schwarze Schaf (1960) with Heinz Rühmann, there is a bad Theatre-Scence with Adam and Eve.
