Post subject:  VINTAGE POSTCARDS FROM LA VIE ET PASSION 1907

From our friends at European Film Star Postcards---Easter special: La Vie et Passion de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ (1907)

Happy Easter! Films on the Passion of Christ, starting with the Annunciation and ending with the Resurrection, were extremely popular in the early years of cinema. No doubt the impetus was given by the already popular stage versions, in particular, the Oberammergau Passion Play, performed every decade at a small Bavarian town. Many cards were made for the Oberammergau Passion Play, already from the late 19th century onwards. This inspired first the Americans to create their own Passion Play films in the late 1890s. They were immediately followed by the French companies Lumière and Gaumont. While Gaumont shot another version in 1906, Pathé produced four versions in 1900, 1902-1903, 1907, and 1913.
