This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet poster for the original 1979 John
Krish and Peter Sykes film Jesus AKA The Jesus Film
based primarily on the Biblical Gospel of Luke with screenplay by
Barnet Bain and starring Brian Deacon as Jesus. Synopsis: According
to Wikipedia, the Gospel of Luke was chosen for this film because it
is considered the most complete of the Biblical gospels, and an early
decision was made by the film's producers that the film would be based
on only one gospel. The film's storyline closely follows the version
of Luke found in The Good News Bible and makes a point of not
adding embellishments, although cinematic smoke and mirrors such as
the use of echo effects during important spoken segments and various
halos and hazes at strategic moments are apparently OK. There is also
a concluding exhortation and invitation to convert that does not come
from the book of Luke. The film was made in various parts of the
Middle East using Israeli actors. Producer John Heyman dubbed over
all the actor voices except the voice of Brian Deacon because he
thought they were too high. The Warner Brothers 1979 commercial
release promoted by this poster lost $2 million and was seen as
unimaginative by critics, but since then the film has become a staple
in the evangelical toolbox; its promoters claim it has become the most
watched film of all time. It has been translated into 1100 languages
and still receives wide international distribution on DVD through
Internet sales and missionary work, sponsored by Bill Bright's Jesus
Film Project. For more information see
