Resurrection (1912 film)

Resurrection is a lost 1912 silent drama short film directed by Joseph A. Golden, produced by Adolph Zukor and released by Famous Players Film Company.[1] It is based on the novel, Resurrection (Voskraeseniye) by Count Leo Tolstoy. It is the first original film Zukor ever produced in contrast to the famous Queen Elizabeth starring Sarah Bernhardt which was made in France and which he bought the U.S. distribution rights. Resurrection starred Blanche Walsh, a famous American stage star of the day, who had played in Resurrection on Broadway. This would be Walsh's only film as she died three years later. D. W. Griffith had filmed a version of this story back in 1909.[2] Versions of the story would later be made in 1918 with Pauline Frederick, 1927 with Dolores Del Rio and 1931 with Lupe Velez.
