Nativity gets the “The” back — and more! May 17, 2006

My sources tell me that Catherine Hardwicke’s Nativity, formerly The Nativity, is now going by the name The Nativity Story.

This is beginning to remind me of how The Passion became The Passion of Christ before it became The Passion of the Christ

One of my colleagues says the new title makes the story sound “fictional”, but I can think of a few fact-based movies that have the word “story” in their titles, such as The Colditz Story (1955) and The Straight Story (1999). Can you think of any others?
