A Very Kaufman Christmas Card

Merry Christmas

with love, the Kaufmans

Christmas 1987

Kaufman’s  controversial The  Nativity ushered in  a new era of  spiritual film noir.  A co-production with his beautiful wife, and staring their three children, The Nativity will forever be recognized for Kaufman’s attention to detail with realistic props and wardrobe.  Kaufmans’ utilized the family copper tub used to store logs for the fireplace for the baby manger, and the exquisite costumes were created from nightgowns, napkins, a pair of fairy wings.  But it was Kaufman’s minimalist approach to wardrobe which the academy ultimately recognized when they awarded him with an Oscar for the baby cherub’s costume.
