Nails through the wrists

I was commenting yesterday on the question of nailing through the wrists or the palms in crucifixion. Matthew Page comments that he thinks the first film to show nails going through the wrists was Jesus (1979) and that since then Jesus films have nearly all shown them going through the wrists, although there is one that shows them going through both the psalm and the wrists!

I also began to have a sense of deja-vu about this and looked in Paleojudaica's archive to see this pretty well covered in posts on July 19 2003, August 8 2003 and August 30 2003. And I notice that I commented on September 28 2003.
