Ernesto "Che" Guevara

The photo was taken by photographer Freddy Alborta on October 10, 1967 in Vallegrande, Bolivia. Entitled "The passion of the Che”, this photo displays the corpse of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara one day after his execution. His body was put on display to the world's press to prove that in fact he had been captured and killed by Bolivian rangers with assistance from the CIA.

I wonder if that's what inspired Mel Gibson to name his movie "The Passion of the Christ"?
