Storyline

John Trent, a World War I British officer, finds an ancient sword in his trench bunker just prior to volunteering for what will amount to a suicide mission the next day. That night he is visited by the spirit of Joan of Arc and is transported back to the 15th Century. Joan's career begins when, as a peasant girl, she meets Trent's ancestor, also an English soldier, fighting for the Burgundians. After Trent is captured, Joan is brought to the attention of the beleaguered Dauphin, heir to the French throne, who cannot be crowned because the English hold the royal city of Orleans. The weak Dauphin is impressed by her vision and apparently heaven-sent powers which border on the supernatural and ultimately gives her command of the armies. She is victorious at Orleans and the new King is crowned. Joan resists Trent's entreaties of love and continues her struggle to free the rest of her country from English occupation. Sinister forces, both English and French, conspire against her and she is... Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

A great piece of cinema for 1916
9 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

A great piece of film making for 1916. Joan the Woman was Cecil B DeMille's first epic film and I think one of his better ones. In 1916 epic was really in style with Intolerance and Birth of a Nation just being released. In this film Geraldine Farrar gets the leading role of Joan of Arc who acted superbly in this film, even though I thought physically does not look anything like her.

The battle scenes are really spectacular for this time. And de'mille really shows he knows how to handle a big scene with lots of people. The only down side to the movie is the lead is a little to old and heavy to be playing Joan though she makes up with great theatrical performance, and the heavy preaching which unfortunately mars De'Milles other epics. He just can't help it I guess. Overall a very good silent.

Grade B+
