Quotes

La Hire: She's one of two things - either a charlatan, or a fool.
Joan of Arc: As for the first, I can't answer, as I don't know what the word means. If I am a fool, God as least has not held it against me.

Crazy Credits

In the 145-minute version of the film, the cast list, naming not only the actors but who they played, was deliberately presented in the style of the cast list of "Gone With the Wind", in order to evoke the feeling of an epic about to be presented. Victor Fleming, who directed "Joan of Arc", had also directed "Gone With the Wind" (after replacing George Cukor, "GWTW"'s original, uncredited director). See more »

Best Version Of All
8 June 2001 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Why? It was made in 1948, when it was still acceptable in America to have open/honest religious feeling in public, so the film's tone is not apologetic, as later versions are. Bergman is utterly immersed in her role and radiates "purity" above "sexiness", which modern film makers tend to emphasize to please the marketing people (among others). In 1948, "production" aspects of film (plot, characters, "significance" of story) were paramount; and marketing was secondary. The order is reversed today, sadly, so films sacrifice "significance" for "popularity" ...which dates the film quickly.
