...I could tell that Jean Seberg had "it." And thereby hangs a tale. I was an (unhappy) camper at Happy Woods day camp. The camp had no indoors facilities so when it rained, we were taken to a local community center and shown movies. Cartoons.
By the time Christina's father demands of her "How many men in that room have been your lover" I knew somebody had made a mistake. But apparently, whoever it was wasn't watching the movie.
So I saw the whole thing, and what sticks out is Jean Seberg, Jean Seberg and Jean Seberg. I recognized her because WOR's "Million Dollar Movie" showed "Saint Joan" sixteen times a week every now and then. She was luminous on the screen, her every word caressed your ears.
Finding her way through the "French style" in Paris, she unwittingly had an affair with (he turns out to be) a high school student. The adult themes were a little bit shocking to me at the time, but I never craved cartoons in the same way again.
This movie demands a video release.
