Trivia

Though he was born in Puerto Rico and of Spanish ancestry, José Ferrer plays a French character in this film. He would go on to play many more: Athos in The Fifth Musketeer (1979), Alfred Dreyfus in I Accuse! (1958), and, most famously, the title role in Cyrano de Bergerac (1950). See more »

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 »

Alternate Versions

The cut version of the film reduced many of the supporting actors' roles (notably those of Hurd Hatfield and Jeff Corey) to mere walk-ons, with all of their dialogue gone. Hatfield, especially, was practically edited out of the shorter version, so that viewers who have seen only the 100-minute cut of the film, and knew that he was in it, were left wondering if he really appeared in the movie at all. Both of Robert Barrat's dialogue scenes were also cut, despite the fact that he plays Joan's father, a rather important role. Dialogue belonging to Joan's mother (Selena Royle), however, was retained in the edited version. See more »

Bergman's performance excellent, film good
7 November 1999 | by Leia-23See all my reviews

Joan of Arc is perhaps Bergman's finest "high acting" performances. (Her greatest performance is still her "minimalist" performance in "Casablanca"). This is a better than good movie, but not great. With the cast, it should have been GREAT! It is, however, well worth seeing; Bergman is in fine form.
