La Pucelle 11
9 February 2006 | by Zaffachaud99See all my reviews

My only major problem with Parts 1 and 2 of La Pucelle is that, historically, the guy who was the eminence gris and string-puller in the fight against La Pucelle and her final capture and trial is not in the movie. That guy is John of Lancaster the Duke of Bedford who was Regent of France at the time. Warwick,who is in the movie, was his puppet and enabled him to stay in the background while the worst things were perpetrated against La Pucelle inside and outside the courtroom.He is on record as regarding her as "the limb of the fiend" that is the devil's body part the worst calumny you could hurl at somebody in those days. Why Bedford was omitted from the movie and replaced by a stooge just beggars belief despite the fact that this was a French movie.It's like Hamlet without the Prince.Credit to a later movie 'Joan of Arc -The Messenger' that Bedford is nailed for his leading part.Clearly the definitive movie on La Pucelle remains to be made,although I consider that ,despite that strategic omission, La Pucelle remains a great movie and worth seeing.
