  • Watch "The Passion of Joan of Arc" (1928)

    For the definitive classic movie that tells the story of Joan of Arc you really need to watch "The Passion of Joan of Arc" (1928) . Carl Theodor Dreyer directed this silent movie masterpiece and I dare you to say your where not moved by the performance of Renee Falconetti portraying Joan of Arc. Her performance moved in a way that spoken words never would have as I felt her anguish and resolve in the face of her relentless inquisitors.

  • Jean *is* listed...

    ...just dead last, which is unusual considering she's the title character. Although some think Jean wasn't right as Joan, her look was perfect; almost elfin, angelic and 'pure'. Definitely lovely to look at. I'm looking forward to seeing this; though it's been called a misfire, everyone (writer, director, cast/crew) involved is splendid! It cannot be without merit. I'll post again after seeing this.

    HOW can TCM fail to mention JEAN SEBERG as the title Joan in the cast list???

  • Good Film

    Maybe Mr Widmark may have been miscast,but he was at least as good as John Malcovich (sorry if I misspelled your name,I love your acting!) in The Messenger.Richard Todd was great,as Miss Seberg,and Mr Gielgud.Look forward to it playing again to see it from the beginning.

  • Widmark miscast, but gets

    Otto Preminger directs this adaptation of G. B. Shaw play aboutSaint Joan of Arc of France. An excellent cast is assembledwith lovely Jean Seberg in the title role, along with Richard Todd,Felix Aylmer and the wonderful John Gielgud. Richard Widmarkputs down his gun and holster and plays the infantile Dauphin, later King of France, and gives his best effort, though dreadfully miscast in the role. It's a misfire but worth watching for thetalented ensemble.

  • Hugely underrated should-be classic

    • 5/31/09

    This movie is a should-be classic. It's not perfect, certainly. The pacing, while perfect for the stage, is in movie form slow as a tortoise with arthritic knees. Jean Seberg is misdirected to be too sweet and too gentle. She fully shows enough acting talent, skill, and craft to convincingly play the clever, passionate, and confident Joan, but, unfortunately, the director missed the point of the character. George Bernard Shaw is my favorite playwright. In no other play has his dialog been more sharp, nor the lines more musical. However, processing this film requires that you look at it as a lawyer. This movie is a case, and the viewer is the judge. That is how this picture is to be enjoyed. 7/10.
