  • Notes

    • Otto Preminger regarded George Bernard Shaw's play as one of the great plays of the twentieth century, but noted that the title role was always played by an actress much older than the real Joan of Arc, who died at 19. He announced that he would find a real teenager to play the part in this film version, and interviewed well over a thousand girls before settling on the unknown Jean Seberg, of Marshalltown, Iowa. Although it was her serious ambition to become a professional actress, her only experience previously had been in school plays and amateur productions. However, she did become a film star and an acclaimed actress.
