Movie Summary

An all-star cast brings the dramatic story of Joan of Arc to the big screen. A French teenage girl is inspired by divine intervention to lead the King's armies to victory. However, jealous rivals turn her devout belief and miraculous accomplishments against her, sentencing her to be burned at the stake for heresy and setting the stage for her sainthood. Based upon the play by George Bernard Shaw and adapted for the screen by Oscar-nominee Graham Greene ("The Fallen Idol"). Starring Oscar-nominees and Golden Globe-winners Richard Widmark ("Kiss of Death") and Richard Todd ("The Hasty Heart") and Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Sir John Gielgud ("Arthur," "War and Remembrance"). Marks the feature premiere of Jean Seberg ("Airport"). Directed by legendary Oscar-nominee Otto Preminger ("Laura").moreless
