Plot: Victor Fleming proved his skill with massive crowd scenes in both GONE WITH THE WIND and THE WIZARD OF OZ, so the impeccable battle sequences in JOAN OF ARC come as no surprise. The real piece de resistance is Ingrid Bergman’s stirring performance as the young Joan, who hears voices from nowhere instructing her to aid France in driving out the British. Joan travels to the court of the dauphin, Charles VII (José Ferrer), where she passes a tricky test to persuade the dauphin of her authenticity. Placed at the head of the French army, Joan’s courage and brilliant military tactics lead to victory after victory, but soon the dauphin fears Joan’s enormous popularity and sells her out. Captured by the British, Joan stands trial for heresy and is sentenced to death at the stake. Many years after her martyrdom, the Catholic church would make Joan a saint. Beautifully written and wonderfully performed, Victor Fleming’s last film is a spiritual adventure.
