Joan of Arc ★★½ 1948

A touching and devout look at the life of Joan of Arc. Perhaps unfortunately, the film is accurately based on the play by Maxwell Anderson, and adds up to too much talk and too little action. 100m/C VHS, DVD . Ingrid Bergman, Jose Ferrer, John Ireland, Leif Erickson; D: Victor Fleming; C: Joseph Valentine. Oscars ‘48: Color Cinematog., Costume Des. (C).
