This is a 29" x 43" Argentine one-sheet poster for the 1948 Victor
Fleming film Joan of Arc based on the Broadway play Joan of
Lorraine by Maxwell Anderson, screenplay by Maxwell Anderson and
Andrew Solt and starring Ingrid Bergman as Joan of Arc. This film was
considered by some to be the beginning of a low period in Bergman's
career partly because of negative publicity surrounding an affair she
was having at the time with Italian director Roberto Rossellini,
although both she and Jose Ferrer (who played the role of Charles VII)
received academy award nominations and the film has become an enduring
classic. This poster was made to promote the first release by RKO in
November 1948 but the film has undergone many revisions since them.
The 2004 DVD release is the restored complete version. Plot summary:
The film gives a straightforward account of the life Joan of Arc, an
18-year-old illiterate farm girl who in the 15th Century told the
court of France she had been divinely called to save the country by
leading the French army taking Orleans back from the English; Joan was
eventually burned at the stake in Rouen by the English and the
Burgundians on charges of witchcraft, heresy and dressing like a man.
