The REAL acting tragedy is by Richard Widmark as the Dauphin...Surely meant to be a child-like innocent, Widmark plays his role as a feral court jester. Preminger, noted for NOT bullying movie stars, really mis-step by not reeling in Widmark.
For a film about Joan of Arc, there was hardly any fire or spirit in the telling. Embarrassingly didactic at times - Preminger's so caught up about speaking to and about 1957, he completely forgets the importance of 1429.
