Quotes from

Joan of Arc: I see it so clearly now - my "victory" is my martyrdom. My "escape" - my death.


The Dauphin: The truth is Joan, I'm not the sort of person God will be very likely to be interested in. Truly I'm not. No, I'm no worse than the others here probably, but God bothers very little with any of us, if you should ask me. Now, I've been honest with you; be honest with me. What is it you want? Money? Lands? Presents? I'm a poor man, in spite of being...
Joan of Arc: It is not true that God takes no interest in you. You say that to hide yourself from me, as you hid just now among the women - but God will find you out, and make you king.


Joan of Arc: I think I have courage to die, but not to die thus in small sick ways.

Facts about

Ingrid Bergman and Stephen Roberts are the only actors from the play "Joan of Lorraine", on which this film is based, to repeat their roles in the film.
According to some biographies of Ingrid Bergman, Howard Hughes saved her from possible injury during a visit to the set when she fell off her horse. He caught her, but rather awkwardly, with one hand firmly on her crotch. Hughes made sure no photographs of the incident were taken (or survived).
To promote the film Joan of Arc, the studio placed an eight-story-high figure of her in white plastic armor in New York City's Times Square, at a cost of $75,000.
