Quotes from

Joan of Arc: You see there is no strength in me, and no strength in my hands. There is no strength in any of our hands great enough to win against the English. Our strength is in our faith. And if our faith is eaten away by little things that God hates, then, though there be a million of us, we should be beaten back and die.


Joan of Arc: Oh sweet God, forgive me - forgive me! I was afraid. What I said was for fear of the fire. I have damned my soul to save my life.
[She weeps, but then, overjoyed, hears something we cannot]
Joan of Arc: You speak to me! And I denied you.


Joan of Arc: But if I had a hundred fathers and a hundred mothers, I could not go back. I must go forward now.
Isabelle d'Arc: Then tell me where, Jeanette, towards what would you go?

Facts about

The company that produced this film was not the same Sierra Pictures that had produced silent films. It was an all-new company formed by Walter Wanger, Victor Fleming and Ingrid Bergman. The company produced no more films after this one.
The film was not really a commercial success upon release, but only partly due to RKO's poor publicity campaign (which producer Walter Wanger blamed on then-RKO president Howard Hughes). Audiences stayed away from the film when Ingrid Bergman's affair with director Roberto Rossellini was revealed while the movie was in release, because they considered it blasphemous for an adulterous woman to be playing a saint.
The first film to receive 7 Academy Award nominations without receiving a Best Picture nomination.
