Trivia: The Passion of Joan of Arc

  • Enforced Method Acting: So much. As Roger Ebert put it:
    "For Falconetti, the performance was an ordeal. Legends from the set tell of Dreyer forcing her to kneel painfully on stone and then wipe all expression from her face—so that the viewer would read suppressed or inner pain. He filmed the same shots again and again, hoping that in the editing room he could find exactly the right nuance in her facial expression."
  • Missing Episode: Very narrowly averted.
