Description:

Vintage US one sheet poster for the 1933 sound reissue of the 1928 French film, a 61-minute cut of the film featuring narration by radio star David Ross and no intertitles.One of the most significant films in cinema history, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer, depicting the trial of Joan of Arc. The film was shot on one huge concrete set modeled on medieval architecture in order to realistically portray the Rouen prison where Joan was held. The film is known for its cinematography and use of close-ups. Dreyer also didn't allow the actors to wear make-up and used lighting designs that made the actors look more grotesque. "The Passion of Joan of Arc" was actress Maria Falconetti's only leading role, and her studious dedication to the character forever influenced cinematic acting. Set in England, shot on location in France. 28 x 40 inches (71 x 102 cm). Very Good. Moderate chipping to the margins, torn on the top, and repaired to the verso. A light dampstain to the front right margin. [Still] A beautiful, bright poster.Criterion Collection 62. Ebert I. Godard, Histoires du cinema. Rosenbaum 1000. Bookseller Inventory #
