Joan of Arc

Is my favorite film (1928).  I just wanted to record quickly some thoughts.

Libretto made for the silent film in the 1980s: http://www.richardeinhorn.com/vol/vol.libretto.pdf

Why did Joan of Arc suddenly become sainted in the early 20th century?  Surely this was a political move by the Catholic church.

The Arcade Fire just released a song about her on their most recent album, Reflektor.
This deserves a full post.  To be written later.
