Joan the Woman

Synopsis: John Trent, a World War I British officer, finds an ancient sword in his trench bunker just prior to volunteering for what will amount to a suicide mission the next day. That night he is visited by the spirit of Joan of Arc and is transported back to the 15th Century. Joan's career begins when, as a peasant girl, she meets Trent's ancestor, also an English soldier, fighting for the Burgundians. After Trent is captured, Joan is brought to the attention of the beleaguered Dauphin, heir to the French throne, who cannot be crowned because the English hold the royal city of Orleans. The weak Dauphin is impressed by her vision and apparently heaven-sent powers which border on the supernatural and ultimately gives her command of the armies. She is victorious at Orleans and the new King is crowned. Joan resists Trent's entreaties of love and continues her struggle to free the rest of her country from English occupation. Sinister forces, both English and French, conspire against her and she is

Based on the life of Joan of

Arc, the patriot who fought

with men, She was loved by

men and murdered by them.

For seventy years the French were

from defeat to defeat; Until,

in 1429, France was going to

become an English province.

To Charles VII, King of France, abandoned

by his most powerful nobles, his

cousin opposed Duke of Burgundy, whose

wealth and soldiers were with England.

Even Paris was in English hands;

Carlos, the weak king, reigned

in a court petty and indebted,

without honor or crown.

At that time, when the soul of

France died slowly, he lived in the

village of Domremy a simple peasant,

the daughter of Jacques d'Arc.

Her name was Juana, a robust

girl of the countryside

whose life was to work

at home or in the field.


She gave everything for France,

and her reward was martyrdom.

Joan of Arc has not died. She

never will die, and in war on

lands that She loved so much,

her spirit struggles today.

1916 An English trench

somewhere in France.

I wonder what weird guy would take this

sword to battle in those old days!

We want a volunteer to try the destruction

of the Enemy Trench No. 2 with this bomb.

I do not want an answer

until midnight. Think

about it, then the man who

goes will not return.


The time has come to atone for the

sin you committed against me.

IN THE PAS The petty Court of Carlos,

legitimate King of France.

Sir, the butcher denies more

partridges until he is paid.

THE DESER Why should not I defect when the King

himself prepares for flee France!

No sword drawn by

France will be thrown!

Fearing that people could defend their

king, England and Burgundy employed.

"La Araa" to pamper and amuse Carlos,

while his armies besieged Orleans.

I have come from afar to promise

my love, Lord, and my purse.

Sir, my castle in Chinon

awaits your Real Presence.

Eric Trent, looking for

cattle to the Duke of

Burgundy, makes a raid in

the village of Domremy.

Flee! The Burgundians are coming!

One of us must stay and

talk with them, so

the others can look for

hiding in the woods.

English, I beg you, in the

name of God, to turn back!

What are you going to do with me, English?

Return to the camp with the booty.

I will follow you later.

Now, English, will you go?

Go tell our men to come back.

Your daughter, Juana, is safe.

I hid it in the

attic and I defeated

them overwhelmingly.

When the daisies bloom.

I'll call this daisy like the sweetest girl

I know, and I I will ask if he loves me.

Loves Me!

Tell the English to leave,

or I'll say everyone

you have hidden from

a enemy of France.

Get ready, Joan, to save

France and the King.

What ails you, Juana; Go

do some of your work!

Knowing that his parents would

fail her mission, Juana

secretly prepares to obey the

order of their "voices".

Uncle Laxart, will you

face the anger of my

father... and you will

take me to the Governor?



My Lord Governor, I have

come to you because

it is God's desire that

send me to the King!

If you come from God, tell me

what answer I would give to this!

You have convinced me and I

will send you with the King.

Carlos, trapped in the golden web

of "La Araa", is idle in Chinon.

Sir, our soldiers desert to

the camp of the Burgundians,

because We can not dress

them or feed them.

I'm sorry, Lord, that my money

can not cover certain needs.

The King at last.

I bring you from the

Governor a peasant maid who

claims to have been sent by

God to lead the soldiers.
