Triple Feature paper

HI 231    Hollywood History

May 2010 Lindgren






For this paper, you will analyze and discuss the three films about Joan of Arc.  What message does the director of each film seem to be sending about Joan and the events and impact of her life?  How do their interpretations of her motivations, spirituality, and actions vary?  Be sure to include in your discussion an analysis of the authenticity of each film, and take into account such scholarship as would be helpful in thinking about these issues (the George Custen, Natalie Zemon Davis, Edward Benson, Anke Bernau and relevant Nickolas Haydock articles come to mind).





The paper should be 3-4 pages, double spaced with one-inch margins, with footnotes and bibliography in Turabian style.




Due at 8 am on Thursday May 27.
