James Agee TIME Magazine Joan is more melodrama than tragedy. But Director Robert Stevenson knows how to curl the hair: he moves his camera with breath-holding suspense through the Gestapo shadows of occupied Paris.

ashley h Joan of Paris is a fantastic film. It is about an RAF squadron that is brought down over occupied France. Michele Morgan and Paul Henreid give awesome performances. The screenplay is a good but a little slow in places. Robert Stevenson did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and romance. Joan of Paris is a must see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member ok WWII drama made during WWII Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Powerful World War II propaganda film, wonderfully acted by all, Thomas Mitchell gives a sincere performance, Paul Henreid is great, Michele Morgan is charming, Alan Ladd is great in a small role. May Robson is outstanding, great performance. Excellent and moving score. The cinematography is dark and shadowy, perfectly suited to the film.
