Renée Falconetti (in the "The Passion of Joan of Arc" movie poster)


French stage and film actress, sometimes credited as Maria Falconetti, Marie Falconetti, Renée Maria Falconetti, or, simply, Falconetti, who was notable for her role as Joan of Arc in Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent film, "La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc." Falconetti was 35 years old when she played the role of 19-year-old Joan of Arc in "La Passion." Her portrayal is widely considered one of the most astonishing performances ever committed to film, and it would remain her final cinematic role.

After filming "Joan of Arc," Falconetti continued with her career as a producer of light stage comedies, appearing with the Comédie-Française. During the Second World War, she escaped from France first to Switzerland, and then left for Buenos Aires, Argentina. Falconetti had suffered from mental illness all her life, and on 12 December 1946 she committed suicide in Brazil.
