Liked this one except for two things: The Cauchon character was a bit 2-dimensional. And the curé narrating the story said he gave Jean absolution. How could this be, if he is the one who is torturing Jean? Good acting, though. Amanda Plummer is wonderful as Jean. Four stars.

. This is one of the best stories that G. Frederick Lewis wrote for CBSRMT. It's Joan of Arc living in WWII, only she goes by the name of Jeanne (played by Amanda Plummer) and faces an enemy by the name of Pierre Cauchon (played by Norman Rose). In Joan's time, he was named as Bishop Cauchon who accused her being a witch. In this WWII tale, he accuses the girl for being a spy. What I liked the most was the acting of Amanda Plummer for playing the heroine and Norman Rose for playing a villain who had a lust for being closed-minded rather than being open-minded. Earl Hammond as Hans was good as well. What was I object to was the music & sound effects. There wasn't enough sounds of explosions/battle cries to make it feel like we're in the middle of a war. As for music, they had saintly tunes to make Jeanne sound faithful, but not enough of it. If they added music of agony from Ep. #0167-THE BLACK ROOM or music of despair from Ep. #0476-THE SERPENT OF THE NILE, this would've been epic. But let's not forget our host, E.G. Marshall, for adding suspense in this mystery tale. If you're a fan of Joan of Arc, this is one episode you'll admire. I seem to have this vivid memory of Amanda Plummer from pulp fiction!
