Feb. 19, 1957: Hedda Hopper says, “Dick Widmark, back from England after locationing for 'Saint Joan,' in which he played the Dauphin, says, 'We had bad weather throughout the entire stay. I took a flat when I first went there but moved into the Hotel Connaught after two weeks -- it was too dreary being alone.' Dick says Jean Seberg, newcomer who plays Saint Joan, is amazing. 'She has composure, poise and confidence. Otto Preminger surrounded her with top actors and she worked with them like a veteran."
