 Feb. 19, 1957, Hedda hopper

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."

I fear Hedda Hopper got it all wrong again. Or, as usual. I personally always adored Jean Seberg, maybe because we grew up in small Iowa towns, separated by just a few miles and two years. She eventually became a very accomplished actor. However, in Saint Joan she was an embarrassment.
