At the beginning of the film, explanatory text indicating the year 1420 accompanies a map of Europe displaying the two combatants, England and France, but neither is shown correctly.

The European release was 10 minutes longer than the US theatrical version, which omits, among others, the scene where Joan's virginity is tested before the court of King Charles VII. The longer version has been released in the USA on DVD.
