She died at 19. Five hundred years later, her legend still lives. A movie which lends a voice to the story of Joan of Arc. She was a special young girl at a tumultuous time in her country's history.

Possessed with a relentless drive to succeed, actress Jeanne Eagels (Kim Novak) pesters producer Sal Satori (Jeff Chandler) for more substantial roles before her voice coach, Nellie Neilson (Agnes Moorehead), helps her land a spot in a Broadway chorus line that catapults her to stardom. When aging actress Elsie Desmond asks her for help in reviving her career, Jeanne's selfishness drives the fading star to suicide. Yet, after Jeanne becomes involved in a highly publicized affair with John Donahue (Charles Drake), the strain brought on by the collapse of the ill-fated union jeopardizes her career, too. And despite Sal's best efforts, it is a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol that finally leaves Jeanne Eagels to die sad and alone.
Kim Novak beautifully portrays Jeanne Eagels, the celebrated Broadway actress who in 1922 made her name playing Sadie Thompson in Somerset Maugham's "Rain." Jeff Chandler plays her lusty love interest.
Filmed on location in a beautiful seaside village, Carousel stars Gordon MacRae as Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carny man who falls in love with a millworker (Shirley Jones). Tragedy strikes these star-crossed lovers, though, and their journey is not easy. How Billy makes his way to Heaven and back again, providing love and solace to his wife and daughter, and redemption for himself, is the story of one of the most unique and powerfully uplifting musicals ever written. With a score that includes "If I Loved You" and "You'll Never Walk Alone," little wonder that Carousel was composer Richard Rodgers' personal favorite.
