Jean Seberg in Saint Joan  (Otto Preminger, 1957), her first film role. She was chosen for the role after a nationwide talent search by Preminger. The film was not a critical or commercial success. “I was scared like a rabbit,” she said later, “and it showed on the screen. It was not a good experience at all.
