Up in Smoke

As some of you know, I'm writing these poor words from the land of the Ignoble Frog (Excuse: Vacation. Needed rest.) And over the weekend, I found myself standing -- rather awestruck, I must say -- in the cathedral of Notre Dame at Reims, where every single king of France was crowned. Including the feckless Charles VII, who was assisted by none other than the legendary Maid of Orleans -- the one and only Joan of Arc herself.

However, since the next several days will doubtless find me engaged in somewhat less rarefied touristing -- i.e., hanging out at dimly lit bistros and indulging in too much elitist chardonnay -- I thought a little contest in Joan's honor might be just the thing.

So...the first reader who correctly identifies all four of the actresses (below) who played Jeanne D'Arc on the big screen -- AND the directors of the films they appeared in...

...will receive an autographed (by moi) 12.5 lb bag of Kingsford Match Light Charcoal Briquets.

Supplies and weather permitting.

And remember -- no Googling!!!!
