Shaw himself drafted a screenplay for Saint Joan in the 1930s, but no movie was made of it, owing to pressure from the Catholic Church. Shaw's screenplay, edited by Bernard F. Dukore, was published in 1968 by the University of Washington Press.

A movie version of the play was later made based on a screenplay by Graham Greene. Directed by Otto Preminger, this 1957 version starred Jean Seberg as Joan, Richard Widmark as the Dauphin, Richard Todd as Dunois, Anton Walbrook as Cauchon, and John Gielgud as Warwick.

There was also a television version of the play in 1967, starring Genevieve Bujold as Joan and Roddy McDowall as the Dauphin.

The Media Resources Center at the University of California at Berkeley lists a version of the play read by Siobhan McKenna as Saint Joan.
