United States | 1971 | Don Siegel
The oddest and artiest of the five features that Clint Eastwood made with director Don Siegel (the next was Dirty Harry) is a Southern Gothic Civil War drama in which a wounded Union solider (Eastwood) takes refuge in an isolated all-girls boarding school in Mississippi. Locked and guarded in the music room while he recuperates, the young Yank ignites the sexual imaginations of the seminary’s prim young ladies and proceeds to seduce each of them. With Geraldine Page; based on the 1966 novel A Painted Devil by Cleveland author and playwright Thomas P. Cullinan (1919-1995). Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled opens later this month. Color print from the Universal Pictures studio archive! 105 min.
