Watch The Beguiled - Alternative Versions.
"The Beguiled" is one of my favorite Clint Eastwood films, and a
departure from his typical early roles. Directed by Don Siegel, with
whom Eastwood collaborated on several films, it was made a year before
Eastwood's directorial debut with "Play Misty For Me". An alternate
title considered for the film was "Pussy-Footing Down At The Old
Plantation", which thankfully was not used, otherwise I am sure raunchy
jokes about the fact that it takes place at a girls' school would be
difficult to avoid. I first saw this movie in one of my college film
classes in the mid-1970's, and was immediately taken with it. I only
had an old battered VHS tape of it until I recently purchased the
widescreen DVD, which also includes the hilarious, awful trailer that
makes the film come across as a "Peyton Place" soap opera, and conveys
none of the creepiness of the film.
Interesting notes: Eastwood and Siegel had to battle with Universal
Pictures to keep the original ending, and they won out; and, the film
was billed as a standard Eastwood western, which it certainly is not.
It is a Gothic tale of deception and horror set in the time of the
Civil War, with an underlying tone of eroticism and sexual tension
I'm not putting any spoilers in this review, and if you want to see the
film as it should be seen, then be careful of looking it up on the
internet, as spoiler reviews of it do abound.
Clint Eastwood portrays John McBurney, a Union soldier who is shot on
Confederate ground and discovered by a young girl from a nearby girls'
school. She rescues him and takes him back to the school, but instead
of notifying the local patrol of his presence so that he will be taken
to prison, the headmistress, Miss Martha (Geraldine Page), her
assistant Edwina (Elizabeth Hartman), their black servant Hallie (Mae
Mercer), and the mostly teenage girls take him in, heal him, and fall
under his spell. The film sets its tone of creepiness and Gothic horror
right from the titles, as it shows real battleground shots from the
war, while Eastwood's voice is heard quietly singing a funereal song of
The opening scene of his encounter with the little girl who saves him
sets the tone of his character, and the tone of the entire movie. To
say any more than that would spoil the surprises in that first scene.
To say much more about the film itself might ruin it for anyone who
hasn't seen it...if you are into creepy, Gothic tales, find it and rent
it. Eastwood is excellent in the film, and it is interesting to see him
in an early role, or any role, where he portrays a character that is
for the most part very unsympathetic.
Geraldine Page had a plum role in the film as the headmistress, and I
cannot imagine another actress of the time being as good in the role; a
long shot could have been Piper Laurie, but I don't think Laurie could
have embodied the role in the same manner as Geraldine Page.
Elizabeth Hartman (whose wonderful performance in the film "A Patch of
Blue" as a blind girl who falls in love with Sidney Poiter's character
is another high point in her short career) is at her prime here,
delicate and masterful at the same time. Unfortunately, her delicacy on
film was also a part of her real life; she committed suicide at age 45.
I end this review with this observation: one manipulative, lying Yankee
man is no match for a houseful of deceptive and libidinous Southern
