Overview

The Beguiled is a Freudian mood piece from the team of actor Clint Eastwood and director Don Siegel. Eastwood plays Corp. John McBurney, a wounded Union soldier during the Civil War, who takes refuge in a prim-and-proper Southern girl's school run by Martha Farnsworth (Geraldine Page). Chauvinistic, insensitive and conceited, McBurney takes full advantage of the women by bedding each successively -- and then learns the true meaning of "a woman scorned."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
One of the few interesting attempts to mix the Western and horror genres, this Civil War Gothic was directed by action specialist Don Siegel (Dirty Harry). Clint Eastwood stars as a wounded Yankee soldier who seeks refuge in an all-girl's school in the South. The tension gets pretty thick as the girls want him to stay as their sex-toy, and headmistress Geraldine Page hacks off his leg in a gruesome amputation sequence. It's not a typical Eastwood movie, but fans of atmospheric chills should seek it out. Pamelyn Ferdin is one of the girls, and went on to play Eastwood's role as helpless prisoner in the infamous Toolbox Murders.
