MOVIEDROME: THE BEGUILED
9.50pm BBC2 Living up to its title, The Beguiled, directed by the late, great Don Siegel (who died last month), stars Clint Eastwood (below, with Geraldine Page) as a Union deserter who takes refuge in a remote girl's school and is kidnapped by the Confederate belles. The 1970 film launches a fourth season of Moviedrome, which is again introduced by Alex Cox, the director and cult film lover (see feature p38), whose verdict is: 'Not what you would expect from the Dirty Harry partners. A mad, gothic melodrama of sexual frenzy and revenge in a decaying Southern mansion populated entirely by women. Unimaginable mayhem ensues. Very strange.'
Premiered at the Market
Theatre, Johannesburg in 1987, the spectacular black musical Sarafina transferred to Broadway, was a smash hit, and is currently enjoying a successful run at London's
Hackney Empire. This documentary intersperses excerpts from the New York production with the stark comments of the young South African cast about their troubled homeland. They talk of the sorrow of apartheid, and of their hopes for the future. The film closes with an emotional meeting with the great, once exiled singer, Miriam Makeba.
