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.'
