Probably the best collaboration between Siegel and Eastwood.

This doesn't make it on the cable networks often. 

But apparently there is a re-make due out soon, with Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning.

Looks like they tried to use similar colors to the original film as well.

BTW, all of us who have seen the 1971 version know the story anyway, but for thise who haven't, this trailer spoils everything, doesn't it?

Only that films are not really about stories, but how they are told. And when Sofia Coppola males such a film it will be very different from that what a director like Siegel does with such a stuff. And frankly said, Siegel was a talented director, but this kind of film was not his thing. The Beguiled is an interesting movie, and an important step in Eastwood's career, but is is not a great film.

But then, Coppola, who prefers making films about people caught in a certain situation, so this it the kind of stuff she likes, is probably also artistically caught (or already lost) in her preferences, without being able to make another Lost in Translation, and maybe should try to make something very different from what she usually does.
