The Beguiled (1971) Poster


Elizabeth Hartman: Edwina



  • Edwina : I can't emphasize enough that French is a smilin' language.

  • Edwina : Abigail, you're not paying attention.

    Abigail : I'm sorry, Miss Edwina. But the war is standin' so close. Doris says if the Yankees win, they'll rape every one of us!

  • Abigail : Miss Edwina, aren't you afraid of that bluebelly?

    Edwina : No. Its bad manners to call him a bluebelly. He has a name. Corporal John McBurney.

  • Carol : You must be tired, wouldn't you like a chance to go to your closet? I might sponge parts of him you wouldn't.

    Edwina : [slaps Carol]  I knew what you were the minute you came to this school. A hussy is a hussy! You come in here again and you'll find your face in a bucket of water.

  • Edwina : Oh. Oh, no. Johnny, no. Oh.

  • Edwina : Oh. Oh, I can't. Not like this. Not without being sure. Maybe, maybe when the war's over. Its just that I never have before. Don't be angry.

  • Abigail : Why were we all scared of our own soldiers?

    Edwina : All armies have some men who aren't nice.
