By no means a typical Clint Eastwood movie this odd bordering on weird Civil War drama is worth viewing for the interesting collection of actresses assembled and its rather schizophrenic air of suppressed sexual hysteria. A definite mood piece that takes it's time getting were it going but not without interest or merit. Elizabeth Hartman didn't make many films but always had a distinctive presence, her intensity adds quite a bit to the overall tenor of this. Clint and the great Geraldine Page are an fascinating match although they apparently didn't hit it off too well behind the scenes leading to Miss Page's rather caustic quote "Yes I have acted with Clint Eastwood. Or rather, I have acted opposite Clint Eastwood."
