This version's Abigaile gives the film more sympathy for McBurney than any bit of the Siegel picture. Excluding Eastwood's then-image, of course. Although, Siegel's gives a more grisly representation of the war. Surprised there's little talk about the film, but, even QT and Sofia didn't speak about it for more than 15 minutes, so perhaps it flits in and out as it exists within the seminary's fence, isolated.
