It's certainly a very interesting bit of film history - the way the director wanted it to end (with the lynching) was extremely bleak and a firm message well ahead of what was the norm of the day. It was the studio that added on that scene with the main character being comforted by the fireplace.I don't remember that. I remember that they came after her and mutilated her and she became a 'part of the show'.
Very interesting film indeed.
