After reading the thread regarding the marriage of McBain and Jill, I remembered that there's a scene I don't understand or at least an aspect of it seems very unclear to me:

I always wondered about Jill's rolling around with Frank in the cave.

she becomes very compliant, even eager and it never sat right with me, didnt make sense.
I always thought it was probably just to "save her own skin" as Frank puts it. But she doesnt put up much struggle and she even smiles to herself when he's undressing her.

Surely with her back turned to him at this point she would at least take the opportunity to show her displeasure or something? If there is any!!!

I don't know.
Have I missed something??

Is this a good time to bring up the film's gay subtext? Evil

I agree, it always seemed strange to me too: in the beginning, I think she seems sort of hesitant and scared; but later on, she seems to be as "into" it as Frank. (hey, maybe this proves my theory that she was only after Brett for his money  Wink)
