to:

* TooDumbToLive: Mayor Polk. The only reason Cane didn't kill him earlier in the film was because somebody was around to bail him out every time, and he continues to stay a sitting duck right up until he's finally killed.
-->'''Mayor Polk:''' I figured if [a jail cell] could keep a killer in, it could keep a killer out.
-->'''Tom Servo:''' Well he could ''shoot'' ya!

The gunman, Caine Miro, hits it off with Rose soon after arriving in town, and begins trying to stretch the terms of his contract to avoid killing her. However, he has an old [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]] grudge against the town's mayor, and Rose finds her hands full trying to keep the man alive and Cain out of trouble. Can Rose stop Erica's plan? Will Rose redeem Cane before it's too late?

* AuthorAppeal: Creator/RogerCorman loves strong female protagonists, and regular castmember Beverly Garland continued to fill that role.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Caine puts a ''lot'' of importance on the Battle of Lookout Mountain in his vendetta against the mayor, claiming that losing that battle lost the whole war. The actual battle was a relatively minor engagement in 1863, ''two full years'' before the end of the war, and ''after'' the decisive Union victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg. The engagement didn't even involve the entirety of the armies on both sides, and was fought solely between Hooker's Union XI corps, and three Confederate brigades under Stevenson. Of course, it could be more because he lost his brothers there and blames Polk for it, but uses that idea as an excuse.

* GambitRoulette: Erica's real estate scheme amounts to gambling. She's buying up land in the hopes that a railroad being built through town will make her rich but there's no indication that she has insider knowledge (and if she does, its obviously bad information) and there's no indication that she's trying to sway or fix the results. She's simply betting on a possible outcome.
