* PetTheDog: When he hears Miller's train is coming, one of the first things Kane does is warn Helen (Miller's ex) so she can get to safety, even though they don't get along. Likewise during the climax when a barn is set on fire, Kane drops everything to unhook the horses so they can escape.

Fred Zinnemann's ''High Noon'' (1952) is one of the most famous [[TheWestern Western]] films ever released, despite the fact that it [[AvertedTrope averts]] or [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] many of the genre's tropes; in some ways it's a gentle {{deconstruction}} of the Western, depicting a hero mired in moral complexities, rather than the simple black-and-white of the traditional Western.

* PunchClockHero: Kane's job as marshal is unglamorous and he openly admits that he doesn't like having to face Miller and his gang, but he does it anyway because it's his responsibility.



* TheStoic: Will. At least, until the moment when he [[NotSoStoic buries his head in his arms]], [[ManlyTears close to tears]].
