* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Eastwood said in interviews that the original script identified the Stranger as the dead marshal's brother, but he deliberately played it ambiguously. One interpretation says the Stranger is the ghost of the marshal, while another says he's some sort of avenging angel (or demon). The film itself never gives a definitive answer.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Eastwood said in interviews that the original script explicitly identified the Stranger as the dead marshal's brother, but he deliberately played it ambiguously. One interpretation says the Stranger is the ghost of the marshal, while another says he's some sort of avenging angel (or demon). And of course, he may still just be the marshal's twin brother. The film itself never gives a definitive answer.

* MeaningfulName: Make the "L" in the town's name lower case, you get something resembling [[Theatre/{{Othello}} Iago]], a character who by some interpretations of the play is the Devil himself.

* OffIntoTheDistanceEnding: The film ends with The Stranger riding away into desert until he disappears; it's a complete reversal of the opening, which showed him appearing seemingly out of nowhere and riding into the corrupt little town.
