* SpiritedYoungLady: Feathers, being a quintessential "Hawksian Woman", is a master of dominating the scene--and is fiery enough to be willing to join in the fight.

Added DiffLines:

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Chance and Feathers, played by the 6'4" John Wayne and 5'5" Angie Dickinson, respectively. The sets were famously all built on a 7/8 scale to make the actors look larger than life. Next to Wayne, Dickinson looks like ''she'' was built on a 7/8 scale.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: Carlos rants to Chance about how, in his desperate attempt to carry out Chance's instructions to make ''sure'' Feathers gets on the stagecoach, he ended up trying to carry her--''just'' when his wife showed up. Carlos explains that he's ''responsible'' for Feathers. The end result was poor Carlos getting a black eye.

** Throughout the movie, the townsfolk loiter outside whenever they think the big confrontation between Burdette's hitmen and the sheriff is about to happen.

* TakeThat: ''Rio Bravo'' serves as one to ''Film/HighNoon''. Specifically the scene where Chance explains to Wheeler exactly why he ''doesn't'' go out asking any civilians for help: numbers or no, if they aren't ''professionals'', they're more apt to end up as just more targets.
** In a more subtle jab, Chance's key crew consists of a drunkard and an old cripple--basically, two fellows who have nothing to lose and are motivated by their loyalty to him. Guess who Gary Cooper turns away in ''High Noon''....

Hawks and his collaborators switched the story of ''High Noon'' to a professional's point of view: if people offered John Wayne their help, he would reply, "If they're really good, I'll take them. If not, they'll only cause me more trouble." Hawks' idea saw Wayne's sheriff take the opposite route of ''High Noon's'' sheriff in every critical decision and position from ''High Noon'' while remaining successful in his task.

In 1952, Fred Zinneman directed ''HighNoon'', an excellent {{Western}} that snagged a number of Oscars -- but numerous awards didn't keep Western legends JohnWayne and HowardHawks from thinking the idea of a Sheriff running around town and begging people to help him face a couple of outlaws looked [[strike:un-American]] unprofessional. (As Howard Hawks explained to the French magazine ''Cahiers du Cinéma'', he didn't like the idea, especially since ''High Noon's'' sheriff eventually proved a little luck -- and some help from his bride -- made him perfectly capable of doing his job alone.) So in 1959, the duo made '''''Rio Bravo'''''

* RatedMForManly: One of the things QuentinTarantino likes the most about this movie is how it uses this trope.
