In 1952, Fred Zinneman directed ''Film/HighNoon'', an excellent {{Western}} that snagged a number of Oscars -- but numerous awards didn't keep Western legends Creator/JohnWayne and Creator/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''.

* TrojanPrisoner: Played with. The bad guys capture Chance and threaten to kill a hostage if he doesn't cooperate, then walk into the jail with him posing as federal marshalls. Stumpy isn't fooled however.

* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Chance informs Nathan that if there's any attempt to break out Joe, Stumpy will empty his shotgun into Joe's cell. Nathan points out that would be murder. Chance agrees, but says it doesn't matter as "we'll all be dead by then anyway."

* AffablyEvil: Nathan Burdette. For his [[SmallRoleBigImpact one extended scene in the movie]], he's polite and courteous the entire time. He even compliments Dude on his newfound sobriety and confidence ("Every man should have a taste of power before he's through."). Doesn't stop him from trying to bust his brother out of jail and plotting to kill Sherrif Chance and anyone who so much as offers to help Chance.
