* 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.

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'''''

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Even so, there's still one Quiet Drama Scene that stands out from all the others in most viewwers' memories: the moment in the jailhouse where Dude, Colorado, and Stumpy are relaxing, singing songs to pass the time, illustrating [[TrueCompanions the camaraderie that's grown up between them.]]

* TheCastShowOff: Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson singing the memorable song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2ssbgThljU My rifle, my pony and me]]", a rearrangement of Dimitri Tiomkin's own theme from ''Film/RedRiver''

* ArchEnemy: Nathan Burdette and Joe Burdette to Chance and co.



* BigBad: Nathan Burdette:



* GiveMeASword: The bad guys have Chance where they want him in front of a saloon, but then suddenly Feathers throws a plant pot through the window and simultaneously Colorado throws a rifle to him.



* PrisonerExchange: Dude gets captured and the villains will release him in exchange for Joe Burdette. Unusually for this trope, we never get any indication of whether or not the villains intend to play fair, as it's the heroes that play dirty and go in with every intention of leaving with both prisoners.



* QuickDraw: Subverted. When asked why he carries a rifle, Sheriff Chance replies that he found there were lots of men faster with a pistol.



* TheSiege

to:

* TheSiegeTheSiege: The plot involves the villains laying siege to the jail where Joe is held and Sheriff Chance holding them off until the Marshall arrives.



* YoungGun: Colorado Ryan

to:

* 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.
* YoungGun: Colorado RyanRyan. A slight subversion in that Chance says about him: "It's nice to see a smart kid for a change." and Stumpy agrees. "Yeah, he's not like the usual kid with a gun."
