* TakeThat: Gatewood procalims that America should have a businessman for president. At the time, Herbert Hoover, a businessman, was president. This was a deliberate dig by Creator/JohnFord.

Added DiffLines:

* CallingShotGun: The film popularised it.


Added DiffLines:

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Gatewood.


Added DiffLines:

* DramaticGunCock: Ringo pulls this off with a ''lever-action rifle''.


Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Ringo's introduction.
* FakeOutOpening: Trailer example: The 1939 coming-attractions spot opens with....documentary footage of trains (a stretch for the Old West, but still believable) and airplanes! It makes no sense at all without the narrator's commentary: he's comparing the present (1930s) with the past, and actual footage from the movie doesn't show up in the trailer until the narrator says something along the lines of "What were things like back then?" (Weird, to be sure, but justified and even effective for a moviegoing audience who up to this point had probably never seen a Western movie, or at least one that was done so well.)


Added DiffLines:

* InjunCountry: The stagecoach enters Apache country and must ultimately flee from a swarm of angry Apaches giving chase.


Added DiffLines:

* JustEatGilligan: Creator/JohnFord was once asked why, during the climactic chase scene, the Indians didn't just shoot the horses to stop the stagecoach? "Because the movie would have ended right there", he replied.
** Also the horses were probably the most valuable thing (to the Indians) on the stage. They didn't now about the stolen money and probably didn't know how many women were there. So if you kill the horses, all you get is the chance to rape and murder.


Added DiffLines:

* OneBulletLeft: Hatfield saves his last bullet to spare Mrs. Mallory "a fate worse than death". There's another woman on the coach but she's a prostitute so he doesn't seem to care. [[spoiler:He's just about to pull the trigger when he's shot and mortally wounded, sparing her. They are saved by the calvary moments later]].


Added DiffLines:

* UnorthodoxReload: In his first scene, Ringo reloads a rifle this way.

Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Doc Boone is a rambling, semi-comic drunkard for most of the film, until he has to sober up to deliver Mrs. Mallory's baby. Following this he takes a major role in defending the stage from Apaches and even stares down a dangerous gunfighter while completely unarmed.

* ShellShockedVeteran: Implied to be the reason for Doc Boone's drinking: he was an army medic during the Civl War.
