* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Since we never really learn the history between Kane and Miller, and Miller is a VillainWithGoodPublicity in the town, some viewers come away from this movie with the impression that Kane really did send Miller to prison for unjust reasons, muddying which one of them is "in the right" during the events of the film.
* AwardSnub: This film losing the Best Picture Oscar to Creator/CecilBDeMille's ''Film/TheGreatestShowOnEarth'' is regarded by many as one of the more egregious examples in Hollywood history. Many blamed it on the Academy not wanting to vote for it out of fear of coming under fire by the HUAC.

* HilariousInHindsight: Nowadays, viewers can get a chuckle over the omnimous threat that is Creator/FrankMiller. Especially the theme song mentioning him by name and saying he'll be shot dead.

* TearJerker: Kane's last deputy, Herb Baker, visits Kane in his office, asking about the posse that Kane was going to gather. Herb realizes it's just the two of them against Miller's four-man gang and makes an excuse to back out of the fight: "What about my wife and kids"? Kane sends him off, and once Herb is gone, he buries his head in his harms and finds himself on the verge of tears.

* OneSceneWonder: Creator/JackElam has about twenty seconds of screen time as the town drunk, Charlie, yet the character had a memorably funny moment when, on being released from the jail, he hazily asked Kane if any bars were open.

* StoicWoobie: Kane. He doesn't express his feelings much, and talks and acts in a very calm and collected manner, but the townspeople mistrust and reject him, and even if she doesn't want him to get killed, even his wife seems to desert him. By the time Miller and his gang arrive, he's completely alone.
