** The old-timer in ''High Noon'', Martin Howe (Lon Chaney Jr.) is the retired marshal of Hadleyville and would be useless in a gunfight because of his arthritic hand and busted knuckles. In ''Rio Bravo'', the old-timer Stumpy (Walter Brennan) is the sheriff's other deputy, and has a gammy foot so he's still able to shoot.

* CounterpartComparison: According to film scholar Peter Cochran, ''Film/HighNoon'' and Rio Bravo have two of the same types of characters who show up in the film: the town drunk and the old-timer, but the two are presented very differently.

* HeReallyCanAct: Despite appearing to call for nothing more than Creator/JohnWayne's typical performance, the film lets him show more range than usual, as Chance has quite a few vulnerable moments where it's clear how worried he really is about making it through the standoff. He also gets really flustered in his scenes with Feathers.

** In ''High Noon'', the drunk, Charlie (Jack Elam) is asleep in a jail cell for most of the movie, and just before the shootout, when the marshal releases him, he’s still fuzzy and appears to have no idea what’s going on. All the marshal can do is try to send him home. His ''Rio Bravo'' counterpart Dude (Dean Martin) is one of the sheriff's deputies, and is fast on the draw when the script requires him to be.
