* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Tom Doniphon was a coward. [[spoiler: He shot Valance in secret and claimed credit in private, not to ease Stoddard's conscience over killing Valance, but to saddle him rival with a lifetime of guilt. Stoddard was the one who actually put his life on the line.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: JohnWayne as the straight shooting tough guy and JamesStewart as the soft spoken pacifist becomes unintentionally funny when you consider that Stewart actually served in World War II and Wayne didn't. So Jimmy Stewart was actually far more of a tough guy than the Duke himself.

* MemeticMutation: This film is the reason that any John Wayne impression will inevitably include the word "Pilgrim."

* MisaimedFandom: The quote about "print the legend" is often seen by moviegoers and critics as Ford's defense of the "noble lie". However film historians note that this isn't Ford's intentions, since Ford in ''Liberty Valance'' showed the "making of the legend" and the consequences, lies and evasions that go into it and what it measn for Ransom to live that lie. As Peter Bogdanovich said, "Ford always printed the truth".

* VindicatedByHistory: Contemporary critics viewed it as, basically, just another John Wayne movie, though it did well at the box office. Over the years it's become recognized as one of Ford and Wayne's best movies.
