* NitroExpress

to:

* NitroExpressNitroExpress: TheVillain Hawk and his outlaws have seized several crates of nitro glycerin, which they intend to use in a payroll train robbery. When Marshall Cogburn absconds their wagon with the nitro, the outlaws chase them, but are loathe to shoot at them lest they detonate the nitro. Much of the film's story centers on this cat-and-mouse game with these munitions.


* ArtisticLicense: Gatling guns do not fire as fast as shown in the movie.


Added DiffLines:

* GunsDoNotWorkThatWay: Gatling guns do not fire as fast as shown in the movie.



to:

* ActorAllusion: Creator/KatharineHepburn plays an uptight religious woman against a boorish man. [[Film/TheAfricanQueen Sounds familiar]].


* HamAndCheese: Richard Jordan who plays Hawk hams it up as the villain Hawk and did so expecting the film to turn out a flop and figured he might as well have some fun.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Breed is by no means a good guy, but he does keep an eye on Rooster and tries to help him stay alive since it's established that they used to be friends.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicense: Gatling guns do not fire as fast as shown in the movie.
* BadBoss: Hawk belittles his men enough throughout the movie and even throws his drink at another. Breed gets the worst of the treatment considering hes the most talented of the group.


Added DiffLines:

* GatlingGood: The gatling gun as part of the wagon full of nitro. Both Rooster and Eula get a chance to fire it.

Added DiffLines:

* BelligerentSexualTension: Rooster and Goodnight's bickering gets inevitably flirtatious soon enough.
* CallBack: Rooster regales his companions with the story of his facing off against the villains in the climax of ''Film/TrueGrit''.
* CoolOldGuy: Rooster.

Added DiffLines:

* OffIntoTheDistanceEnding: Marshal Cogburn sits still upon his horse during the rolling credits as Eula Goodnight rides ever further into the distance.
