* An unlicenced subtitle track for the movie provides some great, though unintentional funny moments, mostly in its increasingly desperate attempts to transcribe Cogburn's [[TheUnintelligible brogue]]. It culminates with the parsing of his archetypal one-liner as "''Feel your hand, you son of a bitch''".

Added DiffLines:

* Mattie finally encountering Tom Chaney starts off as this. After being told the night before that the trail is cold and Chaney is long gone, she bumps into him when she goes to get some water from a nearby stream. At first Chaney is confused as to why his old boss' daughter is all the way out here, and then is more befuddled than anything when she tells him she's going to bring him to justice. Then as Mattie pulls her gun on him, Chaney, with a look of extreme boredom, actually walks her through how to prime it for firing (complete with Mattie irritably telling him ''she knows''). Then she actually shoots him and the recoil knocks her into the water. Chaney's more stunned than actually hurt than anything else!
-->'''Tom Chaney''': You shot me! ...I did not think you would do it.
