Added DiffLines:

* FixFic: John Wayne and Howard Hawks hated ''Film/HighNoon'' so much (calling it "un-American") that they created a film with the same basic concept but "fixed" to coincide with their ideology. Rather than a sheriff running around begging for help and being denied by cowardly townsfolk, the sheriff stands brave against the threat and receives the help of his community.


* RecycledSoundtrack: Dimitri Tiomkin recycles some of his own music from ''Film/RedRiver''.



** Creator/MontgomeryClift was the original choice for Dude, but he turned it down, unwilling to work with Creator/JohnWayne and Creator/WalterBrennan again after ''Film/RedRiver''. He did recommend Creator/DeanMartin for the role.
