Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • At the barbershop, Paladin smears shaving cream on Grady's head. There is one smear far back on the left side of Grady's head on his hair. Paladin grabs him by the head and his left hand is parallel with Grady's neck, his thumb in the air on top of the smear. In the next shot, Paladin's hand instantly rotates 90 degrees and the smear is now much further forward on Grady's hair, with Paladin's fingers all on top of it.

    • When Grady and Frank talk, Grady rides over to Frank and his left hand is on the saddlehorn and his right hand is on top of it. The camera cuts to a reverse shot and Grady's right hand immediately goes under the left.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Paladin: (to a nervous barber) In ancient days the barbers were also surgeons. This is the 19th century and if I want any blood let, I'll get a doctor to do it.

    • Paladin: Some day that boy may very well try to kill you.
      Morgan: That boy? Huh. I can out draw him, outshoot him, or spank him. Wouldn't even be close.

    • Paladin: Are you prepared to pay $500 for Grady's life, and $500 for yours. That's a thousand dollars in all if you both come out of this alive.
      Morgan: That's quite a chunk of money.
      Paladin: Are your lives worth any less?

    • Morgan: I suppose you're pretty good with that gun.
      Paladin: I'm considered fairly proficient.

    • Morgan: Heard in town that Sheila got married this morning.
      Paladin: Yeah, I was afraid she would; common sense is never any match for Cupid.

    • Paladin: This had to be done. Sooner or later, somebody would have had to do it.
