And now it's an older cop who stops a younger one from shooting. And they all lower their guns.

And she's still got the roses!

My mom saw this movie when it originally came out in the theater and she said somebody in the theater was yelling “somebody help him!”

The gauntlet has become a sort of honor guard, as no one dares to shoot.

That's the only time Clint's gun gets fired at a person in this movie. And Mally does it.

And off they walk ... towards that little parcel of land in the north, near the Canyon. And they have kids and live happily ever after! :D

Yeah what a great time! I didn’t know I needed a 70s Eastwood movie. But it hit the spot.

That score is one of my favorites in a Clint movie.

It did. It's been years since I've watched one.

I didn't see a cantelope in this movie. Was that Tightrope?  Come to think of it, there's a little bit of similarity between Wes and Shockley.

That sign in the final scene, by the way? It's in front of the First National Bank. It says, "Give us a chance to say Yes."  Not sure how that fits into the symbolism?
