Watch Little Bill's conversation in the jail to the writer. It shows that Bill ran in the same social circles as Bob when he was younger and that there is little real difference between them. He also knows about Munny and his history. The old gun fighters have grown up and are trying to find ways in the world but the world has no real use for them ...

The woman is one of the younger prostitutes, working from the tavern. She upsets the cowboy by laughing at him - specifically giggling at his size. When talking to Little Bill after the attack, Alice (the unofficial leader of the girls) says: She's going to live. She didn't steal nothing. She didn't even touch his poke.

While the joke remains the same, having the real Clint Eastwood site there for a short is more jarring and is more likely going to take the viewer outside of their suspense of disbelief. Having Jim impersonate ...

English Bob alludes to the fact that Little Bill was a drunkard and (by implication) an outlaw. They definitely crossed paths before but it is not indicated whether it was adversarial. Little Bill refers to Bob and himself as rare examples of "dangerous men" - men who can remain cool under pressure and kill without hesitation or remorse. These two and ...
