    Tom Doniphon is a local farmer, who observes, "Liberty Valance's the toughest man south of the Picketwire--next to me. Enter Tom Doniphon: unshaved, dirty, urging Stoddard to accept the nomination and telling him that he, Tom, has killed Valance - shot him in the back: "It was clear case murder. When the gunman goes too far the lawyer stands up to him. Ford isn't making an anachronistic statement on racism, but he's being sure we notice it. By killing Liberty Valance, facilitating Stoddard's rise to political prominence and the progressive modernization of the West, Doniphon destroys himself.

    Despite the efforts of the ranchers to make a defamatory statement about Stoddard's feat and make Liberty some kind of martyr, statehood is pursued on favorable terms to the common people of the area. Doniphon lives the rest of his life bitter and alone, while Stoddard goes on to be governor of the new state, Senator, and later Ambassador to Britain. The lawyer is a hero to the town, but he hates what he's done. The lawyer works as a dishwasher and is respected by the townspeople. He is left without the girl he loves at the dawn of a new era that has no need for his kind of individuality.

    Hallie begs him to leave. In an attempt to protect a woman on board the stage, Ransom is being beaten up badly and left to die. But I decided I needed to do the reading. Stoddard has come to town with a satchel full of law books, and hangs out his shingle at the newspaper office. And, if you want violence, Liberty Valance is your man. But in no other movie Ford's point of the distinction between the skills and virtue of the wilderness embodied in Doniphon and the compromises and final success of civilization Stoddard becomes that clear.
