I dont think that the Drifter is Jim Duncan. I think that he may have seen or heard what had happened to Duncan or maybe he was related. I am sure Duncan was buried.

The drifter is not Jim Dunkan because Jim died and is buried. I think the drifter is Jim's twin brother revenging his brothers death.

I don't believe that the drifter was Jim Duncan. I think that he may have somehow known of what had happened in Lago but was still just a drifter. The man who was killed had a tombstone so that shows you that he was actually placed in the ground. Also, Duncan's death and the events surrounding it was a big ordeal in the town so atleast someone had to have known Jim personally and known what he looked like and if the drifter looked like Jim, comments would have been made by the townspeople.

I think the Drifter is the ghost of Jim Duncan come back to seek revenge for his own death. He must be dead already or Cally would have killed him. He had dreams about the whipping. And as a ghost or shade he can appear to be some one he is not.

The drifter is Jim Duncan. The dream sequences he shares with Mordecai, the conversation with Mordecai at the end of the movie and the use of whips to take out two of the bad guys in Lago.

The drifter is Jim Duncan. He dreams the whipping. He cannot be killed even when shot at first range. He knows what the people did.

The Drifter is not Jim Duncan. Maybe a brother or some other relationship.The Drifter made his way to Lago just in time too have all the players in Jim's death at one location.The end is just an illusion,for dessert heat can play tricks on your eyes.

I think that the drifter is Jim Duncan because at the first of the movie he just appears, and then when Sally asked him if he believed that a man with no tombstone would wonder looking for revenge, and at the end he just fades away into the desert heat.

i think that the difter is Jim Duncan because he had the flashbacks in the motel room, only took revenge on those who did do the wrong, and he didnt die from the gun shoots in the bathtub.

The drifter could be anyone, but the opinion I hold is that he is Jim Duncan who has come back as an avenging angel to deliver revenge on his murderers

Yes the drifter is Jim Duncan, in one way or another. His abilities show that he is more than human, he is too good at using a pistol, he dodges bullets, and he even acts without personality, like something supernatural. He's to bloodthirsty to be an angel and he is to driven to be a relitive, its like it happened to him. No one would seek revenge to that extent for thier brother or father. Clint is a spirit of jim Duncan left for his revenge. He can probably rest after the revenge is done, that might be why dissapears.

Eastwood himself says the character is the brother, he states this in the episode of Inside the Actor's studio. Having the character associated with being an aberration in HPD, he decided to actually make "the Preacher" in Pale Rider just that.
