Classic Western !!!,
This review is from: Shane [DVD]  (DVD)In 1953 director George Stevens gave filmaudiences the first modern western. Shane is in fact an interesting revaluation of the role of violence in the West, seen trough the eyes of a child who worships the sad gunfigther played by Alan Ladd, an hero who is a victim of his own profession and who would give everithing to have the life of the farmers that he protects.
Also with Jack Palance as a brutal shootist and Van Heflin as the Farmer, Shane was one of the last pictures filmed in the classic 1.33 aspect ratio and presents a beautiful color photography.Essential!!!
