A retired gunfighter, now a drifter determined to establish a peaceful life, comes to the aid of a homestead family threatened by a land barron and his hired gun.
Consciously crafted by director George Stevens as a piece of American myth making, Shane is on nearly everyone's shortlist of great movie Westerns. A buckskin knight, Shane (Alan Ladd) rides into the middle of a range war between farmers and cattlemen, quickly siding with the "sod-busters". While helping a kindly farmer (Van Heflin), Shane falls platonically in love with the man's wife (Jean Arthur, in the last screen performance of a marvellous career). Though the showdowns are exciting, and the story simple but involving, what most people will remember about this movie is the friendship between the stoical Shane and the young son of the farmers. The kid is played by Brandon De Wilde, an amazing child performer; his parting scene with Shane is guaranteed to draw tears from even the most stony-hearted moviegoer. And speaking of stony hearts, Jack Palance made a sensational impression as the evil gunslinger sent to clean house--he has fewer lines of dialogue than he has lines in his magnificently craggy face, but he makes them count. The photography, highlighting the landscape near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, won an Oscar. --Robert HortonSee all Product description

to today's movie fans.
Often starring childhood hero's such as 'Alan Ladd' ...'Shane' is seen by many as one of the all-time 'Classic' Westerns.
A drifter 'Shane' rides onto a homestead seeking only for a cup of water, the owner 'Joe Starrett' (Van Heflin) is at first suspicious
of the stranger because he seems to quick to re-act to quickly to his son 'Joey' (Brandon De Wilde) cocking his unloaded rifle.
'Joe' asks 'Shane' to leave when riders approach not wanting to encourage any trouble, it's land-baron 'Ryker' (Emile Meyer) and
his men.....'Ryker' wants 'Joe' and his family along with all the other homesteader's off the lands they'd staked a claim on, he was
here before them and see's the lands as his.....'Shane' hadn't left the property and stood alongside 'Joe' as 'Ryker' had his say.
'Joe's' wife 'Marian' (Jean Arthur) suggests that 'Shane' share's a meal with them and beds down for the night in the barn.
Some while ago 'Joe' employed help, 'Ryker' had scared them off, though 'Shane' has no roots the offer of a job and a place to stay
for a while seems like a good idea.
When riding into town to collect a few supplies 'Shane' is given a cold reception by one or two of 'Ryder's' men and told by 'Calloway'
(Ben Johnson) to stay away from town, 'Shane' knows the score but the retired gun-fighter walks away...this time.
'Rylker' see's 'Joe' as the main obstacle in his attempt to drive the homesteaders off their lands, he's the one person holding them
together, without him, they would all leave.Read more ›
who said it was a favourite Western of his. The phone call I got from the person was brilliant as he forgot he had told me about it.
well worth getting on bluray as I am doing
