Quiet Gunfighter on Western Range
Based on Jack Schaefer's short novel, Shane is the story of a gunfighter in buckskins who knows his time on the western range is passing. Alan Ladd - in the title role - is a man who seemingly wants to put his past behind him. He hires out to a farming family - doing odd chores - and puts away his buckskins. This is a story of simple people who want to live in peace on the Western range and of the cattlemen who think the land is theirs. The cattlemen make conflict and violence their weapon. The farmers are hard pressed to hold their own. Ladd's Shane is really closer to the violent ways of the ranchers than he is to those of the farmers. At film's end, he returns to the gun and to the life he formerly knew.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
