Alan Ladd’s greatest role? I think so. He is Shane, quiet most of the time until he has to strap on that gun again. Envious of the Starrett family. Family life which he can never have.
Shane says goodbye to young Joey (Brandon de Wilde).
A great script and a great director, George Stevens, brought out the best of Alan.
On the set with Jean Arthur and Van Heflin.
Shane and Marian dance.
Marvelous film. I recommend the Blu-ray, if you haven’t got it – the movie will look significantly better than you’ve ever seen it.
Would love to see it in a cinema .
