Shane (Single-Disc Standard Edition Blu-ray) Blu Ray|
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 Hortonfrom£9.69 | RRP:

Alan Ladd stars as the titular gunslinger in this Western directed by George Stevens. Shane is a soft-spoken, lonely ex-gunfighter who becomes a farmhand for a frontier family. When all the local homesteaders are terrorised by a ruthless cattleman, Shane reluctantly faces the fact that his gunfighting skills are of more use than his farm labour. The film was nominated for several Academy Awards and won for Best Cinematography.
