"...There are intriguing mysteries in SHANE..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Acclaimed director George Stevens' legendary rendition of the quintessential Western myth earned six Academy Award. nominations, and made Shane one of the classics of the American cinema. The story brings Alan Ladd, a drifter and retired gunfighter, to the assistance of a homestead family terrorized by a wealthy cattleman and his hired gun (Jack Palance). In fighting the last decisive battle, Shane sees the end of his own way of life. Mysterious, moody and atmospheric, the film is enhanced by the intense performances of its splendid cast.

Plot Synopsis:

Director George Stevens based this landmark western on Jack Schaefer's best-selling novel.
Shane, a handsome loner, rides into a Wyoming valley seeking refuge from his difficult past. He discovers the Starretts, a pioneer farm family looking for a hired hand. Suddenly, Ryker and his posse of gun-toting ruffians ride by and threaten to run Starrett off his farm. Ryker, a ruthless businessman, has been trying to rid the valley of homesteaders so he can expand his ranch. After witnessing this brutality, Shane decides to stay on and help out. Provoked by Ryker's boys, Shane joins the homesteader's fight, facing off with a hired gunslinger to make the valley safe for civilized folks like the Starretts. Shane's bravery wins Mrs. Starrett's heart. But this honorable horseman is going to ride off into the night alone.
