Quite simply, the greatest western movie ever filmed and one of the greatest American movies, period. Everything about it is magnificent and much to be savored again and again: the story, the dialogue, the set decoration, cinematography, acting, music score, etc. If Shane is not in your movie collection, you don't have a movie collection.

A superbly awesome screen adaptation of Jack Schaeffer's 120 page (paperback edition) book. Perhaps the "GREATEST" western ever made! A wonderful love story woven in and fiction brought to real life as folks fought to build this great nation in "the old west". Wealthy "land baron" ranchers, poor dirt farmers staking claims and "Gunfighters"; Not a single ingredient missing. If you saw it--- YOU WERE THERE!
