Not Rated | | Drama, Western
A weary gunfighter attempts to settle down with a homestead family, but a smoldering settler/rancher conflict forces him to act.
Several characters appearing in Jack Schaefer's original novel had their names changed for their appearance in this film adaptation of Shane. Most notably, Robert "Bob" Macpherson Starrett became Joey Starrett, Luke Fletcher became Rufus Ryker (whose relatives were only called by their first names in the novel, and may not have actually been related), and Stark Wilson became Jack Wilson.
Somebody's comin', Pa!
Joe Starrett: Well, let him come.
In the early scene at the saloon where Shane gets the drink spilled on him, his shirt is wet/dry/wet between shots.
Introducing Brandon De Wilde
The film was shot in Academy Ratio (1.33:1 or 4:3), but this was done around the time widescreen filmmaking was coming around. As such, many theatres cropped the film into a widescreen ratio to take advantage of this, with many DVDs being cropped as well. The 2013 Blu-ray Disc release is in the proper Academy Ratio.
