Acclaimed one of the best Westerns ever made, Shane is the forerunner of stories of moral order, the rights of man and the pursuit of happiness in the opening of the American West. Based on the novel by Jack Schaefer, it is the story of a former gunfighter coming to the aid of a homesteading family on the high plains during the 1890ís range wars. Winner of the Academy Award for best cinematography in 1953, itís beautifully filmed on location in Wyoming in the foreground of the Grand Teton range.
