"You Don't Know Jack!"
To gain a little more information about the figures in this story I bought the book "Shane" by Jack Schaefer. I was surprised at just how close the movie follows the story. Hardly any liberties were taken and all the events portrayed in the movie were straight out of the book. One thing that was different was that Shane showed up dressed in black not buckskins. A good, quick read even if you know how the tale will end. Another great source for the movie can be found on Wikipedia which has some really interesting facts about the stars. I knew Alan Ladd was short but didn't know he was afraid of guns! Funny for a guy who appeared in so many movies featuring weapons. And the bit about Jack Palance and horses is just too funny!
