Honestly, beforehand, I didn't really know what to expect but since it is a classic, I thought I should give it a try. Basically, it is a rather standard Western story about some simple farmers who are bullied by some evil cattle baron and, of course, a mysterious stranger passes by and saves the day. It doesn't sound really original and it is completely predictable but we shouldn't forget that th... read more

Shane rides into a conflict between cattleman Ryker and a bunch of settlers, like the Starretts, whose land Ryker wants.

Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"The poignant final goodbye scene in which young, anguished, and heartbroken Joey Starrett (Brandon De Wilde), with tears streaking down his face, sadly cried out after his hero/idol Shane (Alan Ladd): ("Pa's got things for you to do, and Mother wants you. (the words "wants you" echo) I know she does. Shane. Shane! Come back! 'Bye, Shane"), as the wounded gunfighter rode away on his horse toward the mountains, slumped in the saddle, in one of filmdom's most famous and haunting endings."

"The echoing finale, as Shane rides off into the bluish distance of the empty Wyoming landscape after a poignant goodbye and farewell is an unforgettable sequence. Young Joey (Brandon de Wilde) is the only one to bid Shane, his mythical idolized hero, farewell. As gunfighter Shane starts to leave, he indicates to Joey that he will never return. Tears well up in Joey's eyes and Shane whispers quietly: "Bye, little Joe." The fringe-jacketed, lonely hero then rides off into the twilight meadow towa"
