Without clicking, I recognize Jack Palance's character Jack Wilson from the movie Shane.
Purely coincidence I watched Shane last night. The film is brilliant in every respect. Won Best Picture 1953, and with cause. A masterpiece of the art. Visually stunning.
You know you're watching something special right from the opening sequence. Location shots were filmed in Jackson Hole with the Grand Tetons looming in the background.
The lyric quality to the dialogue gave the film a poetic nature. The use of visual foreshadowing and symbolism is unparalleled in any western I've ever seen.
Casting Alan Ladd was a stroke of genius in my opinion. His understated performance made him loom as large as the Tetons and created an imposing figure in the film.
Do I love the film Shane? You bet.
