Treadmill Theater: Trudging Through the Classics #5 - Shane (part 2)

Fill in the blank: "Soylent Green is _____". Whoops, there goes that movie.

How about this? "Shane! Come _____!"


In the trailer for this one, there was a bit of Shane dancing with Marian Starrett, with the narrator saying that the ladies love Shane. That's awfully misleading - if you want to call this a love story, it's the love of a family, not of a stranger who rides in to town and romances the farmer's wife.


Interesting to see Jack Palance as a younger man. Still the same character, just younger.

Still to go:


  • Doctor Zhivago (1965)
  • Witness for the Prosecution (1957)
  • Wuthering Heights (1939)
  • King Kong (1933)


Seems like I could have this project wrapped up by Memorial Day.
