Don't Mess With a Classic
15 August 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A big mistake was made when someone got the bright idea to make a television series out of the classic film that starred Alan Ladd. It deservedly lasted only for 17 episodes. Fortunately no one's career got hurt.

The whole premise of the film was Alan Ladd riding in to the valley, dealing with the villains and LEAVING because his job was done and he knew he was becoming a romantic rival of Van Heflin for the affections of wife Jean Arthur. Alan Ladd's conduct was the whole point of the film.

Here we've got Mrs. Starrett being a widow and being looked after by gunfighter turned farm hand Shane. They added a character of Tom Tully as her father-in-law. Jill Ireland played Mrs. Starrett and villain Rufe Ryker is played by Bert Freed.

Freed will acquire that Starrett homestead one way or another. He'll either drive her out or marry her. Freed casts some lascivious eyes on her the way Emile Meyer did in the film. But in the TV show he's got a wedding ring ready if all else fails.

Shane is played by David Carradine who I think midway in the series lost interest. He knew he was in a turkey that was slated for early cancellation.

Wise move too.
