* TalentDouble: Shane's fancy gun twirling in the climactic showdown was actually performed by Rodd Redwing. Earlier, when Shane demonstrates his prowess for Joey, and it is clearly Alan Ladd himself on camera, the actor had been given a different, easier-to-use revolver for the scene.

Last film for Creator/JeanArthur, whose Hollywood career dated back to TheThirties. Was essentially remade and combined with ''HighPlainsDrifter'' as the Creator/ClintEastwood film ''PaleRider'', with Creator/ClintEastwood basically playing Alan Ladd's role.

%% * BarBrawl

to:

%% * BarBrawlBarBrawl: Shane starts one with Calloway to repay the way Calloway insulted him the first time he came into town. He beats Calloway and then challenges the rest of Ryker's gang. Starret has to wade in with a club, and they defeat all of them.

%% * DeterminedHomesteader: Joe Starrett
%%
Starrett refuses to move off of his land in spite of any threats and tries to get the other farmers to band together and stand up to Ryker.
* TheDragon: Jack WilsonWilson is brought in by Ryker to enforce his will on the homesteaders. Wilson shoots Torrey and Shane has to get through him to beat Ryker.



* DueToTheDead: When the other farmers decide to flee after Torrey's murder, Starett persuades them to at least stay long enough to give the man a proper funeral.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Ryker waits for the Staretts on their farm when they come back from the Fourth of July and attempts to persuade them that he's got the better rights to the land, then says that they ought to work for him instead. However, he brings his muscle too, and goes right back to hostility when the Starett refuses.

to:

%% * KnightErrant: Shane, Shane is a wandering gunfighter who automatically steps to the defense of course.Starret when Ryker tries to intimidate him, in spite of Starret's initial (but understandable) unfriendliness.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The other farmers are all set to leave in the wake of Torrey's death even with Starett's speech... until they see that Ryker's men have set fire to Lewis' farm, which stiffens their spines again.



%% * RetiredGunfighter

to:

%% * RetiredGunfighterRetiredGunfighter: It's implied that Shane used to be a dangerous gunfighter. However, he seems content to work as a farmhand for Starett until Ryker forces him to fight again.
* RousingSpeech: Starett tries to give one (though subdued, giving the setting) to the other families at Torrey's funeral, entreating them to stay and stand up to Ryker. Shane backs him up, but it's not until they see Ryker burning Lewis' farm that they listen.


Added DiffLines:

* SoftSpokenSadist: Wilson never raises his voice once. His challenge to "prove it" is hardly above a whisper, and he has a rather unsettling smile on his face the whole time.
