Shane! Come Back!

American movie star Alan Ladd was born 100 years ago today…

Dropped as a contract player by Universal Studios because he was deemed to be too short, Ladd went on to become one of the biggest (no pun intended) stars of the 40s and 50s.


His finest hour is surely Shane in which he plays a jaded gunslinger drawn back into action by circumstances beyond his control.


For those under the age of 40 who haven’t seen the movie: a) See it, and; b) The following clip will give the entire game away so go easy.


For those without a heart of pure granite, make sure your hanky in nearby.


For those unsure about Shane’s be-fringed suede jacket, we believe it to be a look that should be approached with extreme caution in any context outside of a Western picture…
