ABC’s short-lived “Shane” made a valiant effort at transferring the big screen movie hit of 1953 to the small TV screen, but David Carradine simply wasn’t Alan Ladd and, basically, by 1966, westerns on TV were (unfortunately) not showing the strength they had in the early ‘60s.
Good ol Western. As simple as they get and as neat as they were made. A weary gunfighter's plans for a peaceful life dont seem to work out as the settlers are in conflict with the ranchers. There is a huge amount of tension built up with a brilliant pay off. [8/10]
