I think it's a tad funny Scala is saying he'll have to watch it on Netflix. I don't think it will be on Netflix. Maybe it will be

Yes, many times. I even saw it of the big screen once in Harvard Square. Great movie.

I think it was on the original top 100 American films list. Yeah. It was on the first list then actually went up a bunch of spots on the revised list.

Not only have I seen the film, I read the novel by Jack Schaefer when I was in high school.

I'm a millennial so naturally I had to look this up. This was made in 1953, sheesh. First movie I've ever seen which is still my favorite to this day was The Matrix on this thing called a VCR.

I've seen it several times.  As Roy indicated, Shane is a classic.

For those who aren't fans of the 1950s-style cinematography and melodrama of the Alan Ladd original, Clint Eastwood's "Pale Rider", made in the 80s, is a more contemporary remake.  The latter is grittier, more violent and less sentimental.   Not necessarily a better overall movie.  Just different.

Watched it, classic. Here, in Croatia, Shane is immortalized in the song from a cult band from the 80ies, Haustor (Hausdoor). People in their 50ies/40is still get chills when its on.

Mike and Tommy were discussing it last night and Scal had no idea what they were talking about.

Not in the top 100?  I want to see your list. ;)

#45 on the top 100 movies of all time according to the American Film Institute. #3 western behind The Searchers and High Noon.

Great film noted for it's cinematography which was unusual for the time. Jack Palance made a memorable villain in particular.
You realize where this is going. This is all about money laundering.

I was never a big fan of Westerns, but when you have only 10 channels to choose from on TV, and going to the movies was a luxury enjoyed only a few times a year, you watch whatever is on...westerns, sci-fi, comedy, horror, drama...
