You know how the movie ends, and I like that- but I think it is perfect that you don't know how Shane ends.

This is a review for the double DVD set released by Paramount featuring THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE(1962) and SHANE (1953).

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is in wide screen b&w, directed by John Ford and stars John Wayne, James Stewart, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin along with a magnificent cast of character actors, some of them regulars in many of John Fords's previous directoral efforts.

Critic/director Peter Bogdanovich has described THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE as the last classic film of Hollywood's Golden Era and although I am not sure when the golden era ended I wouldn't be able to muster much of an argument with him or anyone else who voiced appreciation for this incredible, dramatic, humorous and ultimately emotion filled movie. Often this has been called a great western but I think it is so much more
than a genre picture.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is about how what we call civilization came to this country, different areas in different eras, and just as importantly, how history is recorded and passed on down the generations.

Ford shows us what the actual truth is and then explains to us that "When legend becomes fact, print the legend." Just as he did in FORT APACHE Ford is telling us, among other things, that sometimes the unvarnished truth has to step aside for myths that will pass as facts in order to help encourage the advancement of civilization.

Aside from all of the above, THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is a cracking good story about a freshly minted lawyer who comes to the western town of Shinbone in a territory
that is yearning for statehood.

Two classic westerns for a great price. Both have excelent pictures and audio.You John Wayne fans will enjoy this classic and everyone should see Shane at least once in their life.

Two of my favorite westerns of all time. Entertaining throughout, and star acting. Lee marvin, one of the greatest actors in my opinion of all time was brilliant in, "The man Who Shot Liberty Valance". He plays a villian like none other. Alan Ladd's character in, "Shane", was so mild mannered and helpful to those in need. He was also brave, tough, and would not back down from a fight if you tried to bully him or those he was helping. The story lines were great. These movies are classics and will never be replaced by today's modern westerns. The great western movies and western movie actor's are gone forever.

I'm not sure why these two particular westerns were paired in one double-disc set. They do both contain classic western stars, and include classic confrontations between heroes and black-hatted bad men. However, to me, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" doesn't seem to be quite in the same class as "Shane" when it comes to acting and overall execution.

John Wayne and James Stewart were both well into their careers when they starred in this 1962 movie about the folks of Shinbone and their dread of what psychopath Liberty Valance (played by Lee Marvin) would visit on them each time he rode into town with his crew. Both Wayne and Stewart seem to have settled into imitating their imitators for these performances. They both seem to be playing what would become Rich Little's caricatures of them, right down to Wayne's sashaying greeting of, "Howdy, Pilgrim."

In spite of this, "Liberty Valance" has a redeeming conclusion and a host of implications that will leave you pondering for years to come. It poses the eternal question of who is better chosen to lead us -the man of action or the man of principle?

The romance of the film centers on a woman's choice between these two necessary pillars of society. The movie makes us aware of our inevitable longing - always for the other. When we have action, we long for stability; when we have stability, we can never quite get the heroic vision of action out of our hearts.

By contrast, "Shane" is perhaps the perfect western. My only disappointment with this disc was to find that "Shane" was actually made in color! Growing up, I'd just seen it on my black-and-white TV. I actually think it would have been better if it had been made in black-and-white.

Two great --and that's not an exaggeration-- actors and a fine script, with excellent photography, Liberty Valance is more evidence that the Western, often maligned, provided some of the better Hollywood movies of that generation. . (Of course there were some bad westerns, but look at today's output, with the formulaic car chase and buddy-with-the-snappy=jokes crud.) As for Shane, well, that's long been considered a classic, and one of the two or three best westerns ever. Shane alone would rate five stars; Liberty four, but there's no half-step here. An excellent afternoon of film viewing.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE directed by John Ford and SHANE directed by George Stevens are two classic visions of the American West.

SHANE has always been the film of what heroes and legends are made of. It is a classic to be sure. It is sentimental throughout and it lacks any hint of cynicism. Alan Ladd's Shane is probably his greatest role. He is the hired hand that can not put his past behind him and he is eventually forced to return to his former self to defend those who need him, those who cannot defend themselves against evil elements that threaten their peaceful way of life. Shane exits somewhere in the middle, the lonely figure that he is.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is a very good John Ford Western, which is untypical of Ford in many ways. It has a claustrophobic feel about it and it seems unusual that it was shot in black & white (by William Clothier) in 1962. On one hand John Ford was always concerned with Eastern vs. Western values. Most of Ford's Westerns have always been about bringing law and order to the West in which ultimately progress and not guns achieve that dream for society. Ford's vision of that dream is much darker here. In this film Ford creates a darker dream thus not allowing elements of the dream to expand into the legend. Thus, the visual claustrophobic feel bolsters that idea and reality of an aging and wiser filmmaker.

John Wayne quietly underplays his role. James Stewart as the idealistic Eastern lawyer who is robbed on the way West, goes to work in the town of Shinbone as a dishwasher and eventually brings law and order to the West unknowingly through the efforts of Wayne. Lee Marvin as the villainous and evil Liberty Valance is one of Ford's most violent screen incarnations.
