Shane by Angela Day

“Shane” is a screenplay that was based on Jack Schaefer's 1949 book of the same name. The film is a classic western tale which is a very familiar and highly regarded in the western genre and the most successful Western of the 1950s and it is also a period piece since it is set in the late 1800’s.

The film also used the technique of dramatic foils by how the Ryker’s contrasted Shane and the homesteaders, using the visual technique of light and dark colors.
The use of low-angle shots was used in the scenes of watching a fist-fight as horse hooves stomp dust right up against the lens and up the tension of the fight; and then dissolve from a cemetery into a shot of Shane heading into battle. Sound effects were also present in this film but the most memorable would have to...
