Alan Ladd, unlike actors of today is manly, with a deep voice and very original in every sense.we watch Shane many times, brought home today for pa to watch it again after 30 years...

A very handsome actor. Enjoyed Boy on a Dolphin and Shane - wonderful films. I liked his calm and tough manner.

This is an actor, that while I was growing up, if only for a few hours, put light in my life - if only for that moment in time. Great Actor.
