Why
"SHANE- The greatest western ever made"

MODA Entertainment is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the
legendary western Shane - which starred Alan Ladd, Van Heflin and Jean
Arthur, nominated for six Academy Awards, won for best cinematography
and went on to become one of the most popular and enduring westerns of
all time - by screening a new 35mm print with a "never seen before"
extended ending. This ending was cut before the film was ever
released. This will be the first time an audience has ever seen the
movie with this ending.

MORGAN FREEMAN STATEMENT: "I have been greatly affected by the western
Shane, and the performances, ever since I was young, and even now.
This particular western transcends the regular shoot-em up bang-bang
sentiment that was normally associated with the quickly-made, and
easily produced films typical of the genre and the times."
