shane (1953) - george stevens

Alan Ladd stars as Shane, the mysterious stranger who is trying to give up his gunfighting past.  He befriends a family and tries to settle down, but (of course), the family and Shane are hassled by the baddies (including an impressive Jack Palance). Shane is worshipped by the families young boy, and avoids any confrontation with the bad guys, until he eventually cracks, goes into town, and sorts them all out (naturally).
A classic.
