Shane, The Making of

9780970846808: Shane, The Making of

This is the definitive book about the movie "Shane" and how it was made. There are over 125 photos, posters, lobby cards, etc., many of which have never been seen before, and many in color. Find out background information such as what Jack Schaefer thought of the film adaption of his book and the input of author A.B. Guthrie. Get info on trivia, song titles, philosophical observations, expenditures, on and off set stories about the cast and crew, and other misc. data. Find out where all the locations were with maps, why Jackson's Hole was chosen, and even GPS coordinates. Learn about the practical jokes, the poker games, book/movie comparisons, reviews, premiere information, and about all the flubs and flaws of the film. This is a cdrombook and as such can only be read on a PC or MAC computer with a suitable cdrom or DVD drive. It is different from a paper book in that when the author acquires new information or a new photo, it can be included in the next copy produced; incorrect information can be corrected or a typo fixed, when with a paper book this would not be possible. Most paper books would be highly edited, but this cdrom has every bit of research acquired by the author passed on to the reader. It is equivalent to an over 300 pg. book and any page can be printed out on your computer's printer. Great for simple reading enjoyment for the film buff or historian or, equal to the task of imparting information to the serious historian or film class.

From the Publisher:

The publisher and the author are the same. 2001 is the 50th anniversary of the making of this classic western film. 2002 is the 50th anniversary of its theatrical release, and 2003 is the 50th anniversary of the Academy Award that cinematographer Loyal Griggs received for his efforts.

From the Author:

As described in the general description, this method of writing a book gives the reader the total amount of collected research without the intrusion of an unsympathetic editor. I have yet to receive a bad review of my efforts. I live in the area where this film was made and had considerable access to locations and persons that worked on the film in 1951.
