Shane by A. B Guthrie( Visual )

Mysterious and laconic, Shane rides down from the mountains into a valley where he encounters the homestead of farmer Joe Starrett, his wife Marian and their young son Joey. Starrett is the unofficial leader of a large group of homesteaders, who have united in opposition to a rapacious cattleman, Rufus Ryker. Ryker and his brother Morgan are trying to drive all the homesteaders out, so that they control over the entire valley. Shane takes Starrett's side in a confrontation with Ryker's men, and stays on to work on Starrett's farm. The homesteaders continue to resist, so Ryker imports famed gunslinger Jack Wilson from Cheyenne. When Wilson goads one of the homesteaders into a gunfight, he sets off a showdown between himself and Shane--with the future of the valley in the balance

"Su nombre es: William Bonney. Su leyenda se traduce a: Billy The Kid, el afamado pistolero de: El Zurdo. En el Viejo Oeste, jamás se había visto antes a alguien parecido a este personaje nacido en Brooklyn, quien ha escrito su nombre con sangre en las páginas de la historia. Paul Newman exhibe un complejo estilo -nunca antes visto en este género- que captura a la perfección la naturaleza de un asesino mitad muchacho, mitad hombre. Otra importante presencia en esta cinta es la Arthur Penn (Bonnie y Clyde, Pequeño Gran Hombre), quien se estrena como director, explorando por primera vez el tema sobre un enajenado forastero enfrentado por una sociedad hostil, mismo que retomo una y otra vez a lo largo de su carrera. La primera reacción ante esta película estuvo muy dividida. Pero no les causo ninguna sorpresa pues lo que Newman y Penn mostraron en la pantalla, en 1958, fue novedoso, provocativo y asombroso. Hoy en día, ha sido aclamado como un Western influyente y único."--Contenedor

Soylent Green: Charlton Heston plays a cop in this 21st century science-fiction horror story. The setting is New York, teeming with 40 million citizens, most of whom are out of work. Environmental erosion is almost complete and voluntary death is encouraged by government-sponsored clinics. For their food, the people have grown to rely almost totally on a greenish, wafer-like substance called soylent. As Heston investigates the murder of a magnate in the dictatorial Soylent Company, he comes face to face with the hideous truth about the secret ingredient of "Soylent Green."

Der Amerikanische Bürgerkrieg 1862: Das 304. Nordstaaten-Regiment wird in einem zermürbenden Drill auf den Einsatz vorbereitet. Als der junge Soldat Henry Fleming hört, dass anderntags seine erste Schlacht bevorsteht, packen ihn starke Ängste und Selbstzweifel. Seine Kameraden freuen sich indes auf den Kampf und prahlen mit ihrem Mut. Bereits auf dem Marsch zur Front sind die ersten gefallenen Soldaten zu sehen. Henrys Freund Tom Wilson gibt ihm seine Wertsachen, weil er glaubt, bald zu sterben. Henry ist der Anspannung nicht gewachsen und versucht, zu fliehen. Ein anderer Deserteur seines Regiments schlägt ihn dabei nieder. So wird Henry verletzt gefunden und von einem lakonischen älteren Soldaten zurückgebracht, der allen Kummer Gott überantwortet. Henry kann seine gescheiterte Flucht als tapferen Kampf mit dem Feind darstellen. Als er jedoch seinen siegreichen, aber verletzten Kameraden begegnet, plagen ihn starke Schuldgefühle. Er sieht deren blutige Wunden als "rote Tapferkeitsmedaillen". Henrys älterer Kamerad Jim schleppt sich indes mit einer Schussverletzung davon und bricht vor ihm tot zusammen. Wenig später trifft Henry auch Tom wieder, dem seine forschen Sprüche über das Heldentum längst vergangen sind. Zum Nachdenken bleibt jedoch keine Zeit. Das nächste Gefecht steht bevor. Mit dem Mut der Verzweiflung stürmt Henry mit seinem Gewehr zur vordersten Frontlinie. Ohne das es ihm bewusst wird, überwindet er seine Ängste.
