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

The desolation, cynicism, and futility of war are embodied in this film based on a novel that took as its subject a real incident from World War I. Three innocent French soldiers are tried and convicted of cowardice, after their battalion fails to take a heavily fortified German position. Colonel Dax, a lawyer in civilian life, attempts to defend the men, who were chosen by a random drawing of lots. The General Staff, comfortable and safe behind the lines, demands they be executed to inspire the troops remaining in the trenches. Critical of the military hierarchy, and the class divisions that inspire the antipathy of common soldiers for the officer class, the film is renowned for its depiction of the callous treatment of the condemned men, taking their lives in so arbitrary a fashion
