The purpose of the film series is to encourage psychoanalytic dialogue with respect to creativity and movies. 

Description: Enigmatic gunslinger Shane (Alan Ladd) rides into a small Wyoming town with hopes of quietly settling down as a farmhand. Taking a job on homesteader Joe Starrett's farm, Shane is drawn into a battle between the townsfolk and ruthless cattle baron Rufus Ryker. Shane's growing attraction to Starrett's wife, Marian (Jean Arthur), and his fondness for their son Joey, who idolizes Shane, force Shane to realize that he must thwart Ryker's plan. --Summary found on Rotten Tomatoes.

Discussant:  Eric Braden is a retired psychologist who practiced for 44 years in the Denver area. He now devotes his energies to photography, trying to learn to play the saxophone and to speaking Spanish (hope springs eternal), skiing, biking, and keeping track of his and his wife Harriet's three grandchildren via Zoom.
