Was Alan ladd gun shy?

If one looks very closely at Alan Ladd as he fires his gun in "Shane" and at both of the scenes that he used it in, he screwed his eyes up tight and hardly what you would expect from a hardened gunfighter who would in his own interests be more than concerned whether or not he was hitting what he was aiming at and "Jack Wilson " in particular who would only have needed Shane to miss just once and the film would have had a different ending ! The other notable thing, though slightly irrelevant, is that a Colt 54 was only good at "arms length" so as to speak where the weapon didn't so much as launch a bullet as it lobbed a lump of lead in the general direction of whatever or whoever it was meant to hit and was so unreliable that gunfights took place almost face to face and both parties emptied there guns in the general direction of their antagonist until Iether one was hit, or both ran out of bullets - or just plain simply got bored with the idea. The West was full of colourfull charcters but very short on gunfighters that could could knock the eye out of a crow at a hundred yards, from the hip, and on the turn - but in order to put bums on seats, Hollywood made sure they could !

Why does Berta call Alan Zippy?

One of the first times (if not THE first time) she calls Alan "Zippy" she refers to "Zippy the Chimp". "Zippy" was a chimpanzee television/shorts character from the late 50s and early 60s. He was featured as a sort of "near human" character, rather than as an animal, in a series of shorts used as fillers on television and at movie theaters. He was treated as an equal by his child co-actors. he sort of filled the role of the main character in the shorts (ala "Spanky" in "Our Gang") but typically closed out the feature by doing something extraordinarily foolish - thus proving himself to be only a monkey (ala Alan Harper).

Where can you buy a belt like Alan Ladd wore in the movie Shane?

Alan Ladd sent my Father a letter in 1956 about the gunbelt ( actually a 'concho'- belt, Native American made ) that he explained was purchased for him by his wife "Sue" as a gift. There were only 5 made of this style concho and my Father now owns one that it took me YEARS to rack down. There were (two) holsters used in the movie. Alan Ladd/s own and one that was used in some scenes and for publicity photo's/appearances. I tracked that one down too. There were two revolvers used. Alan Ladd's own ( which had the trigger removed and was 'set-up' to be 'fanned') where-in Ladd was able to draw the revolver quickly and 'sweep' the hammer back ( letting it fall ) thus firing. There was a 2nd revolver/replica with the trigger and missing the front site ( as was Ladd's ) to allow for no 'snagging' on the holster. The replica had a ( 2nd pair ) of hand carved ivory horsehead grips which were also Ladd's. In the letter, Ladd tells my father that "Miss Head ( the well known Edith Head/Costumer-designer ) was correct, and the costume ( actually one of 4 buckskin shirts, the hat, the holster ( one used in some scenes and promo photo's ) and gun ( the 2nd non-shooting replica w/horsehead grips ) had indeed been sent to the wax museum in England ( Madame Tussaud's ). My Father now has this costume, except for the buckskin pants and boots which were stored and lost many years ago.


Are guns bad?

no but the people behind them can be a gun is metal, and plastic or wood. nothing more a bullet is copper, zinc, lead or steel, and propellant. nothing more these items need a human being to load the bullet, disengage the safety, rack the bolt, and fire. (a gun dose not and cannot do this on its own)
