    Excellent movie. Do you think that it was based on Shane ?

    Unless you consider that every western was "based on Shane" it wasn't even close. Shane was a gunfighter trying to go straight on a hardscrabble farm. The Pale Rider character "Preacher" was a kind of mystical reincarnation based (loosely) on a Biblical prediction. Actually Pale Rider had almost the same plot as "High Plains Drifter".

    All Westerns were based on the same plot. High Noon, The Mag 7, most of Duke Wayne's stuff including the laughable similar plots of the Dean Martin drunk sheriff and the Robert Mitchum drunk sheriff. there is no reason to lump the quasi mystical Pale Rider with the Shane character (Alan Ladd was so short that they had to pose him on a box for some scenes) unless you want to.
