When George Stevens Jr. was a boy, he was enthralled with Jack Schaefer's western novel "Shane"--so much so that he shared his excitement one evening with his father, Oscar-winning director George Stevens ("A Place in the Sun," "Giant"). "He was sitting in his bed at the house--I remember it so clearly--and he said, 'Tell me the story,' " Stevens Jr. recalled recently. "I remember walking around his bed trying to tell him the story of 'Shane.' I saw it as a good yarn."
