iMovie does not allow any editing or splitting of clips in events. You can only do this in a timeline. Consequently if you want to split or shorten a clip you have to do it before importing into iMovie. Quicktime 7 or Quicktime 10 are able to do this.
Your movie is very big becasue of the high resolution. You can make it smaller using a lower resolution. There is a share to email option. I would not share to Theater - it creates several different version s of the movie and slows things down a lot.
If you only want to share the movie at original resolution and not do any editing, why not simply upload it directly to Dropbox (i.e. not via iMovie) , splitting it first if your Dropbox capacity is not big enough?

Thank you for your prompt reply GeeD
Beats me how I did that in the past with an earlier version?
I still can not stop the "Share Failed notice" Really anoying.
Would removing the Theatre file stop it.
I am wondering why Apple has a split clip on the menu?
Anyway I will try as you have recommended and thank you again for your help.
Your reply was good and not too technical.

iMovie 9 did allow trimming of clips in events.
I'm not sure about the share failed notice. Sharing to file and not to theater seems to be the most reliable.
Sometimes failure to share is due to something bad in a project. Duplicating the project twice, deleting different halves from each and trying to share half at a time may result in one half sharing the and the other not. In this case one can eventually find the problem clip.
The split clip option applies only to clips in the project timeline
