The Reviews for Jesse James (1939) 1080p


Entertaining over-wrought Hollywood claptrap!Reviewed byMartinHaferVote: 6/10

Of all the films Hollywood made during the golden years, my least favorite were ones that played very fast and loose with the facts about the Old West. And, of all the Westerns, those about Jesse James as well as the gunfight at the OK Corral are the worst. Think of it from my point of view. I am an American history teacher and for some bizarre reason, I like my historical films to actually bear some semblance to what actually occurred!!

JESSE JAMES, like all these other films, is a historical nightmare from start to finish. The life of this evil killer and thief is practically impossible to discern in this silly but entertaining film from 20th Century-Fox Studios. Instead of a bad man, according to the film, he is unfairly pushed to a life of crime by an evil railroad AND he and his brother, Frank, are good boys at heart!! With such stupid revisionism, we should soon expect to see films where Hitler, Lee Harvey Oswald and Jeffrey Dahmer are heroes!! There are tons more mistakes about the characters--but simply too many to bother mentioning. In fact, what is NOT wrong would be quicker and easier to discuss!! Additionally, there are just every cliché known to Westerns, such as the shootout ("count three and fire"), Frank giving the town an ultimatum to give him back Jesse by midnight "or else", happy and intensely loyal Black servants, the Robin Hood-like quality of the gang (though at least they showed how eventually he became more of a hardened criminal), the death of Frank and Jesse's momma pushing them to crime, Henry Hull's character from start to finish as well as his comments like "Jesse played fair" and "he was one of the gol-dangedest gol-darnestest buckaroos"!

As for the non-historical aspects of the film, there is a lot to like. The film is shot in glorious Technicolor and the camera work is incredible. I especially loved the extremely difficult shot of the nighttime raid on the train--the moving external shot was NOT an easy thing to do and it looked great. Additionally, being an A-picture from the studio, the cast was spectacular--Tyrone Power (Jesse), Henry Fonda (Frank), Henry Hull (playing a role much like you might expect Walter Brennan to usually play), Randolph Scott, Jane Darwell, Donald Meek and Brian Donlevy make for an excellent cast. And, I must admit the film was fun to watch if you could care less about the facts and just want to be entertained. Unfortunately, for folks like me, it's a chore to watch even a well-made film if it's so historically inaccurate.

By the way, it should also be mentioned that according to the IMDb trivia section, this film should be remembered for its total disregard for the welfare of the horses during filming. In exciting scenes, horses actually died to make the shots look good and although I am NOT a bleeding-heart, I just can't help but be appalled with this disregard for the animals. Not surprisingly, this film led to changes in the industry to protect animals in future films.

yet another Tyrone power winnerReviewed byrickdumesnil-55203Vote: 9/10

simply loved the movie. let me start i absolutely was grateful that the black character PINKY was treated so nice. one of the rare Hollywood movie where the boss didn't boss around and took time to chat. the scene when Jessie ask pinky if the baby is cute....simply breath taking. the scenery the acting especially by power Fonda Scott darwell and hull you cant ask for more. NANCY KELLY was touching but for me she seemed plain and not so pretty. of course i didn't want Jessie to die in the end and his reunion with Jessie Jr. was simply well done and tear jerking. i gave it a 9 and took off 1 point because of the handling of the horses. how cruel. i just MR. POWER was against it but had no choice. good movie though glad i got the DVD....POWER FOREVER.

Very good film marred by animal crueltyReviewed byA_Kind_Of_CineMagicVote: 4/10

This film was a very enjoyable and accomplished western with Tyrone Power doing well and Henry Fonda great as always and other cast generally good and plenty of entertainment.

However, there is a 'stunt' in the film where horses go off a cliff and in fact they really rode horses off a cliff to their deaths. Apparently the horses were blindfolded. This is totally unnecessary cruelty purely for entertainment. It might make for a good stunt scene but there is no excuse for such cruelty.

It is tempting to mark the film as a 1/10 for this but I will still acknowledge all the good there is in the film and not artificially reduce the mark to a 1 even though my feelings on animal cruelty of this kind are very strong. I take into account that other films contain animal cruelty behind the scenes that we may be unaware of, particularly before this time but even in recent times (Water For Elephants is a recent film in which apparently an elephant was cruelly treated in real life).

One good thing is that this cruel stunt received a strong reaction from the film industry which brought about the creation of new rules to protect animals in film. So in fact, as well as being an important film cinematically and in re-establishing westerns as box office successes, this was very important in bringing about less cruelty to animals in films.

Taking all this into account I will reduce my rating from the 8/10 it would have been, down to a 4/10.

Very sad.
