The Reviews for Jesse James (1939) 720p

A highly romanticized account of the infamous desperado?Reviewed byNazi_Fighter_DavidVote: 8/10

Splendid in his first Western and his first Technicolor movie, Power portrayed Jesse James as a sympathetic hero and the most charming bank robber of the Old West?

Teamed with Henry Fonda, and stalwart Randolph Scott, Henry King came with a Western classic, considered as one the best Jesse James of the series?

The film opens in Pineville with hothead Jesse and temperate Frank as a couple of Missouri brothers who, embittered by the ruthless tactics of a railroad agent, got a warrant and had to skip out, hiding out until Major Rufus Cobb (Henry Hull) can get the governor to give them a fair trial ? But the railroad's got too much at stake to let two farmer boys bollix things up?

After they had thrown Barshee (Brian Donlevy), the brutal railroad representative off the farm of their widowed mother (Jane Darwell) when she refused to sign over her property, Jesse and Frank later learn that she had been killed by a bomb tossed into their home by Barshee himself? Jesse returns, shoots Barshee, and vows revenge on the railroad, with the complete sympathy of the Missouri populace?

Jesse's sweetheart, Zee and her uncle, publisher Major Rufus, are among the James' supporters, as is U. S. Marshal Will Wright (Scott), but he has a job to do and is forced to track down the two brothers?

Jesse and Frank have expanded their operation from merely harassing the St. Louis Midland with a series of holdups to robbing banks?

Pursuaded by railroad president McCoy (Donald Meek) to talk Jesse into surrendering, Wright extracts a written promise of a light sentence for the desperado? Zee then urges Jesse to give himself up following their wedding?

Of course, Henry King tries to show how Jesse hated the railroads and from that hate he presented a charismatic hero? But this hero was not going to last? The more luck he had, the worse he gets? It'll be his appetite for shooting and robbing until something happens to him?

He also shows a worried fiancée keeping thinking of an outlaw all the time out there in the hills just going on and on to nowhere just trying to keep alive with everybody after him, wanting to kill him to get that money?

There's a scene near the end where Zee (Nancy Kelly) after delivering her baby is lying in bed with her creature, with the presence of the Marshal, so to speak, between herself and her uncle that suddenly made clear to me what the entire film was about? Her feelings as a woman: "I'm so tired to care. This is the way it always is. We live like animals, scared animals. We move. We hide. We don't dare to go out? "

Obviously she is a sensitive woman who exposes her being on screen without losing sight of reality? That's quite a great scene from King, and key in this great Western, as it's really all about her character, Zee Cobb, a struggling woman in love now a mother with a baby to take care of?

So please don't miss it!

Art is simpleReviewed bydeickosVote: 8/10

This film's beauty is that it is so simple. This is by far the best version of the Jesse James story - there is not a sign of formalism as is regularly seen in later westerns, especially modern ones. When you are able to tell a story the way Henry King does, simply and clearly, then you begin to discover many other stories inside the main one. And then you know you have the original, the prototype.

Dated, but still worth seeingReviewed bytmwestVote: 7/10

Jesse James was one of the first westerns made in color, and this feature made it look actual during many years. Nowadays it looks dated, but this gives it a certain charm, you can compare it with the early western printed stories that glorified outlaws and gunfighters. There is a lot of Jesse's life missing here, where are the Younger brothers and what about the civil war? Henry Hull gives a good performance as Major Rufus,but he keeps repeating himself about the editorials, that is funny up to a certain point, then it gets tiring. Henry Fonda does not have much of a chance to act, his role is secondary,but he is excellent as Frank.
