Posts from WaynamoJim in thread „Jesse James (1939)“

    Like many movies from back in the 30's and 40's, historical accuracy takes a back seat to great entertainment and, that's what this movie was, great entertainment. I always watch this when I run across it on TCM. Power and Fonda were perfect as Jesse and Frank, Nancy Kelly looked as good as ever, Henry Hull stole the movie as the newpaper editor and friend of the James brothers, Randolph Scott was Randolph Scott, and John Carradine, Donald Meek and, J Edward Bromberg were great as the sleazy trio of Bob Ford, Mr. McCoy and, the RR detective Runyan.
