good follow up to Jesse James
The first western directed by Fritz Lang and it wouldn’t be his last. Henry Fonda returns as Frank James and so do several other cast members like John Carradine and Henry Hull. There is a new cast member played by Jackie Cooper who is playing Jesse James grown up kid. This one starts out with Frank wanting to give up bank robbing until he hears about Jesse getting killed and then going after the Ford brothers who killed him. The Ford brothers, by the way, are putting on a show about how they killed Jesse.

Frank doesn’t have that much money so he decides to rob a bank and a man is killed by the posse but they think Frank did it. There’s more to the plot by you can find that out for yourself. This is Gene Tierney’s first film and in this movie Frank had to avenge Jesse’s murder without actually killing anyone himself, do to the strictures of the censors.

Follow-ups are usually disappointing. This one is no exception!
Disappointing. After some rousing music under the credit titles and a brief snip of Ty Power being gunned down by John Carradine, there is very little to distinguish this movie from other westerns of the period, beautifully photographed though it is.

Despite all its defects, the original Jesse James is still the better film. This sequel is surprisingly talky and has not a great deal of action, and the few spurts of action it does have just cannot match the original – the best is the sequence in the theater but even this doesn’t have the tumult, the excitement it should have.

The chases try to duplicate King’s by having sound effects and no music but they are tame. The film also suffers by the casting and the writing of the Ben Cooper character who is made to seem not only conventional but unsympathetic.

On the other hand, Henry Hull does come across just a shade less fulminating here and is all the better for it. The climactic courtroom scene with the exchanges between Hull, Barbier and Hicks is the most entertaining and gripping in the film. But still westerns fans didn’t come to see a good courtroom scene.

Gene Tierney looks nice though and Donald Meek carries forward his characterization from Jesse James. Fonda is much the same but unfortunately there is no Randolph Scott to help him carry the film. True, the film has some great re-creations and lovely photography, but on the whole, it’s a bit disappointing, with not enough action, not enough guts, not enough vigor, not enough style!
