The Notorious Jesse James
28 August 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Days of Jesse James finds Roy Rogers as a peace officer on the trail of the selfsame outlaw who's getting accused of a lot of things due to his notoriety.

In fact that's what's happened here. A banker and his son decide to ripoff their own bank and their depositors and pin the crime on the notorious Jesse James. Roy's also in competition with railroad detective Harry Woods who is after the James gang.

Woods is rarely on the side of the law in westerns and he's barely on the side of it here. With his character and with Jesse who is played by another of Herbert J. Yates's cowboy stars at Republic, Don Barry, the film this most resembles is 20th Century Fox's epic western Jesse James which came out the same year.

Roy's limited to only one song here and there's more emphasis on plot than you'll find it most B westerns. Actually the film bares more of a resemblance to a Randolph Scott product than a Roy Rogers western and that's to its credit.

Still the legion of fans for The King of the Cowboys will love it.
