"adventures" sequel to Jesse James Rides Again
19 September 2007 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

Adventures of Frank and Jesse James was released in 1948, the same year as the celebrated hoax of Jesse returning from the dead. Seems some old codger out in Missouri, obviously a JJ fan, turned up saying that he was the real Jesse James and another man was buried in his place. Clayton Moore wears the same outfit as he did in the 1947 JJ Rides Again, a black frock coat and a flat brim hat. In the 1948 serial, he wears a floppy brim Stetson and bat wing chaps to match the footage of Don "Red" Barry in the Red Ryder serial. Steve Darrell (Frank James) wore the buckskin outfit of Hal Taliferro, Barry's sidekick in the serial. While Moore may have extricated himself from on screen perils by rolling aside, his athletic ability in JJ Rides Again saved his life when a burning wagon tipped over too close for comfort. The JJ serials were not meant to be taken for historical accuracy, just a way to take a familiar Western historical character and change him for Hollywood. Just like the Buster Crabbe Billy the Kid features.
