Storyline

In this one, the father of Jesse and Frank James is unjustly hanged by Union troops and their mother's arm is amputated after their home is bombed by Union people, so they go riding with Quantrill's Raiders and Cole Younger and Belle Starr. Jesse and Frank argue a lot and then Jesse marries Zerelda 'Zee' Mimms, but true-history had long flown out the window by that time. Actually, history departed before the first reel was over. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Young Jesse in Drag-briefly
29 September 2007 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

I like to think I am an appreciative viewer, one drawn to a range of films. This effort starts off in typically abusive scene fashion and creates the thematic need for revenge. From then on, it rumbles into trite pap. Now pap can be entertaining and *slight spoiler alert* the image of a young Jesse James decked out in a dress and head gear is worth some of my time. And perhaps yours. I'm not sure if this flick is revisionist history (because I actually caught it on Canada's History Channel) which either gives it a credibility beyond reason or the programmers at the History Channel are so consumed by humor that the joke outweighed any common sense or talent they might have. Anyways. the lovely Merry Anders does a turn as Belle Starr and the fierce Emile Meyer absorbs the role of Quantrill. All in all, a wet Saturday afternoon diversion. Who could ask for more?
