The Legend of Jesse James...Starring Christopher Jones
5 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Although this tv western was filmed in black and white, the colorful portrayal of Jesse James through the talented efforts of Christopher Jones makes this western series stand out. The fact that this show only ran for one year still remains a mystery since Mr. Jones received an unprecedented amount of fan mail weekly while the show was on the air. With a supporting cast which included Allen Case (who also starred in The Deputy and Police Woman) and Ann Doran (who also played James Dean's mother in Rebel Without A Cause), the show also boasted among its guest stars Ann Southern, Jack Elam and Susan Strasberg. I believe the fans of this show need to speak out and let 20th Century Fox know that we would like to see this series released on VHS or DVD; or perhaps shown as reruns on one of the cable channels that supports older tv shows.
