Storyline

Jesse James leaves Missouri for Mississippi, and immediately charms all the women in Mississippi out of their bloomers and garters. His first conquest is the banker's daughter who helps him loot the bank in exchange for a promise of marriage; he wanders over to the saloon and runs the crooked partner of the proprietress out of town, takes all of his-and-her money and leaves her, between kisses, hounding him for her share; the third one, the saloon singer, actually makes a mark out of him as she cons him into a boxing match against a professional fighter and he loses the fight and his money, but he holds the singer and the fighter up as they leave town and gets his money back; and then he romances and swindles Cattle Kate, a replay of what he had done somewhere before to Kate and the "gotcha-again" Kate even ends up behind bars. But no film that contains a cat-fight between Peggie Castle and Lita Baron can be called a complete waste of time. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Cringe-worthy OR a missed opportunity for soft-core pornography
29 January 2011 | by peapulationSee all my reviews

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. And I have watched Dwain Esper films, and loads of shitteos and exploitation films. But this is boring, dull and yet it really does seen to qualify under the label of 'EXPLOITATION'.

In this film, Jesse James is a slimy creature that tricks women to get his money. Not at all what the legend depicts the famous outlaw as. Not only that, but these women all fall for him, and fight over him, and it's all just demeaning and incredibly sexist.

Furthermore, there is a whole sequence where you can see one after the other be knocked down by his 'charm'. No kidding, I thought all that was missing was the sex scene that would have made this an early porn feature, predating that likes of Deep Throat and Vixen...or even Lonesome Cowboy. (The most notable sequence is a cat fight between two women, which Jesse James ends...hear ye hear ye...by pouring beer over them). Oh yeah! I must admit, towards the end, the accents made me smile. I won't spoil the ending for anyone - which would be a real shame - but I will say that the screaming woman at the end I thought was so funny, trying to convince the sheriff that that man is Jesse James. But in all honesty, this is an awful, awful film that should not be watched by anyone - ever!
