Rating: 3/4 -- Ray's pacing builds some good excitement, and as a western alone the film works nicely. But there are deeper things going on, some not entirely and successfully worked out. Full Review

Though hardly Nicholas Ray's sturdiest effort, this 1957 'Scope western began as one of his more ambitious conceptions, with an unorthodox narrative structure and deliberately theatrical sets. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- [S]hot through with moments of passion and visual grandeur.

Obviously the pair have a hard act to follow, but they manage it perfectly well, with Hunter particularly good in the brotherly sidekick role. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's still a stunningly inventive Western, with an offbeat, folksy feel.

[T]he result is splendid....[The film] remains an essential part of Ray's oeuvre.

A fine Western, the only regret being Robert Wagner. Imagining Dean in the central role makes it one of the great might-have-beens. Full Review

Description by

An account of the last eighteen years in the life of the notorious bank and train robber, Jesse James, and his brother and partner-in-crime, Frank.

Product Description:

After a detour into dramas such as REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, director Nicholas Ray returned to the Western genre with THE TRUE STORY OF JESSE JAMES. Robert Wagner (HART TO HART) starred as the title outlaw in this biopic that explored the man's origins as a criminal. Jeffrey Hunter strayed far from what would be his famous role as Jesus in KING OF KINGS to play fellow lawbreaker Frank James, with Hope Lange and Agnes Moorehead costarring as the most important women in James's life.
