Back on the Jesse trail
The first ‘big’, adult or ‘A’ Western treatment of Jesse James was Fox’s Technicolor extravaganza in 1939, starring heart-throb Tyrone Power as Jesse and Henry Fonda as brother Frank. Jesse James was a huge hit. It was followed in 1940 by a Fritz Lang-directed sequel, The Return of Frank James (Fox, 1940).
