Goofs

Western gunslingers were traditionally very "monogamous" about their firearms (i.e., they strongly preferred not to use or retain other people's guns in favor of their own personal weapons that they were accustomed to using; think Billy The Kid in Howard Hughes' "The Outlaw"), so it is unlikely that Jesse would have casually holstered Jim Clark's oversize revolver instead of his own handgun in the film's final shot.

Standard Republic Serial
9 January 1999 | by Harold-10See all my reviews

Another cliffhanger from the formula. Clayton Moore plays Jesse James, who leaves Missouri to hide in Tennessee (I think) where he uncovers a plot to move farmers off their land so the "bad guys" can drill the large reservoir of oil underneath. In other words, Jesse James is a good guy, and no one in town knows his identity, except for farmer Linda Stirling and her crippled father. Along with his trusty side-kick, there are fights-a-plenty, chases and explosions, too. But all in all, this is very mediocre, even for a cliff-hanger.
