If you've ever wondered what motivated Frank and Jesse James to lead a life of crime rather than settle down on the family farm, this movie explains it all.
A union soldier is killed while brutally questioning the James partners as to the whereabouts of Frank, a Quantrell Raider. The soldier's brother, Union office Major Trowbridge, swears himself to a lifetime chase to bring the James boys to justice.
The James brothers are thus hounded away from a respectable existance to a life of banditry with the Younger brothers and others. Wendell Corey and Macdonald Carey playing the James brothers are completely believable in theor rolls as the farmboys-turned-outlaws. They maneuver crisply through the fast, furious action, from the bank holdups that follow the raids against the James family, to the violent train robberies, to the fast-paced flights through rugged terrain, to the more intimate family and romantic incidents.
Ellen Drew and Lois Chartrand are convincing as the girl's who marry Jesse and Frank respectively. Director Gorden Douglas skillfully swings the footage through the film's series of exciting episodes.

This film is not about the Missouri Raid and is a revised version of the James legend. For example, not Jesse, but Frank is the gang leader. They and the others in the gang are good people. The gang started after they tried to give up after the Civil War, but a Union major ignored the government’s pardon and did all he could to kill them in revenge for them killing his brother. It is he, not the Pinkertons, who are against the James gang, first as an Army major and then after being kicked out the Army as the head of his own Detective Agency. The gang members who want to live in peace have their homes burned. The mother of the James boys has her arm cut off. Jesse's girl, later his wife, is insulted. Frank and Jesse are blamed by the major for robberies they did not commit. And there are many other revisions.

I saw this movie one time on Encore's Westerns Channel and I thought it was a great movie about the infamous James brothers and the man who swore to bring them to justice. If you want to know about the James Gang, and if you're want a solid gold western, give this movie a try. Please release this priceless gem on DVD soon.I recemend it to all western fans.
