9780786447886: Jesse James and the Movies

This illustrated filmography analyzes the plots and players of the more than forty motion pictures about the legendary Missouri outlaw Jesse James (1847-1882), from the silent era to the 21st century. Among the films and actors covered are Jesse James (1939) with Tyrone Power, Kansas Raiders (1950) with Audie Murphy, The Great Northfield, Minnesota Raid (1972) with Robert Duvall, and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) with Brad Pitt. Each evaluation compares Hollywood's version of history to the hard facts. A brief biography of the outlaw provides an overview of his life and career. Also examined are European films, made-for-television movies and continuing TV series that have featured Jesse James.

About the Author:

Johnny D. Boggs is an award-winning author of Western fact and fiction. In addition to his many novels, he has contributed extensively to such magazines as True West and Boys' Life. A past president of the Western Writers of America, he is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Review:

"A marvelous idea for a book! ... You'll even find a few Jesse westerns you hadn't thought about! Boggs' writing and analysis of each film is excellent and revealing." -- Western Clippings

"exhaustively researched .... Boggs ... understands perfectly that historical accuracy and entertainment value often have nothing whatsoever in common, but he's thankfully determined to test the facts in every movie he discusses, which is a history lesson in itself." -- True West
