The Reviews for The Return of Frank James (1940) 1080p


Fantasy About Jesse's BrotherReviewed byhrkeplerVote: 6/10

'The Return of Frank James' is sequel to 'Jesse James' where Henry Fonda reprises his role as Frank. The film follows Frank's life after his brother Jesse is killed by the Ford brothers, and his chase of cowardice gunslingers. John Carradine (probably one of the greatest coward in Western history) again plays Bob Ford, and these two great players are supported by magnificent cast - Gene Tierney in her first film role, Henry Hull and Jackie Cooper.

Visually striking (like one can expect from Lang movie), but substantially shallow, and historically incorrect, but whole lot of fun. This film is probably one of the best examples of mindless popcorn movies of 1940's. But it also proved that lighthearted westerns were not Fritz Lang's strongest genre.

Nice sequel to a great westernReviewed bynnnn45089191Vote: 6/10

The sequel to the immensely popular "Jesse James" (1939) as helmed by director Fritz Lang, finds Henry Fonda reprising his performance as Frank James in an entertaining,but routine revenge western.Also from the earlier cast we have Henry Hull,J.Edward Bromberg,John Carradine and Donald Meek.Jackie Cooper as Fonda's sidekick and the beautiful Gene Tierney are nice additions to the cast.Shot in subdued Technicolor,the movie has some nice outdoor visuals.Although not as good as the previous movie,it has its memorable moments:Frank James catching up with his brother's murderers performing a highly theatrical reenactment of Jesse's killing and the final shootout in the stable are the movie's highlights for me.
