Overview

Donald Barry plays the legendary outlaw of the title in this Roy Rogers Western which, needless to say, plays fast and loose with history. Returning to Missouri from the gold fields of California, Gabby Whittaker (George "Gabby" Hayes) is persuaded by his granddaughter, Mary (Pauline Moore), to deposit his earnings in the Northfield bank, which is then promptly robbed. Assigned by the Bankers' Association to track down the presumed culprits, Jesse James and his brother Frank (Harry Worth), Roy Rogers soon learns that the Jameses are innocent in this particular crime, which was instead committed by the bank's greedy president, Sam Wyatt (Arthur Loft). Before Rogers can capture the wily banker, he must contend with the interference of Captain Worthington (Harry Woods), a railroad detective more interested in pocketing the 50,000-dollar reward than see justice done.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
There is quite a bit of gunplay in Days of Jesse James but only one song. This is early in Roy Rogers' career, of course, before Republic Pictures turned him into a screen version of the Grand Ole Opry. He handles himself well and is awarded good support from a stellar cast of Republic veterans, all of whom had done this thing many times before. In a surprising bit of casting, seasoned villain Harry Worth, sans his trademark mustache and billed for unknown reasons as Michael Worth, turns up as Donald Barry's brother. The two would meet again the following year in Barry's breakthrough serial Adventures of Red Ryder, in which they were on opposite sides of the law.
