| Young Jesse in Drag-briefly
I like to think I am an appreciative viewer, one drawn to a range of films. This effort starts off in typically abusive scene fashion and creates the thematic need for revenge. From then on, it rumbles into trite pap. Now pap can be entertaining and *slight spoiler alert* the image of a young Jesse James decked out in a dress and head gear is worth some of my time. And perhaps yours. I'm not sure if this flick is revisionist history (because I actually caught it on Canada's History Channel) which either gives it a credibility beyond reason or the programmers at the History Channel are so consumed by humor that the joke outweighed any common sense or talent they might have. Anyways. the lovely Merry Anders does a turn as Belle Starr and the fierce Emile Meyer absorbs the role of Quantrill. All in all, a wet Saturday afternoon diversion. Who could ask for more?
