  • We want to buy the series on DVD!

    "The Legend of Jesse James" was a good--but under-rated--TV western series with a fine cast of regulars and guests. Outlaw Jesse James was portrayed by actor Chris Jones ("Wild in the Streets") as a "Robin Hood" type largely the product of society--a makeover of historical fact well-suited to the 1960s and the modern era. This was Chris Jones first starring role. He was joined by a host of veteran actors, and Charles Bronson, Kurt Russell and Susan Strasberg were among the many guest stars. Although the series ran only one year, it has garnered a legion of devoted fans. This series deserves the full DVD treatment just as much as many other TV westerns, and we fans will not rest until we get it!
