Jesse James is a western film directed by Henry King and starring Tyrone Power, Henry Fonda, Nancy Kelly and Randolph Scott. Written by Nunnally Johnson, the film is loosely based on the life of the notorious outlaw from whom the film derives its name. It is "notorious for its historical inaccuracy." The supporting cast features Henry Hull, John Carradine, Brian Donlevy, Jane Darwell and Lon Chaney, Jr.. The American Humane Association began to oversee filmmaking after a horse died when it was driven off a cliff on set.
