The Return of Frank James
Director Fritz Lang made his first foray into color with this gritty Western starring Henry Fonda as Frank James, who sets out to avenge the killing of his brother, Jesse. Accompanied by young sidekick Clem (portrayed by child star Jackie Cooper), Frank sacrifices his life of anonymity to hunt down Bob Ford (John Carradine), the backstabbing coward who murdered Jesse in exchange for a pardon. Gene Tierney makes her film bow as a nosy reporter.
