Jesse James Rides Again is a 1947 American Republic Western film serial.


Gunfighter Jesse James is framed for a Missouri bank job and murder by a black-cowled outlaw gang, known as "The Black Raiders". Unable to clear his name, him and companion Steve Lane, whose father was murdered during the bank robbery, flee to escape the posse. They ride into a town where they receive shelter from Ann Bolton and her elderly father, Sam Bolton, whose ranch is being regularly attacked by The Black Raiders. The same gang are led by Frank Lawton, who in turn had been hired by James Clark, a businessman. Through him, The Black Raiders attempt to drive the Boltons and other farmers off their land because of localized oil reserves in the area.



Jesse James Rides Again was budgeted at $149,967 although the final negative cost was $180,497 (a $30,530, or 20.4%, overspend).[1]

It was filmed between January 10 and February 5, 1947.[1] The serial's production number was 1696.[1]

This was one of only four 13-chapter serials to be released by Republic. Three of the four were released in 1947, the only original serials released in that year. The fourth serial of the year was a re-release of the 15-chapter, 1941 serial Jungle Girl. This marked the first time Republic had re-released a serial to add to their first run serial releases.[1]


Special Effects

Special effects were created by the Lydecker brothers.



Jesse James Rides Again's official release date is 2 August 1947, although this is actually the date the sixth chapter was made available to film exchanges.[1]

The serial was re-released on 28 March 1955 between the first runs of Panther Girl of the Kongo and King of the Carnival.[1]
