Movies Out of Order
I was wondering why the Jesse Stone movies, the first two at least, were released out of order. "Night Passage" should have been the first movie, since that shows Jesse leaving Los Angeles to become police chief of Paradise. But "Night Passage" was the second movie made, released in 2006. "Stone Cold" was released first, in 2005, and in that movie Jesse is already established in Paradise, with character relationships already in place. Those relationships were created in "Night Passage".
I don't know if they weren't sure that more Jesse Stone movies would be made, and thought "Stone Cold" was a better story, but I think "Night Passage" is just as good. It strikes me as very odd that they did those two movies in reverse order.
