Description by OLDIES.com:
An account of the last eighteen years in the life of the notorious bank and train robber, Jesse James, and his brother and partner-in-crime, Frank.
After a detour into dramas such as REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, director Nicholas Ray returned to the Western genre with THE TRUE STORY OF JESSE JAMES. Robert Wagner (HART TO HART) starred as the title outlaw in this biopic that explored the man's origins as a criminal. Jeffrey Hunter strayed far from what would be his famous role as Jesus in KING OF KINGS to play fellow lawbreaker Frank James, with Hope Lange and Agnes Moorehead costarring as the most important women in James's life.
