I Shot Jesse James

"OK"

I Shot Jesse James Review


Very dated but passable feature about the not-so-glamorous death of Jesse James, and the man who shot him in the back (Robert Ford). Interesting mainly because it's Samuel Fuller's first film, showing off a few of his trademark touches -- but not enough to make the movie stand on its own.
