The true story of the legendary American outlaws. From 1866 to 1882, Missouri's Frank and Jesse James led a gang that robbed banks, held up trains and became the most famous outlaws in American history. After 15 years of thievery, the legendary outlaws are trying to settle down. This is the last years of the brothers' lives, revealing Frank (Johnny Cash) as a book-loving and family-oriented man and brother Jesse (Kris Kristofferson) as a money-hungry womanizer.

    4Excellent Cast and More Than Usually Truthful About The Last Days Of The James Boys
    By Marjorie C.
    It was pretty truthful about the last days; however, Frank James did not just have one trial. He had I believe three and was found not guilty in all of them. As soon as one finished, he was handcuffed again and put on a train to go to another State in the South. The people of the South would never find the James Boys guilty of anything. They did not consider them bandits, outlaws or thieves. They were good Southern boys still fighting the Civil War long after it was over. Jesse was also never a womanizer. He greatly loved his wife, Zee and his son, Jesse James, Jr. The boys had been raised by what I would now call a Southern Baptist preacher and they knew The Good Book better than anyone. Frank did have a love of reading books. There were approximately 456 nickel novels written about Jesse and Frank that had no truth to them at all. Frank had buried some gold he honestly found but when he went to get it the land had been plowed and his markers destroyed. It's still down there some place. The cast was outstanding in every way. Everyone with their spouses were buried on The Old Home land where they were raised. Frank and his wife were cremated. Their original father, split for the gold mines and disappeared. Mrs. James married another Pastor that helped raise her boys. It was the Pinkerton's that blew off her hand and killed her youngest son when they threw a bomb into her house.. She was played by June Carter Cash if you were wondering why she only had one hand.

    5This is the Jesee James movie filmed in Springfield, Tennessee, in the 1980s
    By NUMB3RS NUT
    If you're from Middle Tennessee and remember a Jesse James movie being filmed in the area in the 1980s, this is the one you're remembering. It was filmed in Springfield, Tennessee.

    As they filmed, they covered all the streets with dirt and painted the facades of the buildings to fit the late 1800s. Many locals worked as extras in the film.

    This is a great gift for Jesse James fans in Middle Tennessee - and especially Springfield.

    4Great Look At The Last Years of Frank and Jesse James
    By Ernie McHone
    The James Gang has emerged as one of the most notorious outlaw gangs in American History. For years, Frank and Jesse James stayed one step ahead of the law, and were never caught.

    Country music superstars Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson are the title characters. Both were pioneers in the country music outlaw movement and play their roles with not only charm but a lot of heart as well. I must say that I've always been fans of their music, and this film is one of the best adaptions of the James tale.

    We all know how the story ends, and this film takes us about six years before the death of Jesse James and a little while thereafter. Does Frank James get his revenge on the coward that murdered his brother? Just watch and see! Highly Recommended.
