Storyline

Jesse James, retired and living under an assumed name in St. Joseph, Missouri, agrees over the protests of his wife Zee to join Bob Ford and Sam Wells in a Colorado gold raid. Jesse rounds up gunman Arch Clements; demolition expert Elias Hobbs, with suspect credentials as he later blows himself up; and get-away wagon driver Johnny Jorette. They rendezvous at Ford's saloon in Creede, Colorado, where Ford's girlfriend Kate joins the gang. Sam guesses Ford's plan to double-cross Jesse and collect a reward and Ford kills him. Lots of other people die before Jesse and Ford ride off in opposite directions. This was made shortly after Tom Neal, in real life, nearly killed Franchot Tone in a fight over Miss Payton, so when she sings (unless she was dubbed) "That's the Man for Me" in this film, it appears to be heartfelt.

Uninspired horse opera
29 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Jesse is talked into saddling up for one more bank job, in this lackluster event from budget producer Lippert. Routine story is hampered by the illusion that none of the actors really want to be here; this one just lacks enthusiasm. Parker, as Jesse, who can normally be counted on for top-notch performances walks thru this one as if asleep. And that's where this movie will put you.
