Joe Branch (Brett King), reputed to be the son of Jesse James, comes riding into Coffeyville Kansas in 3-D, looking for proof one way or the other regarding the question of who is father was. He rescues Kate Manning (Barbara Lawrence) from being lynched by a mob because she had killed the son of the towns's leading citizen while defending her honor, or what was left of it. Rescuing Kate is an important plot hinge, in a movie that makes little or no sense historically or plot-wise, as her father had ridden with Jesse James. Joe also has an idea that he can learn something by making contact with the Daltons, and his method of doing that is by holding up the train to steal an Army payroll, as he knows the Daltons had intended to steal it themselves and knows they will come looking for him. Being smart enough to beat them to the payroll evidently doesn't equate to being smart enough to know the Daltons are going to be more than a little miffed when they find him. The title is a misnomer ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Blah western, nothing to recommend it
2 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Producer Sam Katzman was from the "make 'em cheap and grind 'em out fast" school of film-making, and his output was so prolific that once in a while one of his films actually turned out to be pretty good. This low-rent western isn't one of them. The script is soggy, the acting is atrocious, the action is limp, the direction is almost non-existent--even the color is washed out. The lamest of westerns usually has at least a halfway decent supporting cast of veteran character actors to take your mind off of how lousy the rest of the movie is, but apparently ol' Sam didn't want to spring for the money it would have taken to hire those types of competent actors, as most of the unknowns he has here don't cut it. Originally shot in 3D--as is evident by all the objects, including falling bodies, thrown directly at the viewer--but even that gimmick couldn't help this lumbering mess. It has absolutely nothing to justify wasting your time on it.
