Betta St. John,
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

William Castle directed this Western for Columbia about a young man (Brett King) who believes he's the son of Jesse James. The man seeks out the help of the Dalton Gang in hopes of finding Jesse who humor has it is still alive. This is certainly a "B" film but it does have a few good things going for it. Castle's direction is better than average, although he's really not given too much to work with. The screenplay is lazy to say the least and the leading man is as dull as anything. Another positive is the Technicolor, which leads to some good looking scenes. The film was originally released in 3D, which is obvious from all the things flying at the screen. This isn't a bad film but it's only for Castle completest.
