This program will cover Jesse James’s life from his service as a Confederate guerrilla to his postwar career as bank and train robber. He will answer questions such as: how many robberies did Jesse carry out and was Jesse really killed by Bob Ford? (Spoiler alert: he was.) He will also cover some of Jesse’s best-known imposters. In the last half of his talk Jim will discuss the more than fifty movies and television shows about Jesse starring actors ranging from Roy Rogers to Brad Pitt. Some of the movies were good, some were bad and some were worse. You be the judge!
