I SHOT JESSE JAMES (1949)



I SHOT JESSE JAMES

Synopsis

The Old West's ultimate act of treachery is the murder of Jesse James (Reed Hadley) at the hand of his fellow outlaw gang member and best friend Bob Ford (John Ireland), who was tempted to commit the cowardly crime by the promise of amnesty and a $10,000 reward. But a day of reckoning lies ahead in Samuel Fuller's stylish directorial debut noted for its innovative use of close-ups.
