American Experience: Jesse James DVD
SKU ID #332463
The story of Jesse James is one of America's most cherished myths, but the truth of his life is totally different than the tall tales told about him over the years. In reality, his life was steeped in violence and bloodshed. In a fitting end, like so many of his own victims, he was unarmed and shot in the back. Narrated by Michael Murphy, this episode of PBS's "American Experience" separates the facts and fictions of America's so-called Robin Hood through archival material, dramatic re-creations and interviews with historians and scholars.
