Robert Ford, who's idolized Jesse James since childhood, tries hard to join the reforming gang of the Missouri outlaw, but gradually becomes resentful of the bandit leader.
He was growing into middle age, and was living then in a bungalow on Woodland Avenue. He installed himself in a rocking chair and smoked a cigar down in the evenings as his wife wiped her pink hands on an apron and reported happily on their two ...
When the photographer photographs Jessie James's corpse, he replaces the lens cap on the camera and thanks everyone for standing still. He then removes the film holder from the back of the camera, without inserting a dark slide to protect the sheet of film. The film would have been ruined.

The film does not contain either an opening title nor intro credits. The film title is displayed first after the final fadeout.
