Where the legend ends, the story begins. The documentary, Jesse James, tells the true story of an outlaw who captured the imagination of generations of Americans. The myth of Jesse James is one of America's most familiar and most fictitious. He is known as America's answer to Ned Kelly or Robin Hood, however, James robbed from the rich and the poor with equal fervour.
