Watch Alias Jesse James
Hollywood has made a number of movies about Jesse James. The interesting thing about Alias Jesse James is that it approaches its topic from a comedic point of view. The movie is a 1959 comedy starring Bob Hope and Rhonda Fleming. Hope plays an insurance man named Milford Farnsworth. He sells an insurance policy to the famous outlaw without knowing that it is Jesse James. Farnsworth resembles James, and this gives James the idea to kill Farnsworth and pass off as himself in order to collect on the insurance policy. The scheme does not go as planned. This is a fun movie for Bob Hope fans.
