Jesse James - preview

  • Aired: 01/30/2012
  • 00:30
  • Rating: NR
The story of Jesse James remains one of America's most cherished myths... and one of its most wrong-headed. A product of the American Civil War, James was less heroic than brutal; America's own Robin Hood who robbed not only the rich, but the poor and defenseless as well, always saving the treasure for himself. 5/7/2013
