The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

"Beyond the myth lies America's greatest betrayal"

Everyone in 1880's America knows Jesse James. He's the nation's most notorious criminal, hunted by the law in 10 states. He's also the land's greatest hero, lauded as a Robin Hood by the public. Robert Ford? No one knows him. Not Yet. But the ambitious 19-year-old aims to change that. He'll befriend Jesse, ride with his gang. And if that doesn't bring Ford fame, he'll ...

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When Jesse goes looking for Jim Cummins he introduces himself as "Dick Turpin". Dick Turpin was a legendary English rogue and famous historical highwayman romanticized in English ballads and popular theatre of the 18th and 19th century. Dick Liddil introduces himself as "Matt Collins", which is actually a play on the name of Liddil's wife, Mattie Collins.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the scene where Jesse is shot By Robert Ford, his wife is laying over him screaming and crying. The whole while Jesse's eyes are closed, at one point they cut to Robert, and cut back, Jesse's eyes are clearly wide open. They cut back and away once more and his eyes are closed again. (Possibly deliberate choice by filmmakers, to indicate Ford's state of mind.)
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Robert Ford is working in the general store, a bicycle leans against the wall. It's supposed a Highwheel, Ordinary, or Pennyfarthing bike. However, it's a contemporary model, intended for use by circus and parade riders, and only superficially similar to a period bike.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In every scene where Jesse smokes a cigar, the length of the cigar as well as the size of the ash at the foot of the cigar varies tremendously across shots. Such variation cannot be accounted for by normal burning off of the cigar as one smokes it.
