This movie looks at the last years (not days, as implied in the title) of famous outlaws, Frank and Jesse James. The film opens in 1877 with the brothers trying to settle down after 15 years of thievery. Frank is shown to be a book-loving and family-oriented man, while brother Jesse is a money-hungry womanizer. The movie follows their lives through Jesse's death at the hands of the "rotten little coward" Bob Ford and Frank's death in 1915.Written by

Frank James is taught the hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross", but this was not written until 1912. While Frank lived until 1915, Jesse was killed in 1882, and Jesse is still alive when Frank learns the hymn. See more »
Once you get past the fact that both Kristofferson and Cash were more than ten years to old to play the parts of the James Brothers and June Carter playing their mother when she was about the same age and husband Johnny you will enjoy this film.
I have seen so many films about the notorious brothers, some good, some bad but I enjoyed this one. I believe it was fairly accurate. Sure as another reviewer said neither actors are Oscar winners but they played the parts to the best of their abilities and to say Kristofferson is the worst actor in the world is a bit harsh.
It comes on TV fairly regularly so give it a chance when it does.
