Storyline

After an eccentric old woman comes to the town of Nichols claiming that in her youth she nursed a wounded Jesse James after he was shot by the cowardly Bob Ford and that the infamous outlaw is still alive, Sheriff Nichols takes a road trip on his signature motorcycle to confirm or debunk this extraordinary tale. On route he is sidelined by a con man (Jack Elam) who overhears about Nichols quest for James. Eventually, they meet the old gunslinger or do they? At one point on his road trip Nichols disguises himself as a parson. An alternate title for episode 19 is "Man of the Cloth." (Charles McGraw, who played Hansen in the Gulley vs. Hansen episode, plays "Jesse James.") Written by DBF
