how accurate was the 1939 movie
of frank & jesse james

a tall tale ~ a scam
the pinkerton were searching all over missouri for jessse james.
no one would tell the pinkerton anything.
except that jesse james had golden blond hair and bright blue
the pinkerton were fooled
the truth came out when jesse james was killed
the local newspaper extra - april 5 1882-
"well he did have sandy hair and blue eyes when
he was a boy - as he grew older his hair turned dark"
the scam was over
the adult jesse james had dark hair and average color eyes
the eyes were reflecting the color of the background
