The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Movie Summary
Super fan, Robert “Bob” Ford joins Jesse James’ gang during an 1881 train robbery in Missouri. He joins his brother, Charlie, who is already part of the gang. This is the last train robbery the James brothers plan to commit, and Frank leaves them after the heist.
Jesse takes the rest of the crew back to Kansas City. There, he sends Charley, Wood, and Dick Liddil away to his sister’s farmhouse, but has Bob stay as his minion. This only serves to encourage Bob’s fanboydom. Once Bob serves his purpose, Jesse sends him to the farmhouse as well. There, Bob learns that Liddil and Jim Cummins plan on capturing Jesse James for the reward money.
During a chat with Ed Miller, Jesse learns of the plot to capture him, and Jesse kills him. Then, he takes Liddil with him to Jim’s farm where Jesse beats Albert Ford, Bob and Charlie’s very young cousin, in order to learn Jim’s whereabouts.read full summary
