Alias Jesse James Overview:

Alias Jesse James (1959) was a Comedy - Western Film directed by Norman Z. McLeod and produced by Bob Hope.


Hope stars as a mild-mannered life insurance agent holding Jesse James's policy, sent to the Wild West by his company to protect the outlaw from hired guns. Things get fun when James decides to collect on his own policy by setting Hope up as himself. This farcical spoof on Western flicks is loaded with star cameos.
