Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The title doesn't tell all in Jesse James vs. the Daltons. For one thing, hero Joe Branch (Brett King), is suspected of being Jesse James' son. Not knowing the truth of the situation, Joe joins the Daltons, hoping they'll lead him to Jesse -- but only if rumors are true that the elder James is still alive. Producer Sam Katzman manages to toss in stock footage from several earlier westerns, while director William Castle endeavors to bring coherence to this patchwork affair. The best performance is delivered by James Griffith as the sharkish Bob Dalton.
