The similarities between the book, and the movie were almost just your typical similarities. The Outsiders movie, and book I found to have more differences than similarities. I would prefer the book than the movie any given day.

After the death of “Bloody Bill” James would fill the role of the avenger of not only “Bloody Bill” but also of what he thought to be the victimization of the Confederacy by the Union government. His role as the avenger was parlayed into his role as a noble brigand almost immediately after the death of Bill Anderson. As the James brothers began their careers as robbers the first bank they robbed was chosen because it was believed the man who killed Bill Anderson was a teller there. When the teller was killed and revealed to have been innocent in the killing of Anderson, James began to be viewed as a thief and murderer by some of the public. As a result, Jesse is believed to have written a letter to the Governor pleading his innocence; calling on the Governor to understand that as a bushwhacker he would not be allowed a fair trial and the bank robbery as a false accusation aimed at bringing James to justice for the deeds of his past.

It is not a coincidence that the police officer involved in this case fabricated the evidence for his own reward. Subsequently, imprisoning an innocent man who desperately wanted to go home but was coerced to confess to a crime he did not commit.
