    “Posse” is the only one of these movies I saw.
    I wonder if any of the others are on DVD. [Who owns the copyright release of the other films.] Very important.

    I seen a number of these movies – but you forgot about “Bass Reeves the search for Dozier”. I have seen the trailer for a 2013 movie but is looks like a remake of the DVD I have owned for about 10 years. It is a great movie if you can find it.

    No mention of the “B” movie Cowboy Charlie that made the rounds of military bases in the early 70s. I am sure it never played in theaters. Every white person in the film was shot down.
