Black Cast Westerns

United States - 1937
Director - Sam Newfield

United States - 1938
Director - Richard C. Kahn

United States - 1939
Director - Richard C. Kahn

All three of these films star French-Canadian/Ethiopian Jazz musician Herbert (Herb) Jeffries. He and director Kahn did a third movie together called The Bronze Buckaroo in 1939. That and Harlem Rides the Range are available from NetFlix. Two-Gun Man From Harlem can be bought on DVD. No sign of Harlem On the Prarie, VHS or DVD, but that second one sure is a purty poster.

Thanks, good to know. I have a hard time keeping up with all the SWV releases.
