1.
Billy Jack Goes to Washington (1976)
After a senator suddenly dies after completing (and sealing) an investigation into the nuclear power industry, the remaining senator and the state governor must decide on a person who will play along with their shady deals and not cause any problems. They decide on Billy Jack, currently sitting in prison after being sent to jail at the end of his previous film, as they don't expect him to be capable of much, and they think he will attract young voters to the party. Billy is pardoned, released and nominated, after which he begins his duties. He soon notices that things aren't right, and starts trying to find out just what is going on.

The family's estranged adopted son tries to stop his family's unethical plan and save them some other way.

Wild Bill: Hollywood Maverick (1995) as Himself
Presented by an impressive lineup of collegues and admirers, a documentary about the long-underrated talent of the late legendary action director William A. Wellman (1896-1975), one of Hollywood's most distinguished journeymen helmers. William A. Wellman drew on his experiences as a fighter pilot during World War I to create a series of films about men of action as rugged, sentimental, raucous and tender as the director himself. He was equally noted for his off-screen battles with executives; and after building his career at Paramount and Warner Bros., Wellman vowed never to sign another long-term studio contract, and went on his way, refusing to take guff from anybody!
