The Centennial State is the official nickname of Colorado. In 1876 it became the 38th state of the United States of America. These movies have a connection with Colorado. It's a topic in the story or they are (partially) filmed in Colorado.
Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Colorado?

“True Grit” needs to be removed from your list. Why? It may have been filmed in Colorado, but the story takes place in Texas ( the beginning parts that set up the situation) and the Indian Territories or Indian Nation (as mentioned in the film and book) which is the state of Oklahoma. Go ahead and look up the history of Oklahoma. Indian reservations comprise a large chunk of that state, almost the whole state. That is probably why all the states surrounding Oklahoma becomes states, I think decades, before it did. It is one last three or four states to enter the union. The book and movie constantly refers to locations within that state and refers to the state as the Indian nation. “True Grit” is more associated with Texas and Oklahoma than Colorado.

Arkansas, not Texas. My mistake. Every place mentioned in the book and film are real places within Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Dardanelle, Arkansas
Yell County, Arkansas
Fort Smith, Arkansas

And since the FBI didn’t exist at the time of the setting of the book and movies, I believe only the U.S. Marshals and the United States Calvary were the only law enforcement besides the tribes own police force, allowed to set foot on the Indian territories of Oklahoma. That is why Mattie had to get the help of a U.S. Marshal , Rooster Cogburn, to hunt down Chaney in Oklahoma Indian territory, and LaBoeuf, a Texas Ranger, had to join the posse as a private citizen. LaBoeuf didn’t have jurisdiction.

Thanks! You’re right. Great information as well. I just saw the original True Grit a few weeks ago. Didn’t knew that.
I replaced this movie for RV (2006).
