Comment: Knut Mahlke (“Die Trapp-Familie”) and Michael Gebühr as young Cowboys with beige Cowboy hats and nice light colored, maybe yellow Western shirts with shiny parts.

I don’t know this movie and only found some pics. One showing Michael Gebühr is this

http://www.cinema.de/stars/star/michael-gebuehr,1595325,ApplicationStar.html

Knut Mahlke looking similar but even more handsome. I assume rather few scenes in a Circus. The movie is not on DVD. I hope for a soon broadcasting or upload. English title: The Dark Star.

Rating 5-6 for now.

-Comment: Jason Horst in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s4e10. I don’t like much this boy, but some very good jeans scenes near the end. Sorry, I don’t want to show too indescent pics. He’s also shown without the hat and sitting and cycling, I think not riding. Also a lady and men in Cowboy hats, woman also riding.

Has been aired yesterday. Very good ranch setting and scenes.

I think, I have to give rating 7.

Comment: Some boys in tight blue jeans and white Cowboy hats, and Scarlett Johansson and Ty Hillman in bib overalls (more pics and infos on my overalls blog, rating 5, mainly the girl, very few scenes of the boy). Also at least one lady (Kristin Scott Thomas) wearing a straw Cowboy hat. Of course riding scenes, but maybe not with boys.

Has been aired some days ago, but I almost missed it completely. I think rather few good scenes (of the boys). Best scenes probably at around 1h02.

Nice ranch movie. Rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.

Comment: At least redhaired Stephen Liss (I think in pic 2 with a cap) and another blonde, I think uncredited boy (brown vest and pants). To me it’s not a real Western, as obviously set in the mid 1920s (due to the cars).

I think rather few good scenes, but I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Pic 2 reminds me of The Music Man (1962).

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Redhaired Stephen Liss, ~10 yo  (“Flipper”, “Big Valley (1965)” The Good Guys and the Bad Guys (1969)” and some others) in a light blue shirt, light grey pants with suspenders and a dark brown (non-Cowboy) hat in episode “Cattle Barons” (1967).

Looks very interesting.

Rating 6 for now. I have to check his other Westerns, too.

I recently had a blonde boy in brown bib overalls on my other blog in s12e9 (rating 5).

Comment: 2 boys in bib overalls (other blog rating 5, soon to be updated), most notable one this boy in faded bibs and a straw hat at the beginning, the other in dark overalls but very briefly shown and some other boys in pants, some with suspenders.

All names are unknown/uncredited. Rather few scenes of the boys.

So rating 4-5 only.

Comment: Some boys and girls in typical Western clothes, this time inside a one-room schoolhouse in s19e13 (1973). One boy, maybe the main character in pic 3 might show William Shriver in beige pants with wide beige suspenders. One more pic of him on my bedroom blog (rating 5).

Some boys have longer (1970s) hair. I don’t like long hair but the boy in pic 1 is more of interest. Dark brown suspenders or even maroon. Older teen girls, but I think none in pigtails.

Comment: Several kids outside a one-room schoolhouse on a playground in typical Western clothes including a handsome blonde boy, I think Trent Lehman (1961-1982). S15e8 (1969).

Also a nice pigtail pulling scene while walking (other blog, rating 6). The redhaired teacher also has pigtails. No or few scenes inside the school, I think no kids inside.

I recently also had an update on my bib overalls blog (older blonde boy in s20e16, rating 5)

Interesting ranch series, nice jeans, rating 6-7 for now. But I don’t know the complete series. There’s also at least one teen girl in pigtails, soon on my other blog.

Comment: 14 yo Vincent Van Patten in light brown pants with suspenders and a white shirt in s18e03 (1972). Also in bib overalls in s19e4 (other blog rating 7).

Very handsome and teen boys are quite rare in Gunsmoke. But I think not with a hat and maybe not riding.

So rating 6-7.
