Canadian kids film
Year: 2001
Country: Canada
Who in clothing: boys, girls ~8-14 ?
What clothes: Indian costumes
Available on DVD: yes

I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurrence: low+ ?
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Some boys and maybe girls at least in Indian costumes. I think no Cowboys but other enemies with helmets.

Remake of “The Dog Who Stopped the War” aka “La guerres de tuques”, both produced by Rock Demers. Some humilation and also romantic and funny scenes, but there are better movies. Film aka “The Hidden Fortress” and “La forteresse enchantée”. Film series “Contes pour tous” # 20. Starring Matthew Dupuis and Xavier Dolan, but mostly lesser known kids. The 1984 prequel is much better.

Also a teen girl in bib overalls, recently updated on my other blog, rating 5.

Comment: Must be 12 or 13 yo Canadian David Kaye in blue bib overalls (pictured) at the beginning of the movie, sometimes with additional Cowboy clothes but also without. Also in a brown jacket and black hat. Maybe also other actors?

From my overalls blog.

Not bad, but I think rather few scenes. Sorry, I don’t remember the complete movie.

Rating ~5. 6 on my other blog.

Comment: At least Sonny Bupp in different clothes including jeans, a large Cowboy hat, checkered shirt and a vest. Maybe chaps as well? But I don’t think so. Also doing farm work.

I only have checked this briefly.

Rating ~4-5 for now.

He appeared in several other movies, which needs to be checked. I just have

Little House on the Prairie – s2e11

lhotp-s2e11

And another episode of LHOTP. The Gift (1977).

Not sure about all the names. Willie Oleson in a black vest. The other boys also don’t have suspenders. More of interest here: the girls. Long blonde pigtails and nice dresses.

Also soon on my pigtails blog (with more pics). No (notable) bib overalls.

Main overview list here, rating up to 9

Little House on the Prairie – s2e16

lhotp-s2e16lhotp-s2e16b

And another LHOTP entry, I’ve checked some time ago.

Obviously, this is Brian Part as Carl Sanderson Edwards. Typical beige pants with suspenders and a blue checkered shirt. And also a grey or beige shirt or undershirt.

I also have him in the main entry (I discovered later).

Handsome actor. Rating ~6-7 for this 1977 episode. Pic 1 also showing Laura and probably Mary in dresses.

Main overview, rating up to 9

Comment: As announced, some handsome, young kids (boys and girls) acting here. Including ~11yo George Ernest (Georgie in “Our Gang”) in jeans and a checkered shirt. Others probably uncredited.

More scenes and better than the 1939 remake. Image quality is quite poor.

So rating ~4. 61 minutes. Available on DVDr. Maybe not officially. Not sure if it’s in PD.

For the more famous 1939 and 1952 remakes, rating 3 and 4, see

Info 36: New personal TOP-10

mytop10westerns2

As there were new entries added, I’ve updated my personal TOP 10.

New inserted are: LHOTP, Gunsmoke, (several episodes each) and King of the Wild Stallions. All rating 9.

Also rating 9 but not added is “The Lone Ranger (1949)”. Hondo (1953) and At Gunpoint (1955) are currently rating 8. Kidsongs and The Rifleman even rating 7.

Maybe I have to think about it. But maybe there are even better movies to come.

Removed were “A Gunfight”, The Phantom Kid (1977) and Kid il monello del west.

What clothes: costumes Indians
Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: low ?
Rating: 2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls ?) as Cowboys ? and Indians.

Typical costumes. I think few (good) scenes.

Also girls in bib overalls (other blog rating 2) and boys in speedos.

Correct title: Sreča na vrvici, English title: Hang on, Doggy.

Rating ~2-3. I don’t like the 70s. Not a real Wstern anyway. But could be worse.
