-Comment: Corey Sevier and other boys as well in bib overalls, also riding (other blog rating 6) and regular jeans and pants with suspenders. Western-like setting but set in 1910.

Handsome boy but I don’t like faded and hickory striped overalls.

Nice movie but rather poor plot and novel.

More infos and pics showing overalls on my other blog.

For now rating 3-4 only.

-Comment: At least this young boy with a white, high Cowboy hat, beige shirt, a red scarf and pants with suspenders in the 1983 “Milk is good” commercial. Also boys and girls in colorful bib overalls (other blog rating 6).

Maybe more kids in other commercials?

Rating 3-4 for now. I think my first commercial on this blog.

-Clothing occurence: medium+
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: At least these 2 older boys including Huckleberry Finn and probably Tom Sawyer? Nice hats and pants with suspenders.

As announced on my other blogs, I’ve found several interesting and rare Educational movies on YouTube, mainly from LCA (The Learning Company) and some from EB.

I only have checked this briefly. I think Huck is the older teen boy (older than in most adaptions). Maybe he later wore overalls?

3×26 minutes. Directed by Larry Yust. Narrated by Clifton Fadiman. No entry on IMDb.

Rating ~4-5 for now. There are better adaptions. I have several on my other blogs, mainly overalls and bedroom blogs.

Wikipedia says “Huckleberry Finn and the American Experience” but I think this is just the title of the 3rd episode. Better infos on worldcat.

Comment: A very young black boy (Rodney Allen Rippy) and a black man in faded blue bibs sitting on a wagon. I only noticed this very brief scene at 39 minutes.

Unusual, satirical Western. Quite interesting. And finally another Western with overalls.

But for this brief scene, rating ~2 only. The boy is also very young. Same rating and pic for my overalls blog.

Comment: Jay North in pajamas and Cowboy belt in s1e1 and at least another boy riding with a Cowboy hat in s4e11. Maybe some few more scenes in other episodes or later remakes. Also Jay North in bib overalls (other blog, currently rating 3, recently updated).

Great series and handsome actor, but probably very few Western scenes.

So rating 3 only. Series itself much higher. Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Comment: Some older boys including Stewart Petersen (“Where the Red Fern Grows (1974)” and Scott Petersen in Western clothes including pants with suspenders and large hats. Also some girls, obviously sisters or relatives in real life as well. Also riding scenes.

Interesting movie and family plot. Typical 1970s haircuts.

Rating ~6-7.

Pony Express Rider (1976) with Stewart Petersen also needs to be checked.
