Comment: David Ladd and Pam Smith in jeans. Nice ranch movie also with many supporting actors. Also riding scenes but maybe grown-ups only. I only have checked this briefly.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 5 and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~6.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully. Especially in the middle of the movie with the supporting actors.

Rating ~3-4 for now only. Typical Disney-like horse/family movie.

I’ve checked it long time ago and haven’t found better pics then.

Rating ~3-4 for now only. I think few good scenes.

Comment: And another, this time silent one from Our Gang. Nice Western costumes and plot. But the image quality is very poor. Not sure, if there’s somewhere a (slightly) better one available. Probably not or not much.

Pic 1 showing Joe Cobb and Farina Hoskins (also recently on my bib overalls blog, long johns and overalls), pic 2 showing red-haired and freckled Mickey Daniels on right (my favourite, beige hat also around the neck) and probably Mary Kornman in the middle. On left maybe Johnny Downs?

Rating at least 3-4.

Comment: Alfalfa and his older brother Harold Switzer singing “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” in Western clothes. High pitched.

Quite interesting. I like this song (for more infos in other movies see my bib overalls blog).

Rating 3-4 for this one. Alfalfa also colorized in maybe same clothes (including chaps) one year later

Comment: At least this young girl and lady in Western clothes including white Cowboy hats. Pic 1 from ep 1136 (1989), pic 2 from ep 1135 also showing Justin Gocke but not in Western clothes. Also nice jeans scenes of him, especially in ep 1100. He should also wore bib overalls, but I haven’t found any scenes, although I had briefly checked all 194 episodes starring him between 1987-1992. I haven’t checked the earlier and later episodes/seasons.

Probably very few scenes.

The girl pictured is Kala Savage as Anisa, daughter of a bar man, the lady Robin Mattson. The western bar is called Le Corral.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

Comment: 8 or 9 yo Jack Davis as William S. Hart in chaps and a Cowboy hat. Also riding. But rather few and brief scenes in the middle of the movie.

There are many more Cowboy/Western scenes in other Our Gang movies. I recently bought a silent compilation. Also on my overalls blog, this movie rating 7.

For the Western scenes rating ~2-3 only.

Best if of course Alfalfa (colorized) in Fishy Tales (1937) and/or other movies.

Comment: At least Bryan Russell in a short, dark grey or similar suit (knickers ?) and also in beige or similar pants and a red shirt. Also in blue jeans, but I missed these scenes and later only found a pic. Pic 1 from a short clip or trailer. The complete movie, I only found in a very poor quality.

I found it by coincidence. Obviously rather few good scenes of the teen boy. I also don’t like him. Starring Roddy McDowall and Karl Malden. Early 1840s setting.

So rating ~3 only. He also starred in some few other Western series. But I don’t have any, yet.

Comment: Searching for Gentle Ben (1967), I found s1e12 starring Ron Howard. Beige pants and different shirts. Very good and even better, a blonde boy in s3e22 (John Daniels?) and a dark haired boy in s1e25. Also Sheldon Collins in s1e5. Surprisingly no suspenders.

I have to check more episodes and have just checked the pics on IMdb, there are also some ladies in Cowboy hats. Riding scenes but unknown if boys or women as well.

Rating ~5-6 for now.

Update: The Lone Hand (1953)

lonehand1953nlonehand1953n2

I have rechecked this movie for my bib overalls blog and I didn’t remember, that I already had an entry here as well.

Handsome boy, nice clothes including vest, hats and bib overalls, also riding scenes (pic 1). There’s also another boy (see my other blog).

Unfortunately, the image quality of this clip is quite poor.

Main entry, rating 5
