-Comment: Several (I think 10) boys and teen boys in different western style clothes mainly in brown color including hats. Some few in bib overalls (also see my overalls blog rating 4).  Also few scenes with boys in chaps. And riding scenes.

Probably the most famous western where many kids playing the main chararcters and plot. However there are some movie starring kids only (see tag).

Very interesting movie and I’ve seen it at least twice. But some time ago. So I have to recheck it more carefully. But I remember some few very good scenes and handsome blond boy actors including Sam and Clay O’Brien.

Also a very interesting bunkhouse scene with bunk beds and boys in long johns and other nightwear (bedroom blog, rating 8).

2.20:1 and 2.40:1 Panavision widescreen. Not a real western but more a coming-of-age cattle drive adventure.

Good movie, but I think few overalls and jeans scenes. So rating 5-6 only.
