-Rating: 3/10

-Comment: I think Noah Ringer in medium brown clothes and a dark brown hat. Pic 1 at 1h09.

Had been aired some days ago and I thought I already had this. Very rare and interesting combination of a western and horror movie.

But somehow I don’t like this actor. He also looks much older than 12 yo.

Also starring Paul Dano (L.I.E.).

Good plot and some interesting violent aliens scenes. But rating 2-3 only.

-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 2/10
-Rating: **
-Comment: At least one darkhaired boy (and his older sister, who had been kidnapped) in light brown pants with a belt,a purple shirt and a dark brown jacket. Scene from the end of the movie. Film #8 in this series. English title “Winnetou and the Crossbreed”.

Had been aired some days ago but I only have seen the end.

For some reason I don’t like Winnetou at all and I have never read the famous novels by Karl May.

I assume rather few good scenes of the boy. Somehow it don’t look like really western style. Though famous movie and famous (German) actors.

Rating 2 only.

Lost in Space (1965)


Sci-Fi series starring Bill Mumy
-Year: 1965-1968
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing:  Will ~12
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: yes
-Clothing occurence: very low
-Rating: 5/10 *
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Billy Mumy with a grey cowboy hat and a beige jacket in the final episode of season 2 (s2e30).

He is still wearing his orange space pants. He is playing a director for a stage play his younger sister and Dr. Smith do. (The others not in real cowboy clothes).

I like this series especially the silver space coveralls (season 1 is in b&w). But it’s also funny and timeless.

He also starred in the western series “The Virginian” aka The Men From Shiloh” I posted yesterday by coincidence. I will search for him soon.

Unfortunately only a short scenes with him here in that cowboy outfit at the beginning of this episode.

So rating 4-5 only.

The Virginian (1962)


Western series aka “Men From Shiloh”
-Year: 1962-1971
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing:  Andy 14 ?
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: A young blond boy, probably 13 or 14 yo Kurt Russell in typical medium brown pants in ep “Brothers” s4e1 (1965).

I found this short scene by coincidence on YouTube during research. He also starred in s3e8 “A Father For Toby”.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Also starring redhaired 12 yo Billy Mumy in s3e28 (1965). By coincidence I’m currently watching “Lost in Space) where he is also shown in cowboy clothes in one episode I have seen yesterday (entry coming next).

I have to check more from it but I assume rather few interesting young actors.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Cutter’s Trail


TV western starring John Gavin
-Year: 1970
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing:  Paco ~14 ?
-Available on DVD: no
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 2/10 ?
-Rating: **
-Comment: A Mexican looking boy in typical Mexican clothes including a straw hat (also without it). Probably it’s Manuel Padilla Jr. (He looks much younger here). He starred in “Scarface” (1983), A Man Called Horse (1970), Tarzan (1966), Gunsmoke, Bonanza and others.

This was on my rare movies list on my overalls blog. I wasn’t sure if this western might include bib overalls, but obviously it didn’t. I recently found one short clip on YouTube.

Honestly, I prefer blond actors, jeans or overalls and the like.

So rating 2 for now only.

Hank Zipzer


Family series
-Year: 2014
-Country: UK
-Who in clothing:  boys, girls ~12
-Available on DVD: no ?
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low *
-Rating: 3/10
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Several boys and girls in both British school uniforms and cowboy hats and scarves at the same time. Girls mainly in settler’s hoods and ties. Episode 11 “The Week” which is about an American week at school.

Quite funny family series (also on my bedroom and bib overalls blog).

But I don’t like the main character Hank nor his younger sister in overalls. School uniforms are the main problem of British series. At least another UK entry and girl entry.

Rating 2-3.

Roughshod (1949)


Western starring Robert Sterling
-Year: 1949
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing:  Steve ~14
-Available on DVD: yes *
-B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 7/10 ?
-Rating: *******
-Comment: Blond and tall Claude Jarman Jr. (“The Yearling”, 1946) in jeans and a cowboy hat. Also riding.

Looks very interesting. Maybe I have seen this movie long time ago but can’t remember. Unfortunately the YouTube videos showing different movies. Directed by Mark Robson.

I think there’s  no official US DVD release, obviously just DVDr (image quality ?). There’s also a Spanish DVD release.

I have to recheck this movie the next broadcasting.

Rating 7 for now.
