This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. I collect here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings.
TV Western series 1955-1975 -Year: 1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: John ~13? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: very low * -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: One older boy, I think this is Wendell Baker (aka Wendel Baker) in this episode in a brown suit, hat and string tie. I only noticed one very brief scene at the beginning.
Finally an “older” boy in this series. Quite handsome, but I prefer shorter hair. That hairstyle somehow reminds me of Ian Tracey as Huck Finn in 1979.
I don’t like these clean suits. Don’t look like real western clothes (pants with suspender or overalls). Few scenes, so rating 3 only.
He’s credited on IMDb as “man” even years earlier, so probably again a mistake, mixing up different actors of the same name.
Christian family series, 243 ep., 11 seasons -Year: 1996-2007 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Sam, David ~9 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: very low -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: At least the twins Sam and David (played by Lorenzo and Nikolas Brino, in fact the Brino quadruplets playing them) in checkered shirts and white cowboy hats in s10e19. Maybe other kids as well (Simon ?) in earlier episodes? But obviously very few scenes as this is not a Western series.
What else to say? Very good series (overalls blog rating 7) and bedroom blog rating 6 (the twins and others rating 4).
TV Western series 1955-1975 -Year: 1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Johnny 10, Andy 12 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium * -Rating: 4/10 (6) -Rating:**** -Comment: Again Ike Eisenmann (pictured in s18e18) this time in a medium brown jacket and dark brown short pants and a string tie and white collar. Even better is 12 or 13 yo Willie Aames in s18e19 in beige bib overalls (see that blog rating 6). Both in many scenes in that episode.
Dramatic scenes in s18e18 but I prefer the funny scenes in s18e19. In s18e18 there are also 2 girls (different age) in long dresses and some other supporting actors (boys) but few and brief scenes and from a distance.
Western series starring Lorne Greene -Year: 1959-1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Tommy ~6 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 4/10 -Rating:**** -Comment: Blonde Teddy Quinn as deaf-mute boy Tommy in s8e14 (1966). Typical brown clothes (pants and vest) and a red shirt. He also starred in s11e3 (1969, needs to be checked) and in other series like “The Virginian (1962)” rating 4 starring Bill Mumy and Kurt Russell.
Comedy stage play broadcast -Year: 1963 -Country: Germany -Who in clothing: Peter ~15 -What clothes: jeans, hat, western shirt -Available on DVD: yes -B&W or color: b&w -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: very low -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: Peter Garbas around 15 or 16 (exact age unknown) in dark (blue ?) jeans, a checkered shirt a Cowboy hat and carrying a rope. Brief scene around in the middle of the movie. Also in a long sailor suit (that blog rating 3 as well) and a long white night shirt.
As announced on my other blog a quite good and funny play. Many scenes in jeans and that shirt but mostly without the hat and rope. Set in Hamburg in the presence (1960s).
Family horse movie -Year: 1996 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Biddle ~13, girl -What clothes: jeans, hat, western shirt -Available on DVD: yes -B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium -Rating: 7/10 -Rating:******* -Comment: 13 or 14 yo Kieran Culkin (pic 1) in a Western shirt and blue jeans and a Cowboy hat riding and cycling. Also a girl with blonde pigtails (and of course many other supporting actors). Set in the 1950s.
Very interesting. I like ranch and rodeo movies and also like the Culkin brothers.
As usual I have only checked it at high speed. Obviously worth buying (or waiting for a broadcasting and record it or watching online).
Rating 7-8 for now. Obviously many scenes not wearing Cowboys clothes and hat.
Also now on my bedroom blog, rating 8. And soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~6.
TV Western series, this s1e15
-Who in clothing: Timmy ~15
-What clothes: shirt, hat
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low *
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Comment: Lee Erickson (“The Seven Little Foys” 1955, Lassie 1954, Devil’s Canyon 1953, The Kentuckian 1955 (rating 5), Buffalo Bill Jr. 1956 (coming soon)), in dark pants (probably jeans) and a medium colored shirt. Also riding. He only starred in s1e15.
He’s quite handsome but quite old (for a western kid), around 15 or 16. In other, earlier movies or movies in color he’s much better. Maybe more actors of interest in other episodes. I don’t know the complete series. 227 ep.
