B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: very low
-Rating: 6/10
-Rating: ******
-Comment: 7 or 8 yo Joey Lawrence in beige Cowboy clothes in 1984 ep s3e19. Also wearing chaps. Not sure of his pants, probably jeans. Few scenes and only one brief scene with the hat.

Also 6 yo Matthew Lawrence in blue bib overalls and also a teen girl (overalls blog rating 4). Publicity pics of Joey in overalls but I haven’t found any in the series.

Rating 5-6 only for the brief scenes.

-Who in clothing: girl Sam 9, woman
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 2/10
-Rating: **
-Comment: Karis Paige Bryant (“Charmed”), around 8 or 9 yo as 8 yo Sam in faded blue jeans and also in blue and red bib overalls (overalls blog rating 4) also riding on a mechanical bull with a Cowboy hat but shown from a distance. Also a woman riding with a Cowboy hat.

Good baseball scenes of boys and girls at the beginning.

Typical drama and ranch movie. I prefer males.

So rating 2-3 only.

Sorry, I’m currently too busy for checking more real Westerns.


Update: King of the Wild Stallions


Finally, I have received this DVD. Rating (8)-9 was correct. Jerry Hartleben “3:10 to Yuma” is indeed very good and many scenes in different clothes with him. (Of course jeans and bib overalls would even be better.)

Beige, soft cotton pants with and without red brown suspenders and Cowboy hat, green shirt and some other interesting pink and flowerded shirts. Also the other half in soft, grey, checkered cotton pants, I think riding in both.

I prefer the beige pants but also good sitting in the grey ones (rear view) and often been trapped in the butt crack. Riding scenes mainly from a distance.

Good scenes at 18 minutes, 34-41, 57 and also later. I have seen the complete movie once at regular speed but will rewatch it again soon and at slow speed. Pic 2 is at 18 minutes, pics 1+4 in the middle, pic 3 near the end.

DVD is a RC0 DVDr with excellent, remastered image quality. No extras. The main plot is quite good, partly Lassie-like and including a wild horse, but somehow it could have been made better. I wonder if anybody buys this not because of Jerry.

Main entry (nothing much there)

-Comment: One update of this series. Ep: Runaway Renegade (s1e2). Next to Nancy Gilbert as young Calamity Jane there’s also a teen boy, probably 15 yo Sammy Ogg (“The Adventures of Spin and Marty“). But he wears a typical shirt not that western / rodeo style like the girl.

Rating 3-4 for this episode. Main entry, currently rating 3 as well at

-Rating: ***
-Comment: Molly McGowan (1946-1965, pic 1+3) in nice rodeo-like Western clothes including a light blue blouse with dark blue shoulders, a yellow scarf, blue jeans and Cowboy boots (also shown shirtless). And an older blonde girl (probably her sister in real life Melody, pic 2) in similar but red clothes and both with a Cowboy hat. Also a woman (Claire Kelly) in jeans and Cowboy hat riding. Not sure if the girls riding as well.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Obviously a quite good family Western.

I don’t know boys in there.

So rating 3-4 only.

-Comment: Clay O’Brien again in this episode. This time wearing typical dark brown pants. With and without a flat hat. With and without a dark brown and a green jacket. Several good scenes.

In s18e1+2, so one year earlier he wore light blue bib overalls, even shirtless rating 9.

Handsome blonde boy. He also appeared in The Cowboys (1972) rating 6. And LHOTP rating 9 as well (1975).

He also appeared 1973 in Cahill U.S. Marshal (rating 5), The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975) rating 5 and some other movies and series. To check: One Little Indian (1973), Mackintosh and T.J. (1975) and Climb an Angry Mountain (1972). Hog Wild (1974) is still on my rare movies list (overalls blog) with a wet, barefooted and shirtless boy in overalls (O’Brien ?)

Rating 8-9 for this episode. Main entry (rating 9) with some other kids
