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.
Western starring Roy Rogers -Year: 1946 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~8-16 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: often ? -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another interesting movie, starring Tommy Ivo and also several other (at least 13) boys and teen boys, including 15 yo Tommy Cook, 11 yo Johnny Calkins, 9 yo Teddy Infuhr, The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir (as Ranch boys) and others. Also at least 1 woman wearing a Cowboy hat.
Nice ranch and riding scenes and also showing chaps. Most boys wearing jeans, chaps and hats.
Rating at least 6-7. But I only have checked it briefly. Unfortunatley the movie is in b&w.
There are different DVDs available, I can’t say about each image quality. At least some are DVDr. PD Movie. 68 minutes and 54 minutes cut. So watch out.
Western series starring William Boyd, 52 ep -Year: 1952-1954 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Tommy ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another series starring 11 or 12 yo Tommy Ivo. Pics from s1e19 (1952) in which he only appeared. I don’t know the complete series. Maybe some more actors of interest?
Rating 6 for now.
There are also several other, earlier Hopalong Cassidy movies of the 1930s and 1940s which I don’t know. Like Texas Trail (1937) with boys (Billy King) and women.
Western starring Charles Starrett -Year: 1950 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Todd ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium- -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another movie starring Tommy Ivo. Probably filmed earlier as he looks younger than 13 but rather 10 or 11.
At the beginning completely in black clothes including a black hat and a black scarf over his mouth, also riding and then sitting inside (pic 5). In the middle of the movie dark or black pants and a lighter shirt (according to colorized pics light green or red on others). And a beige hat (pics 1-3). At the end in a checkered shirt and riding as well (pic 4).
Although b&w very interesting. But I think rather few scenes with him.
Rating at least 6-7. Available on DVD. 55 minutes only (what was usual these days).
Western, William Powell -Year: 1952 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: David ~15 ? -Available on DVD: VHS *
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium+ -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Tommy Ivo in different clothes. Pic 2 might be sleepwear (long johns ?) Also a blonde young boy at the beginning.
As announced, I checked some more of Tommy Ivo. I found some few movies b&w, but most are not Westerns (My Three Sons, Lassie). Some, I have on my other blogs like Belles on Their Toes, Father is a Bachelor, I even own on DVD also starring Gary Gray). I found this one on archive.org. Movie should be into Public Domain. Officially only on VHS. Some DVD offers available, not sure about their quality.
Rating 6-7 for this. More movies coming later.
He also starred in Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (currently rating 7)
Western series, 78 ep Jock Mahoney -Year: 1951-53 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girl, women -Available on DVD: partly
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: At least a pigtailed girl, some boys and a lady in good Western clothes. But I don’t know all episodes.
Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here
Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.
Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.
