The Range Rider (1951)


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.

For now rating at least 5-6.


Happy New Year 2018!

-Comment: Ryan Wynott in pants with suspenders, a red shirt and a Cowboy hat. Also at least a girl (Jada Facer), man, woman and many others wearing Western clothes and hats.

By coincidence even a Christmas movie. And very nice Western setting.

I only have checked it briefly. Kids don’t appear that often.

Part of the Love Comes Softly movie series. Here I only have

Love’s Abiding Joy (rating 5) but this movie here has even better Western scenes. More movies on my bib overalls blog.


I have to recheck it more carefully also for other actors.

Rating ~5 for now.


What Love Sees

Who in clothing: boys ~9-11
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: ****
Comment: Some few ranch boys, most notably this boy riding in a nice Western/rodeo shirt. Also starring 9 yo Courtland Mead in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4). Also starring Richard Thomas (The Waltons).

I only have rechecked it at high speed and only noticed few good Western clothes scenes.

Set between 1940-1959. Picture maybe in the late 50s ?

So rating 4 only.

-Clothing occurence: often
-Rating: 7/10 ?
-Rating: *******
-Comment: Roddy McDowall in faded jeans, sometimes also riding (at 20 minutes) and with a white Cowboy hat. Some nice sitting scenes. There are also some scene of a very young girl (but not of interest).

Thanks very much Jody, for his comment and photo album (where pic 1 is from).

Nice movie and handsome actor, but somehow I don’t like him that much. It’s also not a real Western and no typical Western clothes except for the hat (which I didn’t remember and so haven’t made a post earlier). Luckily already in color.

Rating 6-7 only. I have to recheck the complete movie at slow speed.

-Comment: At least 2 boys in Western clothes including Cowboy hat and yellow string tie. Also at least one boy riding and at least one older girl in light blue jeans sitting on a fence (ep 2). One boy is ~10 yo Canadian Johnny Washbrook, probably on the right.

I don’t know all episodes. Pic 2 from ep 5, pic 1 from ep 4

Rating 5-6 for now.

Much better is of course the 1943 movie starring Roddy McDowall (coming soon).  Thanks Jody for his comment and albums and other suggestion.
