-Comment: 10 yo handsome Lee Aaker (“Hondo (1953)” and some other entries I have) most of the time in a medium blue Cavalry uniform and mostly with a black hat and long leather boots. Somehow it doesn’t look like a real Western to me (no Cowboy hat). So I haven’t made a post earlier. I don’t like the uniform. Also some other kids including Indian boy Pokiwah (also shirtless like in s1e25) and some other boys.

Originally filmed in b&w. Also (few) riding scenes. But I don’t know all episodes.

Pics taken from Spanish YouTube clips, might be a different episode number. Pic 1 from s1e3 showing him without the hat. Pic 2 nice riding scene from the German compilation DVD (Rin-Tin-Tin im wilden Westen, 3 ep), Pic 3 showing another boy, from s1e23, pic 4 from the German DVD, pic 5 from s1e22 showing Rusty in other clothes.

Maybe I have to make more posts.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: Six, mainly younger boys in different clothes, I think 2 in bib overalls (blue and brown). I found this pics in a YouTube clip titled s20e02 A Town in Chaims. I was sure, that I already had this episode and found these boy on my bib overalls blog in s20e13 The Colonel (rating 4), probably this is the right episode numer. One boy is 8 yo Todd Lookinland, brother of Mike, both in “The Brady Bunch”.

Interesting scenes. 2 more pics on my other blog.

Rating 5.

Comment: At least this uncredited boy in blue or grey pants (no suspenders) also at least a lady with a white Cowboy hat, Barbara Britton and I think Dorothy Hart as well.

I found this some time ago but don’t remember much. I assume very few good scenes.

Rating 3-4 only. Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Comment: 14 or 15 yo Ron Howard in medium brown pants with matching suspenders, a beige shirt and light brown hat. Also shown without the hat. Several scenes, maybe also riding.

He appeared in some other entries, I have. (Blog search)

Somehow, I don’t like him here. So rating 3-4 only. I prefer him in The Andy Griffith Show. Pics from a 1967 episode on my overalls blog under “Gentle Ben”.

Comment: By coincidence, I stumbled again on this series. Pic from a YouTube demo reel (unknown episode).

I don’t remember the complete series. But I assume very few Western clothes scenes.

So rating 3 only. Movie itself a higher rating. Handsome blonde boy. Some good scenes.

Also on my bedroom blog since 2012, rating 6.

Comment: Some kids (different age, boys and girls) on a playground, probably in front of the school in different clothes. 1971 episode The Lost.

I haven’t made more caps from this episode, probably only few good scenes of the kids. Some pants and clothes here look more like the 1970s.

Kids starring are Terri Lynn Wood, Jon Jason Mantley and Laurie Prange, rest uncredited.

Rating 3-4 only. There are better episodes, although some older kids here. Main entry

Comment: Knut Mahlke (“Die Trapp-Familie”) and Michael Gebühr as young Cowboys with beige Cowboy hats and nice light colored, maybe yellow Western shirts with shiny parts.

I don’t know this movie and only found some pics. One showing Michael Gebühr is this

http://www.cinema.de/stars/star/michael-gebuehr,1595325,ApplicationStar.html

Knut Mahlke looking similar but even more handsome. I assume rather few scenes in a Circus. The movie is not on DVD. I hope for a soon broadcasting or upload. English title: The Dark Star.

Rating 5-6 for now.

-Comment: Jason Horst in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s4e10. I don’t like much this boy, but some very good jeans scenes near the end. Sorry, I don’t want to show too indescent pics. He’s also shown without the hat and sitting and cycling, I think not riding. Also a lady and men in Cowboy hats, woman also riding.

Has been aired yesterday. Very good ranch setting and scenes.

I think, I have to give rating 7.

Comment: Some boys in tight blue jeans and white Cowboy hats, and Scarlett Johansson and Ty Hillman in bib overalls (more pics and infos on my overalls blog, rating 5, mainly the girl, very few scenes of the boy). Also at least one lady (Kristin Scott Thomas) wearing a straw Cowboy hat. Of course riding scenes, but maybe not with boys.

Has been aired some days ago, but I almost missed it completely. I think rather few good scenes (of the boys). Best scenes probably at around 1h02.

Nice ranch movie. Rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.
