This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.
Western series, 452 ep, host Ronald Reagan -Year: 1952-1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~10-15, women ? -Available on DVD: yes, partly
–B&W or color: b&w, color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Some (teen) boys, girls and women in Western clothes.
I don’t know the complete series. There were many supporting actors. I only found some few kids including 12 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) in s18e4 (color) and Donna Corcoran and others in s2e6 Dear Teacher (pics 2-4). By coincidence I later found a boy (Danny Flower ?) in bib overalls in s13e9 (pic 1, more pics and infos soon on my overalls blog).
Pic 5 showing a young lady in a Cowboy hat in s1e15, maybe Sheila Ryan?
Rating at least 5-6 for now. More episodes needs to be rechecked. Only partly on DVD.
Disney film. Ron Howard -Year: 1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Chris 14 -Available on DVD: VHS only
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: ~15 yo Ronny Howard as 14 yo Chris wearing a black Cowboy hat, jeans and a beige shirt.
I don’t know/ don’t remember the complete movie. Obviously few Western scenes.
Western series starring Lorne Greene -Year: 1959-1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: teen boys ~14-18 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: often -Rating: 7/10 -Rating:******* -Comment: Next to Mitch Vogel, there are several other (famous) teen boys acting in this 1972 episode “The Initiation”. Ron Howard (pic 3 on left), Nicolas Beauvy (pic 2), James Van Patten (pic 4 on right ?), Alfred Barker Jr. and Sean Kelly (both also in “The Cowboys 1972” like Nicolas Beauvy), Jeff Smart (“Bless the Beasts & Children”) and some more.
Several scenes of them. Many wearing vests and hats.
I recently find this by searching for Hog Wild (1974) starring Nicolas Beauvy in wet bib overalls (other blog rating 7, still missing pics).
Adventure film. Disney-Land s24e2 -Year: 1976 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Davie ~13, Thud ~10 -Available on DVD: yes

Interesting, but typical looking Disney Western. I didn’t had the time yet to watch the complete movie.
Rating 5-6 for now.
For more infos and pics see my other blog.
Novel by Robert Lewis Taylor (“The Travels of Jamie McPheeters”, also “Guns of Diablo”
Johnny Doran also appeared in LHOTP (s4e6) and some other series like the “ABC Afterschool Specials” 1977 episode “The Pinballs” (bedroom blog, rating 7) and Salty, rating 6.
TV movie Jodie Foster. Disney-Land s16e18 -Year: 1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Mark 9, Jamie 14 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: often ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea, redhaired 14 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) and 7 or 8 yo Jodie Foster starring in this interesting looking Disney TV movie.
I haven’t seen it yet. Typical clothes of that time, pants with suspenders and hats. Also pajamas. I don’t like Mitch Vogel. Eric Shea I like more. He also starred in Gunsmoke, LHOTP and some other movies, I partly have on my other blogs (bib overalls and sailor suits).
Rating 6-7 for now. Probably there are better (Disney) movies.
Western series James Stacy, 51 ep -Year: 1968-1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Andy ~14, Willie 15, Willy 14, boys, girls -Available on DVD: no *
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 7/10 ? -Rating:******* -Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Bill Mumy as Andy (pic 1) in a light blue shirt, beige pants with a belt and a grey Cowboy hat. Pic from s2e3 The Kid. Also Clint Howard as Willie in light blue bib overalls in s2e14 (pic 4, soon also on my overalls blog). Very interesting episode is s1e25 with many kids (mostly uncredited on IMDb) in and outside a school (including girls) and ~14 yo Ron Howard (pic 3 standing in light blue jeans) and also a young blonde boy in pants with suspenders.
Lots of guest stars including Victor French, Jonathan Harris and many more. As younger kid also Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer 1973”). But I don’t know all episodes.
I found this by coincidence. Rating 7 for now. Needs to be rechecked. Partly on YouTube but in a bad quality. There is or was a DVD set, maybe inofficial DVDr?
Disney TV movie -Year: 1979 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: girl Jamie ~13, others -Available on DVD: VHS
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Katy Kurtzman in blonde pigtails (and open hair) and Cowboy clothes including hat and also wearing another cap. Brown pants and also a short, orange dress (with a sailor-style collar and also with the Cowboy hat).
There are also other (sipporting) actors including a boy like 13 or 14 yo Rusty Gilligan, but I haven’t found him yet, as I only have seen some parts of this movie.
Quite interesting. Not a real Western but at least partly Western-like setting. Set in 1900s San Francisco.
Sitcom starring Jack Elam. 8 ep -Year: 1974-1975 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: T.J. ~10 -Available on DVD: no ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium+ ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: At least Tony Becker (pictured with 12 yo Karen Obediear) and men wearing cowboy hats and jeans.
I don’t know this series but it looks great.
Obviously not on DVD. Also starring Mark Hamill. 13 episodes had been produced (aired only 8, 4+4).
