-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).

Very interesting, but some are quite old.

Rating 6-7. Main entry, previously rating up to 5

Interesting, but typical looking Disney Western. I didn’t had the time yet to watch the complete movie.

Rating 5-6 for now.

-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

-Available on DVD: no *
B&W or color: color

-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?

-Available on DVD: VHS
B&W or color: color

-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.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 7.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Gunsmoke (1955) s20e23

gunsmokes20e23gunsmokes20e23b

Some boys and I think girls as well (Basques) in I think s20e23. Different hats.

Basques are quite rare in a Western. More common are Mexicans.

There are definitely better episodes. Only one more in this series to come.

For this rating 3-4. Main entry rating up to 9

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color

-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: At least these boy and girl, probably Michael Sharrett and Debbie Lytton. Boy in a dark vest and also without. Also in a dark brown hat. Also both in blue caps and I think night shirts. At least one more, a bit older boy.

I found a brief clip on one of my backup discs searching for my shiny shorts blog.

I don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it later.

Sorry, I’m still very busy and currently rarely watch Westerns.

Rating 5-6 for now. Quite interesting but there are better movies. Starring Jim Dale.

Gunsmoke (1955) s20e7

gunsmoke-s20e7

The final season (1974). I think this is obviously Eric Olson “The Swiss Family Robinson (1975)”

Beige pants and typical suspenders. At the end also with a (suit ?) and a hat.

More pics later.

Somehow I don’t like him here. Maybe because of the German dubbing voice. He’s also quite young.

Rating 4 for now only.

Main entry rating up to 9
