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.
Comedy film. Roy Black -Year: 1971
-Who in clothing: boys ~9-10 ?
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low+
-Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls) costumed as Cowboys and Indians. At least 2 or 3 but short scenes. Boys in tight jeans including one in beige ones. Simple costumes (toys). Not sure about the names (uncredited). The choir (on the vinyl) was Der Kölner Kinderchor (but probably dubbed) and other actors shown.
Has been aired today, but I haven’t seen it completely. Also available online.
Typical comedy/musical film of it’s time also starring Theo Lingen, Ilja Richter, Eddi Arent, Uschi Glas, Peter Weck and some more. Directed by Harald Reinl.
Could be worse.
Rating 3-4 for now only.
There are also older teen girls/women in Western clothes in 1970 clip Für dich allein (Du kannst nicht alles haben).

-B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low

I don’t remember the complete episode and he only starred in this one.
Very interesting, but Omri Katz and Joshua Harris are better.
Disney-Land s21e4+e5 -Year: 1974 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls, woman -Available on DVD: VHS only ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.
I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.
Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).

I found a headshot of him and wasn’t sure if it might be bib overalls and had to search for the movie. I have briefly checked it and it’s very interesting. I have to recheck it at slow speed. I only found a man in shortalls.
Also soon on my pigtails blog. English title: We Are No Angels.
He also starred in Si può fare… amigo (Halleluja…Amigo), rating 4 , in Cure (1973) and also some few other Westerns like “Il ritorno di Zanna Bianca” and Cosi Sia.
Rating at least 5-6 for now. Typical comedy Western.

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.
