Also wearing Cowboy hats: Peter O’Brien and Kevin Harrington (season 1) and some more men. Also several younger kids acting, but unknown if in Western clothes. Probably also riding scenes.

Completely on YouTube in German under the wrong title “Der weiße Hengst”.

I only have checked it briefly as I thought, I had enough pics on my other blog. Needs to be rechecked more carefully, later.

Many kids and also overalls.

So rating at least 5-6.

Update: Father Murphy

fathermurphy4fathermurphy6

Yesterday, I have rechecked some episodes, and this LHOTP spin-off is very good, maybe even better than the original series (except for pigtailed Laura of course). New and much more different boy and girl actors including a light blonde and other handsome boys. Good setting including bunk beds (rating 6). There are also boys riding (ep The Dream Day).

I still haven’t seen the complete series and have chosen these pics.

Pic 1 showing some of the kids in rather colorful clothes (for these days). As usual boys wearing pants with suspenders. Some also bib overalls (rating 6 on my other blog).

Also many girls in pigtails, soon on that blog, rating 6 as well. Main entry here, previousy rated 5 now at least 7.

-Comment: Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams in a beige Western shirt and I think dark pants with brown chaps and a beige (straw ?) hat. Also shirtless. Also starring Jerry O’Connell (shirtless as well). Set in the 1950s.

I found this by coincidence searching for a related (Jean Shepherd / A Christmas Story) movie starring Damon Raskin (for my overalls blog).

Quite interesting but I think few or very few good scenes. Also bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog.

Rating 5-6 for now only.

Today’s Winnetou movies and Gunsmoke episode coming soon.

Also 6 yo Matthew Lawrence in blue bib overalls and also a teen girl (overalls blog rating 4). Publicity pics of Joey in overalls but I haven’t found any in the series.

-Comment: A boy (Charles Fields) in typical light brown clothes and a darker hat, also on a horse. Also a woman, looks like Linda Evans in a light beige shirt and hat and beige pants and a gun belt.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Looks like a typical western with typical plot and clothes.

So rating 4-5 only.

I also have the prequel with a different 13 yo boy (Ronnie Scribner) as Jeremiah (rating 3)
