-Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.

Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.

I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.

Rating 5.

B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

Update: Zoom (1999)


At least one more Western scene in s5e1. A girl sitting in bib overalls. Taken from my other blog (rating 6 next to some other girls and also a boy).

Main entry here, currently rating 5 at


I also have an interesting Shirley Temple movie on my pigtails blog (Indian teen boy in 3 pigtails): Susannah of the Mounties (1939).

I don’t know all episodes. I have to check more, but I assume very few Western scenes.

Rating 5 for now.

Update: One more girl sitting in bib overalls

Funny scene. While this robbery, he’s kissing a girl.

I don’t know the complete movie, but assume very few scenes.

Handsome blonde boy, but quite young. Looks like an interesting movie.

For western scenes, rating 3-4 for now.

Looks like a quite interesting movie but I haven’s seen it completetly. English title: My Very Best Friend.

But I assume few or very few scenes.

So rating 4-5 for now.

-Comment: At least these two boys (Ilmari Järvenpää and Onni Tommila) as Cowboy and Indian set in 1972 (and later up to the early 1980s). English title “Last Cowboy Standing” and based on a 1990s play. In at least one 2015 play there are also teen girls wearing Cowboy hats and blue bib overalls.

Sorry, I can’t say much more and have to check the complete movie.

Looks lika a quite interesting coming-of-age movie.

Rating 4-5 (for Western scenes) for now. I assume few of them.

7th Heaven


Christian family series, 243 ep., 11 seasons
-Year: 1996-2007
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Sam, David ~9
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: very low
-Rating: 3/10
-Rating: ***
-Comment: At least the twins Sam and David (played by Lorenzo and Nikolas Brino, in fact the Brino quadruplets playing them) in checkered shirts and white cowboy hats in s10e19. Maybe other kids as well (Simon ?) in earlier episodes? But obviously very few scenes as this is not a Western series.

What else to say? Very good series (overalls blog rating 7) and bedroom blog rating 6 (the twins and others rating 4).

Rating 3-4 for this scene.

Horse Crazy


Family film. Director Eric Hendershot

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

-Clothing occurence: often ?
-Rating: 8/10 ?
-Rating: ********
-Comment: I think Michael Glauser, Jonathan Cronin and Brittany Armstrong in jeans and western clothes (she in white corduroy overalls or shortalls, overalls blog rating 3). Nice hats and even chaps. Also riding scenes.

I remember having seen it on TV but some years ago and hope for a soon rebroadcasting.

Eric Hendershot did some very interesting movies with handsome kids, good plots and good scenes/clothes.

The kids are quite young here but I give rating 8 for now.
