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 starring William Boyd, 52 ep -Year: 1952-1954 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Tommy ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another series starring 11 or 12 yo Tommy Ivo. Pics from s1e19 (1952) in which he only appeared. I don’t know the complete series. Maybe some more actors of interest?
Rating 6 for now.
There are also several other, earlier Hopalong Cassidy movies of the 1930s and 1940s which I don’t know. Like Texas Trail (1937) with boys (Billy King) and women.
Western starring Charles Starrett -Year: 1950 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Todd ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium- -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another movie starring Tommy Ivo. Probably filmed earlier as he looks younger than 13 but rather 10 or 11.
At the beginning completely in black clothes including a black hat and a black scarf over his mouth, also riding and then sitting inside (pic 5). In the middle of the movie dark or black pants and a lighter shirt (according to colorized pics light green or red on others). And a beige hat (pics 1-3). At the end in a checkered shirt and riding as well (pic 4).
Although b&w very interesting. But I think rather few scenes with him.
Rating at least 6-7. Available on DVD. 55 minutes only (what was usual these days).
Western, William Powell -Year: 1952 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: David ~15 ? -Available on DVD: VHS *
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium+ -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Tommy Ivo in different clothes. Pic 2 might be sleepwear (long johns ?) Also a blonde young boy at the beginning.
As announced, I checked some more of Tommy Ivo. I found some few movies b&w, but most are not Westerns (My Three Sons, Lassie). Some, I have on my other blogs like Belles on Their Toes, Father is a Bachelor, I even own on DVD also starring Gary Gray). I found this one on archive.org. Movie should be into Public Domain. Officially only on VHS. Some DVD offers available, not sure about their quality.
Rating 6-7 for this. More movies coming later.

Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here
Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.
Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.
