Nice ranch and riding scenes and also showing chaps. Most boys wearing jeans, chaps and hats.

Rating at least 6-7. But I only have checked it briefly. Unfortunatley the movie is in b&w.

-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.

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

-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).

-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.

He also starred in Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (currently rating 7)

-Comment: At least a pigtailed girl, some boys and a lady in good Western clothes. But I don’t know all episodes.

Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here

/2018/01/01/happy-new-year-2018/

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.

For now rating at least 5-6.

By coincidence even a Christmas movie. And very nice Western setting.

I only have checked it briefly. Kids don’t appear that often.

Part of the Love Comes Softly movie series. Here I only have

Love’s Abiding Joy (rating 5) but this movie here has even better Western scenes. More movies on my bib overalls blog.

I have to recheck it more carefully also for other actors.

Rating ~5 for now.
