-Comment: 11 yo Matthew Labyorteaux (pic 2 on right in dark brown pants with suspenders) and some other boys, mainly in pants with suspenders. Probably Adam Gunn, Gregg Forrest, Robin Muir and David Considine. Not sure who is who.

One blonde boy in light grey pants with a wide, brown belt, looks more like typical 1970s clothes, same for the shirt.

Also 12 yo Katy Kurtzman in different clothes and long blonde pigtails (with and without ribbons), soon on my pigtails blog, rating 5.

Main entry here, rating up to 9

Rating: *****
Comment: At least Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas in jeans and Cowboy clothes/hat. Pic 2 from the end.

By coincidence I found this some time ago on, but don ‘t remember much and only checked this briefly.

Interesting ranch movie set in the early 1950s but some scenes look like a Western. Nice bedroom.

Rating ~4-5 for now. Kids are quite young.

-Rating: ******
-Comment: 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea, redhaired 14 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) and 7 or 8 yo Jodie Foster starring in this interesting looking Disney TV movie.

I haven’t seen it yet. Typical clothes of that time, pants with suspenders and hats. Also pajamas. I don’t like Mitch Vogel. Eric Shea I like more. He also starred in Gunsmoke, LHOTP and some other movies, I partly have on my other blogs (bib overalls and sailor suits).

Rating 6-7 for now. Probably there are better (Disney) movies.

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 5/10
-Rating: *****
-Comment: At least one of the two brothers (I think Martin Jobert with the darker hair) in Cowboy clothes. His brother filming him.

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.

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

-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-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

-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.

-Comment: Ike Eisenmann (Clay, pic 1 on the right) and Josh Albee in differents pants with suspenders. While painting the house Clay first in grey and Chad in purple pants. Later Clay in light brown and Chad in beige pants. Darker suspenders and brown hats. Several good scenes in s18e8.

Some good scenes also in a store, but Ike Eisenman is very young here. Also both riding on the same horse (Clay on the front). I prefer jeans and overalls, so rating 6 for this episode only. Main entry rating up to 9 with more famous actors at


Josh Albee also in overalls in the 1972 western “Jeremiah Johnson” (rating 3 on my overalls blog).

Kids taking over the parts of grown-ups, but there are also grown-ups here. Most kids-only westerns are not available on DVD.

An interesting and funny movie. Soon more (on all my blogs).

Rating 6-7. Update and 2 more pics on

-Comment: Andy Lawrence in jeans and cowboy hats and different rodeo-style shirts. Also riding. His older brother Joey is bullied by him but he is very old here.

Very good ranch family movie. I like Andy. Very good riding scenes. And one of his best movies and maybe even one of my favourite movies.

Rating 8 although it’s not a western.

I have a TV recording somewhere but haven’t seen it for years.

Savage Sam

-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: often ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: Kevin Corcoran as Arliss in beige pants, also riding (looks like that his suspenders are down) I think also riding shirtless with suspenders on. Pic 1 from the trailer, pic 2 from Behind the scenes. Also starring now grown-up darkhaired Tommy Kirk (also riding, pants with suspenders). Also starring blond Marta Kristen (on horse as well). Probably not wearing a cowboy hat so no tagging women.

Happy New Year!

Another Disney movie. Definitely not as famous as the prequel “Old Yeller (1957)”, rating 6 also starring both.


Kevin is much older and a teen boy now so here more of interest than his brother. I don’t remember the complete movie but the plots seems more like a Western with Apaches and a trail. But it’s also about the family, the ranch and the dog. Novel by Fred Gipson. For more infos see Old Yeller.

Rating 6 for now.
