-Comment: Some (teen) boys, girls and women in Western clothes.

I don’t know the complete series. There were many supporting actors. I only found some few kids including 12 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) in s18e4 (color) and Donna Corcoran and others in s2e6 Dear Teacher (pics 2-4). By coincidence I later found a boy (Danny Flower ?) in bib overalls in s13e9 (pic 1, more pics and infos soon on my overalls blog).

Pic 5 showing a young lady in a Cowboy hat in s1e15, maybe Sheila Ryan?

Rating at least 5-6 for now. More episodes needs to be rechecked. Only partly on DVD.

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

-Comment: Some boys and girls in typical western clothes (pants with suspenders). Pic 1 from s1e10 (maybe showing Jimmy Baird (“Fury”)?). In s1e12 there are kids at school. Pic soon on my pigtails blog (rating 4).

Robert aka Bobby Crawford in bib overalls in s5e3 (soon on my bib overalls blog, rating ~6-7). Don Grady in s4e10+11.

I don’t know all episodes but assume rather few scenes of younger actors.

Rating 4 for s1e10+12, probably higher rating for the others. I thought, I already had an entry.

Mickey McGuire short film. Mickey Rooney
-Year: 1928

-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: Several kids including Mickey Rooney (obviously 2 hats at the same time) in Western clothes at least in this episode. I think one girl (tomboy). Probably chaps and riding scenes.

In total, there are 78 Mickey McGuire short films. The earlier ones, including this one are silent films.

Very nice, Our Gang like comedy series. Also some nice scenes in bib overalls (other blog rating 7-(8). Maybe someone can identify an actor there?

For Western scenes rating 4-5 for now.

Comedy musical film
-Year: 1962
-Country: Spain, Mexico
-Who in clothing: boy ~11, girl
-Available on DVD: no
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: I think this is the famous Mexican boy actor Cesáreo Quezadas ‘Pulgarcito’ in jeans and a Cowboy hat. I think role swap with a girl. Uncredited character names. Title means Boy or girl?

I found it by coincidence and only checked it briefly. Pulgarcito also starred in Santa Claus (1959), rating 2.

There’s also a real girl in pigtails, also riding (soon on my pigtails blog, rating 4).

Rating 4-5.

Bad Little Angel

-Who in clothing: Patsy ~11, Bobby 5, boy ~16
-Available on DVD: no ?
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Virginia Weidler as orphan and an older teen boy wearing Cowboy hats. There’s also 6 or 7 yo but older looking Mickey Kuhn as 5 yo Bobby, but probably not in Western clothers. This is not a Western.

I don’t know the complete movie and found it by coincidence.

More movies about Virginia Weidler on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3 for now for this scene. I think not officially on DVD.

-Comment: Some boys and girls, around 9yo, some few a bit younger, in an one-room schoolhouse. Mainly Mexican looking boys. Shirts and pants without suspenders. Also at least one older teen girl. Most or all have pigtails.

Part 2 of the recent Western TV weekend.

Typical b&w western. I think very few scenes of the kids. Also starring James Stewart.

Rating 2-3 for now only.

-Rating: ******
-Comment: Gary Gray in tight, dark, striped pants, I think not jeans, a vest and a flat hat. Also a woman with a Cowboy hat, also riding.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.

Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.

Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.

Rating at least 6-7 for now.

Buffalo Bill, Jr. – s1e2

-Comment: One update of this series. Ep: Runaway Renegade (s1e2). Next to Nancy Gilbert as young Calamity Jane there’s also a teen boy, probably 15 yo Sammy Ogg (“The Adventures of Spin and Marty“). But he wears a typical shirt not that western / rodeo style like the girl.

Rating 3-4 for this episode. Main entry, currently rating 3 as well at

-Comment: At least this unknown boy at the beginning of the movie. Beige pants with suspenders, darker shirt and a dark, flat hat.

I found this by coincidence and can’t say much more.

I only noticed few and brief scenes at the beginning only. Often in the background.

Obviously a typical Western. B&w.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

For these brief scenes rating 2-3 only.
