Family film

-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: b&w
-I own: yes
-Clothing occurence: medium-
-Rating: 3/10 *
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Several boys (and maybe girls as well) as Cowboys and Indians, I think mainly Indians and some few like Mexicans including this one. Most scenes at the beginning. Also many boys in Lederhosen (other blog, rating 8).

I even bought this on DVD.

I don’t like these scenes of Indians. In colour might be much better, It’s also not a Western.

So rating ~3 only.

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 archive.org, 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.

-Comment: Bobby Diamond as 9 yo orphan Joey (season 1) and many other guest stars including Bill Chapin and Jimmy Baird. Pic 4 from s4e2, I think showing Joey on left. Later, I found s1e11 with nice junior rodeo scenes including chaps and Cowboy hats including supporting actors. I previously thought of rating 5-(6), now ~6-7.

Of course a famous ranch series. Riding scenes and tight jeans.

I only have checked some few parts and have to recheck the complete series.

Rating 5-6 for now. Not a real Western anyway.

Rating 6-7.

-Comment: Joey Scott, I think unpictured, blonde boy ~7 yo, and at least one other boy in ranch clothes and jeans.

Soon to be released on DVD in Germany next week (15 episodes only).

Pics from s1e19.

Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 4 for now only. I assume few good Western clothes scenes. Interesting farm series, though. Riding scenes, but not sure if notable scenes of boys. Main plot is about the girl. Remake of the 1944 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, which won 2 Oscars.

-Comment: 10 yo handsome Lee Aaker (“Hondo (1953)” and some other entries I have) most of the time in a medium blue Cavalry uniform and mostly with a black hat and long leather boots. Somehow it doesn’t look like a real Western to me (no Cowboy hat). So I haven’t made a post earlier. I don’t like the uniform. Also some other kids including Indian boy Pokiwah (also shirtless like in s1e25) and some other boys.

Originally filmed in b&w. Also (few) riding scenes. But I don’t know all episodes.

Pics taken from Spanish YouTube clips, might be a different episode number. Pic 1 from s1e3 showing him without the hat. Pic 2 nice riding scene from the German compilation DVD (Rin-Tin-Tin im wilden Westen, 3 ep), Pic 3 showing another boy, from s1e23, pic 4 from the German DVD, pic 5 from s1e22 showing Rusty in other clothes.

Maybe I have to make more posts.

Rating 7 for now.

Rating: *****
Comment: Knut Mahlke (“Die Trapp-Familie”) and Michael Gebühr as young Cowboys with beige Cowboy hats and nice light colored, maybe yellow Western shirts with shiny parts.

I don’t know this movie and only found some pics. One showing Michael Gebühr is this

http://www.cinema.de/stars/star/michael-gebuehr,1595325,ApplicationStar.html

Knut Mahlke looking similar but even more handsome. I assume rather few scenes in a Circus. The movie is not on DVD. I hope for a soon broadcasting or upload. English title: The Dark Star.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: 2 boys in bib overalls (other blog rating 5, soon to be updated), most notable one this boy in faded bibs and a straw hat at the beginning, the other in dark overalls but very briefly shown and some other boys in pants, some with suspenders.

All names are unknown/uncredited. Rather few scenes of the boys.

So rating 4-5 only.

There are better episodes. So rating ~4 only.

Main entry, rating 7

-Comment: Another interesting movie, starring Tommy Ivo and also several other (at least 13) boys and teen boys, including 15 yo Tommy Cook, 11 yo Johnny Calkins, 9 yo Teddy Infuhr, The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir (as Ranch boys) and others. Also at least 1 woman wearing a Cowboy hat.

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.

There are different DVDs available, I can’t say about each image quality. At least some are DVDr. PD Movie. 68 minutes and 54 minutes cut. So watch out.
