Mickey McGuire short film. Mickey Rooney

-Available on DVD: no ?
B&W or color: b&w
-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

-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.

-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

-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?

-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

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

-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.

As announced on my other blog a quite good and funny play. Many scenes in jeans and that shirt but mostly without the hat and rope. Set in Hamburg in the presence (1960s).

For these brief scenes rating 2-3 only.

The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp

-Comment: Lee Erickson (“The Seven Little Foys” 1955, Lassie 1954, Devil’s Canyon 1953, The Kentuckian 1955 (rating 5), Buffalo Bill Jr. 1956 (coming soon)), in dark pants (probably jeans) and a medium colored shirt. Also riding. He only starred in s1e15.

He’s quite handsome but quite old (for a western kid), around 15 or 16. In other, earlier movies or movies in color he’s much better. Maybe more actors of interest in other episodes. I don’t know the complete series. 227 ep.

Rating 3-4 for now for this one.

Update: Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok

wildbillhickok3-1951

First I thought that this scene is from the 1938 movie The Great Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (rating 5), but this is from the 1951 series Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (rating 7) episode s3e12 (1952).

Not sure about the name of his boy. Probably 12 or 13 yo Robert aka Bobby Hyatt (I think in jeans). He also starred in 3 more episodes.

Rating at least 6-7 for him.

He played in many movies including The Adventured of Huckleberry Finn (1955 Climax! series) as Tom Sawyer, Gypsy Colt and The Roy Rogers Show.
