-Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.

Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.

I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.

Rating 5.

-Comment: At least Canadian Zachary Bennett in beige bib overalls and a straw hat (looking like Huck Finn, but isn’t)

As this is a story about grown up Tom and Huck, the setting must be around 1870s (or even later around 1900s).

This movie is now available on DVD, but I still haven’t seen it completetly.

One more pic, from an old, partial VHS recording on my bib overalls blog, rating 5.

-Rating: ******
-Comment: A young boy, probably 12 or 13 yo Canadian Sammy McKim in dark pants and hat and chaps, also riding. Doesn’t look like jeans.

I only have checked it at high speed. Several scenes with him but rather few good scenes (best at 37 pic 1 and 46 minutes, pic 2). He also wears other clothes including black suit jacket and black pants (with a light cap) and light colored clothes also without cowboy hat.

Quite interesting and handsome, so rating 6-7. 53 minutes. I also have 3 other movies with him.

-Rating: *******
-Comment: Around 13 yo Canadian Corey Haim in Jeans and a cowboy hat, also in olive green bib overalls (at least 2 scenes of farm work but not with a cowboy hat, for more infos and pic see my overalls blog, rating 7 as well). Also some few other boys at a party near the end and a lady (Fields ?) and many men with cowboy hats.

I considered buying this DVD but have checked most of the movie online.Obviously only few good scenes (overalls and jeans). I like Corey Haim (R.I.P.) but I’m still not sure about this movie. Unfortunately no blue overalls, few scenes, no riding of boys ? etc. Some good other boys in tight jeans but also very few and brief scenes.

Corey also trying a hat in a shop. Nice ranch movie.

Rating 6-7 for now.

-Who in clothing:  boys ~8, 12
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: very low
-Rating: 2/10 ?
-Rating: **
-Comment: At least 2 boys shown. Scene from the beginning. One very young boy in the background in shorter white pants. And an older boy, around 12 yo in dark brown greyish clothes. Very few scenes.

Had been aired yesterday. And I have seen most of it.

The movie mainly has dark colors and except the end it’s quite boring.

I like Canada but I think most American (and Italian) westerns are better. Remake of the 1931 “Galloping Thru” which is a lost movie and “The Dawn Rider (1935) starring John Wayne.

I also don’t like this boy, so rating 2 only.

-Comment: Little Dawn Lyn 7 or 8 yo but even much younger looking in maroon red looking but rather brown jacket including a brown hat, a white dress and black pants or tights. Also being carried away under Peck’s arms and sitting on a horse (alone and with Peck). Also wearing another light blue dress and also blue jeans and bathing in a river shirtless. Canadian Nicolas Beauvy, about 12 yo (The Cowboys (1972), The Virginian, Bonanza)  also appeared but probably much fewer. He wears a white shirt and also beige or grey cape and a black beret.

Quite interesting and funny scenes with this little girl and also interesting and rare clothes of the boy. I haven’t seen the complete movie yet but only some few and short clips.

Directed by Henry Hathaway; novel by Will James.

The movie itself looks like a good but typical western.

I think few good scenes, so rating 3-4 for now only.

Alien Thunder

Western starring Donald Sutherland
-Year: 1974
-Country: Canada
-Who in clothing: boys ~8
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 4/10
-Rating: ****
-Comment: One boy in different interesting clothes. Is this James O’Shea? Shorter grey pants and long black stockings and also a brief scene at a burial in a sailor suit (rating 3). Also a very good bedroom scene (soon on my bedroom blog, rating 5).

Aka Dan Candy’s Law. Based upon a true story. Also available on archive.org (I wonder why) but not in widesceen.

But I think I somehow don’t like this movie itself. And I think rather few good scenes of the boy.

Rating 3-4. (But 4 due to the interesting clothes).
