This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.
Educational series -Year: 1999-2005 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boy, girl ~10-12 -Available on DVD: partly VHS
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: very low ? -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: At least this kids in Cowboy hats and jeans in s4e1. One even costumed as cow.
Also several girls and teen girls in bib overalls (other blog rating 6).
I don’t know all episodes. I have to check more, but I assume very few Western scenes.
Western series starring Lorne Greene -Year: 1959-1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: teen boys ~14-18 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: often -Rating: 7/10 -Rating:******* -Comment: Next to Mitch Vogel, there are several other (famous) teen boys acting in this 1972 episode “The Initiation”. Ron Howard (pic 3 on left), Nicolas Beauvy (pic 2), James Van Patten (pic 4 on right ?), Alfred Barker Jr. and Sean Kelly (both also in “The Cowboys 1972” like Nicolas Beauvy), Jeff Smart (“Bless the Beasts & Children”) and some more.
Several scenes of them. Many wearing vests and hats.
I recently find this by searching for Hog Wild (1974) starring Nicolas Beauvy in wet bib overalls (other blog rating 7, still missing pics).
Mickey McGuire short film. Mickey Rooney -Year: 1928 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~5-11 ? -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?
Adventure film. Disney-Land s24e2 -Year: 1976 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Davie ~13, Thud ~10 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Blonde Johnny Doran in grey checkered pants with suspenders and also a dark suit, and black boy Billy ‘Pop’ Atmore in beige bib overalls (other blog, rating 5).
Interesting, but typical looking Disney Western. I didn’t had the time yet to watch the complete movie.
Rating 5-6 for now.
For more infos and pics see my other blog.
Novel by Robert Lewis Taylor (“The Travels of Jamie McPheeters”, also “Guns of Diablo”
Johnny Doran also appeared in LHOTP (s4e6) and some other series like the “ABC Afterschool Specials” 1977 episode “The Pinballs” (bedroom blog, rating 7) and Salty, rating 6.
TV film about grown up Tom & Huck -Year: 1990 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Marcus ~10 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium- ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -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.
Western starring Glenn Ford -Year: 1953 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Carlos ~13, boy, girl -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium- ? -Rating: 4/10 ? -Rating:**** -Comment: Marc Cavell (1939-2004) as Mexican boy Carlos in typical Mexican clothes (pic 2). Also at least a younger boy (maybe Erik Nelson) and girl (Patsy Weil ?) in at least 2 scenes. Pictured at the end.
Has been aired last week, but I missed most of it. I don’t like the Mexican teen boy in black, curly hair. The younger kids are more of interest.
TV Western. 2 parts, Pierre Brice -Year: 1998 -Country: Germany -Who in clothing: Timmy ~12, boys ~ -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 7/10 ? -Rating:******* -Comment: Manuel Trautsch as 12 yo Quaker boy Timmy in a typical Quaker’s hat and knickers (also without the hat), also some Indian boys most notably Lowell Raven as Little Biber (pic below). Also at least one other, younger Quaker boy and 2 girls. Riding scenes.
On 3sat. Still running. More infos coming soon. Also other Westerns on today’s Western day.
Very interesting. Rating 7 for now.
Also on TV “The Man From the Alamo” rating ~3. Next to an older Mexican boy also some others. Update:
Family adventure series -Year: 1992 -Country: Australia -Who in clothing: boy ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: At least this boy in s1e17 “Skippy & the Cowboy”. IMDb says s1e17 is “Skippy and the Stuntman” what is obviously wrong, again. Also a woman with a flat hat, but not a Cowboy hat. Maybe also riding?
Western series James Stacy, 51 ep -Year: 1968-1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Andy ~14, Willie 15, Willy 14, boys, girls -Available on DVD: no *
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 7/10 ? -Rating:******* -Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Bill Mumy as Andy (pic 1) in a light blue shirt, beige pants with a belt and a grey Cowboy hat. Pic from s2e3 The Kid. Also Clint Howard as Willie in light blue bib overalls in s2e14 (pic 4, soon also on my overalls blog). Very interesting episode is s1e25 with many kids (mostly uncredited on IMDb) in and outside a school (including girls) and ~14 yo Ron Howard (pic 3 standing in light blue jeans) and also a young blonde boy in pants with suspenders.
Lots of guest stars including Victor French, Jonathan Harris and many more. As younger kid also Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer 1973”). But I don’t know all episodes.
I found this by coincidence. Rating 7 for now. Needs to be rechecked. Partly on YouTube but in a bad quality. There is or was a DVD set, maybe inofficial DVDr?
