-Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.

Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).

Great movie, also on my Bedroom blog, rating 10.

-Comment: 8 or 9 yo blonde and freckled Renato Cestiè as Riccardo in white pants (US flag style), black or dark blue Cowboy hat and a shirt or jeans jacket, looks dark blue on pic 2. Also in dark shorts/knickers.

I also have him in 2 Westerns, recently in Noi non siamo angeli, rating 6.

I think few or very few scenes here.

So rating 5-6 only.

I have checked this long time ago and don’t remember much of it.

There should be a school, maybe there are more younger actors?

Rating 6 for now.

I have 3 more Westerns starring Dickie Jones, rating up to 5. Please do a blog search.

-Comment: Renato Cestiè in dark (blue) knickers with suspenders and a cap. Also other boys and girls.

I found a headshot of him and wasn’t sure if it might be bib overalls and had to search for the movie. I have briefly checked it and it’s very interesting. I have to recheck it at slow speed. I only found a man in shortalls.

Also soon on my pigtails blog. English title: We Are No Angels.

He also starred in Si può fare… amigo (Halleluja…Amigo), rating 4 , in Cure (1973) and also some few other Westerns like “Il ritorno di Zanna Bianca” and Cosi Sia.

Rating at least 5-6 for now. Typical comedy Western.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 as well.

Part of the “Love Comes Softly” movie series, rating 3-5. For more infos about this and other movies, please visit my other blog. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Another interesting Janette Oke series is “When Calls the Heart”, but this is set in 1910 though Western town setting.

-Who in clothing: boys, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

I don’t know/ don’t remember the complete movie. Obviously few Western scenes.

A typical boy/dog Disney movie of it’s time.

Rating 5 for now only.

Maybe a quite interesting and unusual movie, but I assume rather few scenes.

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.
