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.
Drama -Year: 1997 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~6-10 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: very low ? -Rating: 4/10 -Rating:**** -Comment: Some boys shirtless in shorts and cowboys hats. One younger boy in a vest. One older boy with pink bunny ears.
Maybe a quite interesting and unusual movie, but I assume rather few scenes.
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?
Western, comedy film. Ann Sheridan -Year: 1953 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~5, 7, 9 ? -Available on DVD: no
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording ? -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: 3 young, blonde boys (motherless) in nice Western clothes and hats. Not sure about their names. One is probably Mickey Little (*1941, “Annie Oakley”, Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriett), others maybe Jimmy Karath (1942-2014) and Jerry Wayne. The latter one is credited as boy on IMDb but born in 1916. Probably another mistake there. The 3rd boy (on right ?) is obviously Lee Aaker (*1943, “Hondo“, The Brush Roper), up to rating 8.
Interesting movie, but I only have checked it roughly. I think, I have seen it many years ago. The boys also wore red striped bathing costumes.
Rating 5-6 for now. Boys are very young. Needs to be rechecked the next airing. I think not officially on DVD.
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.
2 more pics, showing Timmy without the hat, looking much different, and also another Quaker boy and some girls. Pic 1 from the beginning of part 2.
Very good movie. I wish, I had recorded it. Obviously even worth buing on DVD, but I think, I’ll wait for the next broadcasting. I didn’t watch the long movie carefully. Handsome actors, also the Indian boys, I usually don’t like. Good plot.
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:
Adventure family film /drama -Year: 2000 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Georgie ~9, men -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: very low ? -Rating: 4/10 ? -Rating:**** -Comment: Thomas Curtis and his film dad in jeans and Cowboy clothes. Also in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).
Funny scene. While this robbery, he’s kissing a girl.
I don’t know the complete movie, but assume very few scenes.
Handsome blonde boy, but quite young. Looks like an interesting movie.
Famous family Christmas movie -Year: 1983 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Ralphie ~12 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: very low -Rating: 4/10 ? -Rating:**** -Comment: ~12 yo Peter Billingsley as 9 yo main character Ralphie in white Western clothes including hat and scarf and cow chaps in a short dream scene. Also his younger brother in rare bib overalls (other blog rating 3). Set in the 1940s.
By updating my entry on my other blog, I found this scene by coincidence.
Great and funny movie, although I don’t like this 2 boys. Some great scenes like a tongue stuck at a frozen pole. (Some more movies with this on my sailor suit blog). Another movie with this family after the 1966 novel by Jean Shepherd is Ollie Hopnoodle’s Haven of Bliss (rating 5).
Interesting clothes, but for this brief scene rating 4 only.
